Here are some amazingly good posts I read this October.
I stopped breathing for a few seconds as I read this post. Brilliantly done, terribly sad as well, is this post by Tonya of Letters for Lucas: Heartbeat
There are so many wonderful posts at Just.Be.Enough. This one by Robin Farr really lifted my spirits: Five Things That Make Me Smile
I recently discovered The Butter Bottom Blog. Seriously funny stuff from the dad's point of view: Kids, Karma and the New Basketball Goal
I also recently discovered a new fun community over at Free Fringes. It's called Lovelinks. Link up your favourite post from the week, visit others, and vote on your favourites. It's a wonderfully supportive place to hang out. Here is one of my favourite posts from this past week: How to Amuse Your Children With Math. And guess what? I was voted #4. Pretty cool, huh? Thanks to everyone who visited and commented on my entry. Your support is very much appreciated. Congratulations to the winners, @mommy2cents and @amorninggrouch.
This month I had the pleasure of picking a topic for NorthWest Mommy's Monday Listicles meme over at The Good Life. The topic was Ten Tips for New Moms and I loved reading everyone's take on it! So fun! In case you missed them, here are just a few of my favourites:
her rebellious post. Check it out, along with the rest of the fantastic and unique interpretations of this topic, at The Good Life. You can read my Ten Tips for New Moms here.
I had fun participating in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge this month with Project Alicia, Bumbles and Light and Live and Love Out Loud. I had fun focusing my lens on yellow, orange and red, and it gave me an opportunity to capture some images of my garden at this majestic time of year.
I also started 'pinning' this month. I know, I know. I already have far too many guilty pleasures. But who can resist? Visit me on Pinterest to see my favourite Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge submissions. Just beautiful!
Finally, I have already mentioned my Ten Tips for New Moms post. That's probably the post that I am most proud of writing this month. This one is a close second: Bull Canyon, A Boatbuilder, A Writer and Other Wildlife: Book Review and Interview with Lin Pardey. Bull Canyon was a really wonderful read. I enjoyed interviewing the author Lin, an inspirational woman.
I can hardly believe October is winding to a close already. I hope you all are enjoying the fall and looking forward to the coming winter.
Thanks to all of you for another great month and for putting out such great content!

Psst! I'm also linking up with Rach of Life Ever Since for Life's Lessons and Erica of Free Fringes for Lovelinks. Be sure to check out these fun memes!
