Okay, here’s our next installment of the “New and Improved” blogroll …
Some blogs I just read every day because the bloggers are amazing writers, and they make me a little jealous with their unique twists on the ordinary. Here are some of my faves:
Sheye Rosemeyer — Sometimes she makes me cry; sometimes she makes me laugh. And all of Australian Sheye Rosemeyer’s photographs stun me. Her tale of her daughter’s death is so sad it makes my heart hurt, but I love the way she shares the “missing” with us in a way that’s so honest and loving. I also love the way she enjoys her three small children and shows us to celebrate every day of our children’s lives. … Oh, and did I mention the stunning photos? Stunning, stunning, stunning …
The Fabulous Geezersisters’ Weblog — Ruth Pennebaker describes herself as a “woman old enough to call herself ‘fabulous,’” who writes about “families, politics, marriage, friendships, feminism, aging and whatever else occurs to her.” Her observations of life around her – and how inane and ridiculous it can be – always make me smile. I’m betting she was a columnist somewhere – she has that “newspaper style” I love.
Pioneer Woman — “The Pioneer Woman,” Ree Drummand, has won plenty of awards, but she doesn’t rest on her laurels: she just seems to get better and better. Her gorgeous photography and poignant stories about being a desperate housewife on the frontier are endlessly engaging. She talks about parenting, cooking, gardening, homeschooling, shopping, entertaining, remodeling – all those things we do, but usually with civilization around. Her photos, however, really set her apart – truly gorgeous.
Sweet Juniper! — This husband-and-wife team, Jim and Wood, write about life in Detroit with their two small children. Jim does most of the writing – and it’s fabulous. I don’t care what he writes about, frankly – he always sucks me right in and draws me along for the ride. There’s some really great photography here, too. (What’s up with so many great bloggers being great photographers???)
I hope you enjoy these writers as much as I do!
Stay tuned for my next installment – wonderful new blogging friends, old friends who now blog, and beloved family who are doing some great blogging, too!
