Mari chose Motherhood Madness from Coffee Mounds & Lipstick Clouds. "I always enjoy parenting humor so this was great treat."

Jessica Candy Cane Layer Cake chose from Annie's Noms. "This cake looks amazing!"

Bev chose Cranberry Orange Walnut Sweet Rolls from The Gold Lining Girl. "Wow, these would be so heavenly to have on Christmas morning. My husband would love the ones with figs. Need to try that one too."

Aliyah chose Spending the Holidays Along? 5 Tips to Help You Through It! from our very own Natasha from Epic Mommy Adventures. "Natasha wisely and supportively guides single parents to successfully negotiate and navigate the holidays for the benefits of all involved: themselves, their exes and, most importantly, their children, too."

Reuven chose Review: Squatty Potty from Reviews, Chews & How-Tos. "chose this post because it takes a humorous look at one of life's requirements and introduces a very interesting and potentially valuable product at the same time."

Natasha 6 Things to Let Go to Live a Truly Happy Life chose from Urban Naturale. "I think people dwell too much on having that one additional thing in life - money, wealth, a house, that new car - to make them feel happy. Happiness is something that lives within and exudes out, and this post makes this clear. I am a great believer in being happy and letting go of those things that don't bring me joy. Great post!"

Natasha 25 Awesome Christmas Cocktails chose from Budget Girl. "After the holiday shopping, wrapping gifts in the middle of the night, and assembling numerous gifts on Christmas, I'm craving one of these cocktails. Thanks for the sharing!"

The post with the most views Winter Solsticeis from Pleasures of the Northwest.

Paperless Posts

I know it is late, but thought you might be interested in the following:

With the holidays just days away, there are so many great causes to think about in the spirit of giving back. Paperless Post is one example, partnering with (RED) this holiday season in support of the fight against AIDS. In addition to offering beautiful designs, this is also a great opportunity for last-minute Christmas and holiday cards.

The holidays seem to approach in no time at all, and it can be hard to find time to craft beautiful cards for everyone with the hustle and bustle of entertaining and celebrating. Here you can explore a variety of beautiful designs, all from Paperless Post’s charity collection. With each online purchase from the (RED) section, 25% will go in support of the cause. The online cards and invitations are filled with customizable options that can be sent online, delivered quickly and tracked with ease.

Check out all of these designs and find your favorites!
