Blog Love

Ok I am a woman obsessed.  A few weeks ago I finally discovered the brilliance of the blog Orangette.  I had been introduced to it earlier this year and had read and entry or two, but for some reason the universe pulled me back to the site and I fell head over heels in love.  For weeks I was smitten and spent any free time I could reading every entry from 2004 until this past Saturday. The blog is an exploration of food and contains positivley stomach rumbling recipes and drool-worthy photographs, all written and taken by Molly Weizenberg.  She had a new book come out earlier this year called A Homemade Life which I now covet.  I highly recommend you make way to her site. You will not be dissapointed.  Literally there were times when I would gasp and cover my mouth in amazement, her writing is so beautiful, so funny and inspiring.  I think Molly and I would make great friends.  My idol used to be SJP, it is now Molly Weizenberg.

Orangette aside, I have a growing list of fantastic blogs that I read on a daily basis, and I figured there was no time like the present to show they a little love via cyberspace.  I am a giver, what can I say?  Take a gander at them won't ya?

31 Flavors (an exciting challenge!)
A Bird, A Carpenter, and a Baby (*warning* cute baby pictures contained inside)

Eco to the People (going green, while saving green)
Erica's Battle Blog (so moving and inspring)
Kevin Weinstein Photography (images that will melt your heart)
Life Between Naps (get ready to laugh so hard you cry)
Save My Hippie (an inspiring site from a Broadway actress)

The Broke-Ass Bride (a blog that has exploded in the past year and a half.  The author will be a star, I have no doubt).

I am always on the hunt for new great blogs to add to my blogroll.  Have some suggestions? I would love to hear- post a comment below!

Happy reading to all, and to all a goodnight!
