day 5: adoration

i'm gunna be real honest with everyone and just say that the blog every day in May challenge is hard to keep up with, especially on the weekends! i wrote last night's post at about 11:30pm, in my bed, from my phone, on the yucky blogger app. doesnt make for the best post. i am so sorry.

shame on me for not pre-writing & scheduling them out. maybe next weekend?!

Day 5, Sunday: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don't have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member

ive been blogging for about 5 months now, maybe 6? and i've been really surprised by all the things that have been happening. i definitely wouldnt change a thing, though ive noticed there are different degrees of blogging and bloggers.

a) your content is interesting
b) i leave a comment and you reply
c) you also follow my blog
d) you read my posts as well and comment too.

i get it. there may be a reason that your blog is better than mine, but there is no reason you are better than me.


theres a blogger that stands out in my mind right away as someone who shows a-d listed above. and i admire her. i really feel that i could use the term friend even, you know, instead of blogger.
aislinn over at baby makin' is an all around genuine girl. how often do we even get that anymore? i dont know. but i feel SO lucky to have found her and her blog.
aislinn blogs about her trials as she and her husband try to conceive their first babe. her and i were married the same month, and we both have been diagnosed with PCOS. i admire her so much for documenting her journey and being able to bring some humor into it as well. it takes SO much strength to get through every day and every cycle when trying to conceive.
i knew she was absolutely fantastic from the start, but ais went above and beyond. one day, my husband and i got a package in the mail. from mississippi, from aislinn! inside? 5 growing outfits, a sleeper and adorable teeny socks for baby G. i dont know if the best part was that there were elephants on two of the outfits or if i just found myself a completely selfless wonderful friend for life. {okay, obviously the friend part trumps the elephants. but they are SO cute! i love me some elephants!}
i am just in awe. having been in the TTC stages for many many months myself, i know how hard it is to be happy for someone else when they announce their pregnancy. but aislinn isnt just another person struggling with trying to have a wee one. she is so much more than that, and i couldnt thank her enough for being who she is - or the big man upstairs for putting is into each others lives.
i cant wait to continue talking to her and cheering her on until she gets her bfp.

blogging has led me to so many wonderful ladies and i am just overwhelmed with the love.


  1. Oh my gosh Sarah! I decided to browse through blogs before bed and I find this?! I don't know what to say. Thank you so so so much for the kind words, they mean so much to me. I started crying at my desk and made Keegan read what you wrote.

    I'm so lucky to have found a friend in you. I don't know what I would do without you. You have been there through all the ups and downs of our TTC journey, always cheering me on. I simply cannot wait until Baby G gets here and you and Isaiah get to fulfill you dreams of being parents. Baby G is incredibly lucky to have a mom and dad like you guys.

    Thank you again for all of the kind words. You have no idea how much they mean to me and how absolutely lucky I have to have you guys in my life. <3 Love you girl!

  2. What a sweet post. It really is amazing what blogging can bring into your life.
    And, a-freakin-men to "those bloggers" who seem to believe they are above other bloggers. Whomp whomp whomp!

  3. That's so nice!I think it's so sweet that you were able to connect with someone so similar through the internet...who would have ever thought? Hope you had a great weekend. XO

  4. Give yourself some credit, girl. I love your blog!
