A New Favorite!

You guys know I'm all about the blogs.  I love following friends and family to peek in on everyone's lives.  I love sharing the "tedious" details of my own journey through the world.  And even though there are a thousand other things I should be doing tonight, I've enjoyed catching up on my blogs.  There are many types of blogs out there, but I boil all of them down to three categories:
1.  People I Know
2.  People Who Know People I Know (I check in on Laura's family every once in a while and I found some great mommy blogs from ladies who are friends-of-friends)
3.  People I Don't Know But Wish I Did

Until tonight, category number 3 included nothing but a bunch of designer mommies who I like to check in on every now and then.  Heather Armstrong has been my hands-down favorite, but ever since she got all famous with HGTV I've been a little bored with her.  So, I was delighted when I checked Erin's blog and found a link to this guy:

First, I read his post on Perfection, which I have to admit, was really quite powerful.  But then, I wandered around his blog and found the post I just linked called, "Noah: An Adoption Tale."  You know I'm a sucker for birth stories, but the story of his son's birth is by far, hands down, no contest, the BEST birth story I've ever read.  And I've read a lot of them.  Maybe I love it because we don't usually see the perspective of an adoptive father.  At any rate, it's remarkable and I suggest you read it, then browse through his blog like I did, and I bet you'll have a wonderful time.

I'm sure you've already seen this lady's blog, but I thought I'd share it in case you haven't. I sobbed when I read this birth story!
