'Tis the Season To Share Blog Love

Five to Follow,  Tis The Season, Christmas, Blog Love

Season's greetings!  Hope you're all well.  It's below freezing and windy outside, but I'm settled in with ginger lemon tea, good company, and warm socks.  

I was recently reading Hanh's blog recommendations and thought, "What a wonderful idea! 'Tis the season to share blog love."  I don't think I do this often enough even though I appreciate the community that builds over time in the blogosphere.  I'm grateful to those who spend time to interact, to link my blog, so I think it's time I pay it forward!  Blogging's given me a chance to interact with people around the world and be inspired by myriad points of view.  Here are a few of my favorite blogs that inspire:

•  deluminators  Jane is a med student (doctor now, eh?) from Sydney who shares her travels, literary finds, and personal tidbits.  Her essay on internalized racism, asian representation, and blogging is an eye opener.

•  Hanhabelle  I'm in awe of Hanh's beautiful photography.  Every photo feels light, airy, and calming -- even when working in artificial light.

•  JennifHsieh  Jenn writes a fashion blog that's a cut above the rest.  She's authentic and her sense of humor shines through every post.  A bit belated, but read her costume ideas from this year and try not to laugh.
•  Brunch at Audrey's  Audrey is a fellow woman in the STEM field who writes a lifestyle blog -- her posts often read as if she's writing to a friend.  Her DIY Secret Santa post had me in chuckles.

•  Daisybutter  I've read Michelle's blog for years and watched it grow as she did.  I love that she's not afraid to tackle meatier topics

As I was compiling this list, I realized that there are more blogs I love than I can fit into one post.  I will be doing a monthly Five to Follow feature starting in January to spread the blog love!

What are some of your favorite blogs?  Leave me some recommendations (even your blog)!
