I guess I’m a “Blogger”?  Is the requirement that you have a blog and you post to it? If there are more requirements, I might fall out of the category and lose my title.  So, here’s hoping 😉

As much as I consider myself a Blogger, I think I probably consider myself more of a “Bloggee”.  This may be my own invented definition, but to me a Bloggee is someone who LOVES reading others’ blogs.

These days, I am obsessed with reading my go-to blogs, as well as discovering new ones.  That moment when you stumble upon a fascinating new blog…EEK!  That excitement is hard to beat!

There are so many talented writers out there; so many gifted  photographers; so many creative teachers; so many fantastic foodies.  There is so much to take in and I wish, I WISH I had more minutes in the day to absorb every last post!

Lately, my limited “Me Time” has consisted of blogging, and bloggee’ing.  With the busyness that comes with being at home with a toddler, I truly cherish my down time with some of my favourite blogs. My blogger/bloggee ritual is one I look forward to with great anticipation after a tiring (yet rewarding) day with Portia.

I sit.  I sip a glass of wine or steamy hot tea.  I research.  I read.  I relate.  I write.  I connect.

Thank you to everyone who continues to inspire me with your words, your images, your ideas and your recipes! :)

Nice to meet you! I'm Jessica a.k.a North Shore Mama. This site was born out of my love for my daughters and the desire to share my motherhood journey with fellow moms. I believe we're all in this craziness called 'parenthood' together and North Shore Mama is my way of reaching out to anyone who needs a laugh, a cry or dinner inspiration. Thank you so much for reading!

    My go to blogs are mostly local. I love Mama in the City, See Theo Run, Lilahability, Janice’s Mash up, Fashion Forward Forty, Wave the Stick.
    Not local, but I also love Enjoying the Small Things by Kelle Hampton.

    I get a little thrill when my favourite blogs pop up with a new post in my google reader.

    I couldn’t help laughing when I read this because I found your blog through the Vancouver Mom list and have literally fallen through the rabbit hole of local blogs! I have spent the whole evening checking out blogs. Glad to have found yours and excited to add it to my reader.
