As a blogger, I spend hours scouring the Internet for the best of the best on anything from mom, baby, wedding inspiration, to decor, food, and crafting tidbits. But in the years of searching, reading and loving, you can’t help but come out with some faves. I am thrilled to share a site that falls on the top of my list…Spearmint Baby. Shari has a magical way of sharing personal stories without boring the crapolla out of you. With a collection of wonderful contributors, a simple site design, and an eye for simple perfection, I can say that I almost ALWAYS open the frequent Spearmint Baby Newsletters I receive in my inbox (sign up to receive your updates, you’ll love them!).
And my dirty little secret of the day is that I hardly ever open the “newsletters” I receive, as I hardly have enough time to open the emails needing my attention.
I have really enjoyed one of her latest features, her Wednesday and Thursday segment called “Show Your Bump!” Where pregnant women send in BUMP photos and details about her pregnancy. It is fun to have a place to share and compare your photos with other women who are pregnant. If you are preggers and want to share your bump, here is what Shari posted on her blog just for YOU:
are you PREGNANT?
send a photo/s of yourself (and your BUMP) to Spearmintbaby@gmail.com
feel free to include wks pregnant, boy or girl, 1st/2nd/3rd baby, cravings, and/or something interesting about your pregnancy. we all enjoy reading fun pregnancy details!! if you have a blog, etsy store, or website we would love to give you some link love!
p.s. i have received sooo many adorable pregnancy photos….and will be featuring one of you every Wednesday & Thursday so check back!!
REMINDER, when you submit your photos you can also share how many wks pregnant, boy or girl, 1st/2nd/3rd baby, cravings, and/or something interesting about the pregnancy. It looks like tons of fun. I may need to get knocked up just so I can document my pregnancy better, I have been inspired! I guess the more rational idea would be to send the pics from my last pregnancy, but that’s no fun : ) Anywho, We would love for you to share your pics and make sure you let us know if you do so that we can share the love from here.
And to show you just how personal Shari gets on her blog, you’ll have to check out her labor diaries, as she posted updates throughout labor–now that’s a truly devoted blogger!! Here is a sneak peek into the documented labor (it was a big hit on the site)…
Check out the awesome fresh-out-of-the-oven pics of baby Rex.
