Big Little Living

Blog Shine Sunday {Aug 18}


I’m very much about letting other people shine, because it makes us all shine brighter.
Chelsea Handler

Lois (from Living Simply Free) does a “Friday Faves” post. She is a lovely woman with a beautiful heart for all living things. She practices what she advocates (and has some great pictures to prove it!). She reminds me often that life is not just about us and what we do. It’s about what we give. I’m still fairly new to this blog thing but I’d like to do a weekly spotlight of others. It’s a way to shine the light on others’ beauty. I like that. Because there’s so much beauty out there…

Living Simply Free (
“simple living in 300 sq ft and saving the planet one day at a time”
(had to list Lois as my first link – she is the one who inspired me to do this!)

Smart Living 365 (
“Sustainable Meaningful Aware Responsible Thankful”

Journeys of the Fabulist (
“Making it up as I go along.”

Big Little Living (
“Big ideas, little changes, better living”

From 2 to 3 Kids (
“Simplifying my life (700 items gone so far), detoxing my world, and still hoping for baby no.3”

My Year of Sweat (
“I have spent a lifetime chasing quick fixes with disappointing results. Now I’m ready to make a real change. So… I resolve to make 2013 My Year of Sweat. I will exercise each of the 365 days of this year… even if it kills me!!!”

The Snazzy Turtle (
“Musings on life, simplicity, and design”

It is my hope that you will find at least one on this list that you will read and love. I love them all. I considered making the list much longer (to include all the blogs I read) but I’m going to stick to seven. I have this terrible habit of biting off more than I can chew when it comes to personal projects. Keeping it seven at a time helps keep me focused. I included a tagline from each blog to help give you an idea of what you might find. They are all wonderful stories and very close to my heart.

I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I do.
