Ladies Only Blog Share Link Party: These Crazy, Stressful Holidays


Welcome back to our Ladies Only Blog Share Link Party! Our theme this week reflects on the total chaos and stress that often comes along with the holiday season. Buying presents, decorating, baking, holiday parties…We want you to relax and unwind! So please take a moment to link up your festive posts, tips and ideas for the holidays, simple recipes, funny Christmas stories, etc. And thanks for stopping by!

Once again, here are my talented and dedicated co-hosts:

This week we are also welcoming back a very special co-host, Amber from City Girl on Hicks Farm. Please make sure to bookmark or RSS feed their blogs and visit them on Facebook, Twitter and so on. They faithfully return the favor! In addition to the link share, three really cool bloggers are also being featured. This week they are (in no particular order):

This Happy Mom – Find peace and harmony – escape to Susan’s blog, This Happy Mom!

Being a Wordsmith – Live, laugh, love is probably the best way to describe Being a Wordsmith! Kimberly, the voice behind the blog, happens to be a published author, too!

A Splendid Messy Life – Am I being spied on? A blog about the life and times of being a mama!
