Each week we will pick a quote, the quotes we choose are women’s words… get it? That’s What She Said.
The link up will run for 2 weeks this week. Starting February 5th we have the linkup live for 5 days!
We will pin and feature our favorites, the following month.
Each week will provide the next week’s quote.
Please only linkup posts inspired by the quote of the month. We want to see how this quote will get your creative juices flowing.
We would like for you to connect with others, please visit the person who linked up before you and go show some love.
It would be AWESOME if you would share the link up via your social media. #That’sWhatSheSaidLinkUp
Of course, it’s always fun to connect, let’s follow each other along.
We absolutely loved hearing about Karen’s warm holiday memories,
we know you will too.
If there’s any phrase I should have tattooed to my forehead these days, it’s “Don’t stumble over something behind you.” As I head into the New Year, putting 2014 and all its many nightmares behind me is the one resolution I intend to keep. I’d be foolish to say I’m over it and that there is no more hurt to be felt, no more challenges to face, no more stress to overcome, but I’m committed to looking forward to hope, healing and a much more balanced life that is me being me. The one thing I most definitely realized over the past several months is that I haven’t been able to be myself in a very long time. And that’s something I’d like to change.
I will no longer stumble over the fear that comes from wondering what others think of my actions, or how I dress, or what I say, or if I’m cool enough/pretty enough/funny enough/etc. the list goes on and on. I’m looking forward and I’m me. I will no longer stumble over what ifs, whys or if only. I’m looking forward with a “What’s next?” I will no longer punish myself for mistakes I made, cues I missed or moments where I fell short as a wife, mother, friend, woman, daughter, you name it. I’m looking forward with a “You did the best you could with the information that you had. Forgive yourself and be better.”
Progress means learning from the past, not dwelling on it. I can look back now with fresh eyes, remember what happened, and embrace the blessing that is being in a better place today. I know without a shadow of a doubt that I don’t want to go back to what was, even when I think about the good times and the happy moments. So if I’m confident that I’m where I’m supposed to be, there’s no need to stumble or dwell on where I used to be. Each day I put one foot in front of the other and move forward. If I look back, it’s only to see how far I’ve come.
Join us in a few weeks when we kick off the weekly link up with this amazing quote!
WHO IS YOUR MAGIC?
Who’s ready for another week of sharing, networking, and growing your site?
We’re so glad to have each and every one of you joining us each week and can’t wait to connect with you on 2 more social medias this week!
This party is all about building and fostering a community of bloggers that actively support each other in their blogging journeys.
And, as you all know, one of the best ways for bloggers to connect with one another, is through social media.
So the Share ~ Network ~ Grow social media link up was born! We’ll be featuring 2 different social media networks on the link up each week and hope that by focusing on 2 rather than all of them every week, you will have more of a chance to connect and engage with some amazing new bloggers!
Now, let’s get this party started!
This week’s featured social media networks are GOOGLE+ and STUMBLEUPON!
The rules for this link up are very simple! (Seriously, we don’t like a lot of rules either!)
1. Please follow your host and co-hosts! We’d love to connect with all of you!
2. Grab the button if you’d like! Not mandatory at all, but we would sure appreciate it 🙂
3. ENGAGE! No one likes a link and run blogger. If you add your link, try to engage with at least one other blogger.
That’s it! See, told you it was simple!

Think Outside the Toy Box Summer Series: Kool-Aid Sprinkle Art
It’s Monday!! You know what that means…it’s time for another Think Outside the Toy Box Summer Series challenge! This week…Kool-Aid. Last week, I thought I hit the bottom of the barrel as far as low cost, spending less than $6 on an afternoon of family fun with Paper Bag Maracas, but I blew it out of the water this week! Kool-Aid was on sale at Target for $2. I already had the rest of my supplies, so $2 and we were ready to go! Time to get messy and creative with Kool-Aid Sprinkle Art.
