Blog-tember Challenge - DAY 22

Today is day #22 of the Blog-tember Challenge over at Brave Love blog.  Today's prompt is: Introduce us to 5 Blogs you read and tell us why .  There are always a few blogs that I check every single day to see if they have anything new.  Here are my top 5 (in no particular order)

Grateful Heart linkup w/ Ember Grey
Emily is probably one of the sweetest bloggers you will ever meet!  She has the greatest heart and positive attitude.  She hosts a weekly link-up called Grateful Heart.  Basically every Monday you can link up and share what you are grateful about this week.  It's definitely a great new way to think about Monday for me, since I always hated Mondays.  Instead of going into a week being grumpy, you get to start it out thinking about the things you are grateful for.  Isn't that a great concept?!  She also shares really hilarious conversations between her and her husband.  Seriously, so funny!

Jade & Oak
Jackie is a Pittsburgher like me, who blogs a lot about her amazingly cute pugs, her life and home design.  She is a new home owner and shares so many great decor ideas.  She also shares a lot of blogging tips, which I really appreciate because I am still fairly new at this whole blogging life.

The Grits Blog
Ashley's blog is the first blog that I ever sponsored and she was so helpful and great with me.  She is also a huge sweetheart that blogs about what's going on in her life, her cute puppies, really helpful blog tips, and even hair tutorials.  Seriously, what's not to love!

Rachael is a free-spirited artist that blogs about her life, her adorable animals, her art, and shares her fashion.  She was one of the very first bloggers that I started following, and probably what made me decide to start blogging myself.  She has such a different style of art and focuses a lot on nature around her.  She is also designing her very own tarot deck right now and has even done the art for a book!  How cool is that?!

Exploring My Style
Exploring my Style
Lauren is a super down to earth fashion blogger that I LOVE getting outfit ideas from.  She will show you a dozen different ways to style one skirt,  how/what to pack for a trip (I always feel so lost when I try), and shares her thrifting adventures.

Do you follow any of the same blogs?  What ones are your favorites?  I would love to check them out!
