Life With Joys
Marci's blog is so encouraging and inspiring - I guarantee you will always be touched when reading her lovely blog.  She also has written a book - "From Broken to Beautiful".  This is how Marci describes herself & her blog:
I am a Jesus lovin' girl who strives to please Him.  I love going to church and worshipping with my family.  Jesus is not a Sunday fellow, He is an everyday kind of guy.  As a family, we try and live for Him daily.  I am not a stick to church rules gal.  The rules I follow come from the way He does....plain and simple.

Grace, Lace & Iron

Julie's wonderful blog will get you on the right path to becoming &/or staying healthy! Checkout her ebook: "Cheap, Clean Recipes Vol 1".  This is how she describes herself & her blog: "I have been working out since I was 8 or 9, but I took a few hiatuses...Five years ago, I lost almost 40 pounds! I was really unhealthy, not so much because of my weight, but stress was killing me, literally. So, I decided to become a group fitness instructor, and I didn't turn back. I love helping people find ways to be healthy that work for them!"

The different venues I have used to go about parenting as smoothly as I have been able to for the past 18 years."

Rare Red Seaglass from Lake Michigan and Sparkly Rhinestone High Quality Cherry Charm on Silver Bail and Chain Necklace
Red seaglass/beachglass is a rare find - and I found this one in Lake Michigan near Traverse City which is the Cherry Capital of the World!  I have carefully drilled the red beach glass into a bead to daintily dangle along with a sparkly sweet cherry rhinestone charm from silver and red jumprings from a silver slide-bail onto a silver chain. Even the lobster clasp is large for ease of use and is quality stainless steel connected to a cute tiny tag steel connector.  The chain undone end to end is 21 inches, and as worn including seaglass/cherry charm will hang 12 inches.
