A Short Break

Taking a break on Christmas day

Hello Friends!

Today is January 1st of a brand new year and I am excited to see all that 2011 has in store for us.

I am taking a one week sabbatical from blogging to devote my time and attention to my family.  It is going to be hard to be away from this little space of mine, and I will miss my conversations with all of you.  Many days I wake up thinking about what I want to write, photos I want to share, and all of the details it takes to keep A Bushel and A Peck going.

But, I have a wonderful treat in store!  I asked a few of my blog friends to write Guest posts.  Some are well-known, and others may be new to you, which I think you will enjoy.  There will be a wonderful new post each day that I am absent from A Bushel and A Peck.

I’ve had a great time reading the posts as I’ve gotten them ready to share with you.  There are so many amazing mothers out there who can teach us, make us laugh, and even help us figure out what to do with our kids on a winter afternoon.

I’ll be back soon.  In the meantime, keep rocking your babies!  If you haven’t signed up for the Rockin’ Mama Challenge, I hope you will join us.  You can read more about it HERE.

Have a wonderful start to 2011 and I will see you all soon.

If I could give you a hug — I would.

Blessings my friends,

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.
