    Hi Ruth! I hope it is okay that I shared an “un-thrifty” post about the importance of Balance in Motherhood. Many people ask me how I handled the “Empty Nest” after my life revolving around my daughters for so long.
    Truth is preparing for that day starts the moment you become a Mother. Hoping I can help other Moms by sharing my experience. : )
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Hi Ruth! This was the first time I linked to your party and I mistakenly added my link twice (#55 and 57). The first time I put my own name in the ‘Name’ section, instead of the name of my post. Hopefully it’s easy to delete the first one..I’m sorry to create extra work for you. Thank you for hosting the link party!

    Thank you for hosting. I am number 86 — We Can’t Live on What We’ve Got.
    A lot of of us are thrifty because we’re not billionaires. And not being billionaires, we have a limit to our resources, even when we’re using it well. So we’re tempted sometime to think that we can’t do it with the resources we have been given — but we can. Not only that, but we can often do it on less.
    Believe in yourself.

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform
    you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but
    I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Headboards add impact, visual interest and luxury to a room, letting you
    store decorative knick-knacks around your bed. You can find plywood
    at any home improvement store. Starting from the middle of the top start stapling it to the back of the plywood pulling
    it tightly as you go.

    Very interesting blog. Alot of blogs I see these days don’t really provide anything that I’m interested in,
    but I’m most definately interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.
