And here are the Featured posts!


Stacy chose The Importance of Thank You Cards from Cats on the Homestead. “I couldn’t agree more that people need to continue (or start) the practice of sending ‘Thank You’ cards! As much as I love social media and all of the new technological gadgets, nothing beats receiving a tangible card in the mailbox from someone wanting to thank me for a gift, for attending a party, etc. In this day and age of texting, we are all guilty of being lazy and feeling that a simple ‘Thank You’ text will suffice, but what meaning does it really have when it only two seconds to write and hit send?!”


Angel chose Ruffle & Lace Wall from Penny’s Vintage Home. “I am a huge Shabby Chic fan and this wall is awesome.  I never would have thought of trying something like this but I love it.  What an original idea and it’s so soft and warm.”

mongramAngie chose Eucalyptus adorned monogram letters from Make It Easy Crafts. “Green is my favorite color (especially dark green) and I think that is what first caught my eye.  Then when I clicked on it and found out that these beautiful monogram letters were made from Eucalyptus leaves – I liked it even more! – The smell of Eucalyptus even when it’s dried is wonderful!”

paying-it-forward-1024x1024Jessica chose Paying It Forward from The Coconut’s Head Cancer Survival Guide.

“Paying It Forward has always been a special cause of mine. I think the reason why were put in this world is to help and love one another. Paying it forward is one way to do that :).

I’m supporting a cause for my son’s daycare too. It’s my way to give back to the community this year so the parents who have infants can head back to work knowing their children are in good hands. Here’s the link: http://www.gofundme.com/675wo4 “



Stacey chose While You’re Asleep from Pink Heart String. “This post from Kareen brings so many images of me and my own children. Watching the peaceful beauty on their while they sleep. It always pulls at my heart and makes me feel such love and adoration for all that they give me.”

Natasha also chose While You’re Asleep from Pink Heart String. “This post is so touching. It is such a beautiful post. It’s a testament to the great mom that Kareen is and we all can be. It’s so beautiful watching your child sleep. I do it with my son all the time. He just seems so much at peace and so happy and it makes me feel the same.”


April chose I Never Knew… #828Blessings from Mrs Tee Love Life Laughter.  “A lot of things have been happening lately, and sometimes things that should be easy, aren’t. Remembering that things are working for my good is something that I need to remember!”

Tiffany’s post also received the most clicks this week.


Dara chose Random Thoughts… from the Domain of the Mad Mommy. “My favorite post is Random Thoughts from The Mad Mommy – it is funny and what I feel is so typical of a mom’s random stream of thoughts!”

And the Best of the Best is…

About Natasha

Hi, I'm Natasha! I'm a 30-something Program Manager and blogger at Epic Mommy Adventures. Most importantly, I'm a single mom to my adorable son, who drives me nuts in one moment and melts my heart in the next.

  1. Thanks so much for featuring my post on The Importance of Thank You Cards. I really didn’t expect this post to get much attention but it seems to have hit a cord with a number of people. The personal touch has always been important but maybe it is even more so in the electronic/social media age.

    • It was well deserved! Your post really hit a cord because numerous people complain about the personal touch being taken away due to electronics. It is so important to provide a personalized thank you message for events, parties, and just saying thank you in general. It was a great post!

      Thanks so much for stopping by and linking up with us each week! We love having you! 🙂

  2. Thanks for hosting and co-hosting! Got all the hosts and co-hosts followed {except for 100lbsandcounting because either something is wrong with my computer or else the HTML is broken on her page. Those who didn’t link up this week, I simply followed without posting comments.} 🙂 Have a great week!
