What a blush

This is something that has been rolling around in my mind for a while now.  A way to tell you about all of my favorite people in an authentic, real way.  I don't ever want for people to pay me to support something or someone, because that is no longer real.  Instead, I want to tell you about the people who I truly love.  And from that, the "blush" was created.  What is a blush?

Blush:  noun.  def: a Blog crush.

Highly technical, I am aware.  Try to stick with me.  Today, on this lovely Saturday, when hardly any other bloggers are sitting down to write, I want to tell you about my 2 favorite blogs that you've probably never heard of.  These are the blogs I love that have just a few followers, and for the life of me, I can not understand why.  I'm really hoping that after today, you will love them as much as I do.

I totally stole this from her blog, it was too cute!
First up today is KB from Tragic and Lovely.  Guys.  This girl is the real deal.  She is a true writer, but she doesn't let her posts get so long and wordy that you give up halfway through.  She is a CO blogger.  She talks about what is real for her, and she makes no apologies.  Not only that, but she is also really sweet!  She sent me an email earlier this week asking if she could send me a Christmas card.  I loved her before that, I really did.  But now I love her more.  And for the life of me, I can't understand why her following is not at 500+.  I'm going to brag it up when in a year, she's a big-deal blogger, and I can say that I knew of her blog way back when.

Now, on to really, REALLY cool news... Miss KB is hosting her first ever giveaway on her blog, and she isn't even asking you to follow her.  She is simply asking that you leave a comment on her blog.  So click here to go check out her lovely blog, and the adorable package she is giving away!

Another photo stolen from a blog.  I wanted this post to be a secret!
And this is Kim from Typical Kim.  I mean, she and I met through the Christmas ornament swap when she was asked to send me an ornament.  Even though I wasn't shopping for her, I did want to find out what she was all about.  And I was so stoked to find someone who truly gets me.  She wants to sign up for a CSA farm share.  She has a lab-mix.  She loves wine.  I mean, there is nothing about this girl I dislike. And I didn't even mention that she has my favorite brand of mildly self-deprecating humor.   I have no doubts that if you go and visit her, you will want to stay a while.

Do you have some favorite bloggers that you don't think get enough credit for what they do?  I would love to meet them.  Please leave a comment below with their link so that I can visit them and find out just what it is about their blog that is so incredible!  I hope you are having a great weekend =)


  1. You are too much!! Thank you so much :) I'm so happy we were partnered up during the ornament swap! I'm also just a little bit jealous of all these CO bloggers...I've always wanted to go and just enjoy the mountains (& now come see you!!!)

  2. I have been dying for some new bogs to start reading, so this is awesome! :-)

  3. I LOVE THIS POST, even though you included my spirit week picture :)
    You are the best and brought tears to my eyes - thank you!

  4. That is fun how you and Kim met! How did you get involved in something like that?


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
