Free Ad May | Highlights & Friends

Happy Saturday friends!!

I hardly ever post on Saturday, but today is a special exception!  I have been looking forward to doing this all month!!  I had so many people sign up for my Free Ad May, and I had a great time meeting them, and following all of their unique adventures!  Now it is time for me to introduce you to them!  They are a group of amazing and diverse women who are all doing amazing things!  If you haven't checked them out yet, you now have no excuse!  It is a MUST!  

This was such a fun thing, and I have really enjoyed having these women grace my sidebar space!  One of my favorite things about blogging is the community that you build with people in all walks of life.  As a whole, blogging communities look for ways to support their members, and that is what I wanted to accomplish with this free ad month.  I wanted to support other bloggers, and I lucked out by having an amazing group to support!  I can sit here and tell you they are all wonderful, but here are some highlights about my new blogging friends!

Abbigayle Rashae
I love Rashae's blog!  She is very inspirational!  Whether it is her Strong Female Figure series or her Motivational Monday series, she is always inspiring others to reach for the stars!  I was so inspired by her #TryItFor30DaysChallenge, and if you didn't follow it, here is your change to challenge yourself! Here is her little bio:
I'm Rashae, a seventeen year old, currently living in southeast New Mexico. I'm especially interested in psychology and web design. I've completed three semesters of college for the latter subject. I enjoy sharing my views on feminism, motivating others, drinking too much caffeine, and buying cheap tee shirts from the men's section at Walmart. I love meeting new people and having friendly debates, so please don't be afraid to say hello!

Maggie's blog was a new one for me, but she has some awesome recipes and tips!  If you love Greek food but you don't know if you can fix it on your own, Maggie's blog is where you need to be!  Here is a little more about Maggie!
Creating food for family and friends is always a joyous event and being Greek, food and family go hand in hand !! Cooking is a part of my daily life. I don't assume everyone knows how to cook, so my blog is set up to be easily read, by an expert or an amateur, with a step by step instructions( which I believe are the easiest to follow) All of my dishes have been tried and tested by family and friends at various occasions.  Food for me is an indulgence, not something to be overlooked and eating together at the table plays a significant role in our daily lives. At Mommy's Kitchen you will find wonderful homemade recipes, some are traditional while others represent a story or a certain time in my life. the comon thread is that each recipe is created to be enjoyed. Come and join me on my weekly cooking adventures!

Fox Emm is my foxy lady featured in my latest Weekend Snapshot!  She is amazing at everything!  Since I told you all about her Tuesday, here is how she describes herself!
I'm a 20something freelance writer, blogger, and social media consultant who loves to write about writing, blogging, and share great resources with other writers and bloggers. I also write for a variety of horror-themed entertainment websites, so a google search might turn up results on pages like Wicked Horror or Gores Truly. I am currently living in Virginia with my boyfriend and two adorable Chihuahuas, and I would love it if you would take a moment to pop by my page!

Mitchael Journey
Andrea's blog is another new one for me, but I am already falling in love with it! She hosts a linkup on Tuesdays called Tuesday Talks, and I absolutely LOVE her Frugal + Fresh page! She has so many great ideas! Here is Andrea's bio!
Our little family lives in South Florida and leads worship at a church here. We are here to share the love of Christ and live life together. We have a 2 1/2 year old boy and a 1 month old baby girl! I share our ministry journey and family updates along the way. 

Lauren is another new blog for me, but it is right up my alley!  She gives her readers tips and tricks for living on your own, out of the nest, for the first time!  I haven't lived at home for seven years, but I still find so many useful tips on Lauren's site, including her cute DIYs!  Here is a little more about Lauren!
Hey everyone! My name is Lauren and I am a blogger and college student studying Psychology and Spanish and I write on Life Out of the Nest. I love writing and sharing DIYs and cooking and experimenting with new recipes. And I love helping people and giving advice so I love helping college kids save money and time and find ways to stay healthy. Hope you all check out the blog! :)

Hannah's blog is super cute and super awesome!  She is one of the admins for the Facebook group, Let Your Blog Shine, which is one of the blogging groups I am a part of!  She lives in the UK, and is always on an adventure!  But I will have to let her tell you more about herself!
Hey I’m Hannah. I live in Bedford, England with my three boys. There’s Chris my husband, Our Sidekick who is our foster son and Jaxon who is our son. My blog is all about our crazy adventures and finding out way through fostering and the unusual line up we have. When I’m not chasing around after them three I run my own business, Daisy Media, the idea behind it is to do social media for small businesses the idea being I can take it off their hands and they can focus on running their businesses. in my “spare” time I love to read, crochet and knit as well as play with my camera. I watch way too much TV and way too many movies!

Life According to Lina
Lina's blog was another new one for me, so I will let her introduce herself!
I'm a Child of God who loves blogging, giveaways, reviews, music, reading, baking, shopping, and crafting! I love offering my readers new ideas and recipes and enjoy reviewing family-friendly products that I know they'll enjoy!  I also love sharing about great products and amazing companies with my readers, as well as offering awesome giveaways and finding great deals! In my spare time, I love to read, bake, play games, cook, and play the piano. I live in Maryland with my family.

Eating to Live
Aisha's blog is also a new blog for me, but since I am trying to eat healthier, I am learning a lot about Aisha and her health journey!  She has some awesome recipes!  Here is her bio!
My name is Aisha LC and I blog over at Eating to Live. Eating to Live focuses on my journey of healing through food. I focus mainly on a grain-free and paleo lifestyle and share my testimonies, tips, and recipes. My goal is to inspire and encourage those to reach their goals and never give up on your dreams. My motto is that “It is journey, not a race. Not even a marathon. Enjoy each step!” I hope you will come and join me on my journey!

Brooke's blog is a great place to go when you need inspiration and motivation!  She is a life coach, and she has made it her mission to embrace, strengthen and inspire women all over the world!  I will let her tell you a little more about her blog!
Bye, Comparison is a place where women can come to encourage others and to be encouraged to live creatively, honestly, and fully (faith*fully) without the common and harmful Comparison game. We each have unique experiences, strengths and weaknesses and therefore we each have a lot to share and teach each other. Big stuff and little stuff and everything in between. Letters to our daughters (and each other), creative DIYs, funny stories, home, family, life---as creatively, honestly, and fully as we can muster.

Suzanna's blog is all about hooligans!!  She has two of the cutest little boys in the world, and they are always into something new!  She is another new blog for me, and I have definitely enjoyed following her adventures!  Here is a little more about Suzanna!
I'm Suzanna and I blog over at One Hoolie Mama where I share our adventures with our hooligans ("hoolies" for short). I'm a wife, boy mom, fur mom, runner and fitness enthusiast, lover of chocolate and wine, volunteer, who also happens to work full time.

This idea was so cool in that I discovered so many new blogs!  I realize there are thousands if not millions of blogs out there, but I discovered several blogs that spoke to me on a deeper level!  I found friends and I found inspiration around every corner!  These ladies are AWESOME, and thank you for giving me the opportunity to do this!
