Share the Joy linky #20

Share the Joy linky #20

­What will you see with fresh eyes today?

Freshly back from our week away in the South of France – thank you James Villas! – and I’m already missing the sunshine, food and relaxation of Provence. But there was something very special waiting for me here – a fresh perspective. It was SO lovely coming back home for the first time since we moved here and I fell in love with The Barn all over again. And perhaps that is the point of travelling – not always just to arrive but to see things in a new way.

Before I move onto Share the Joy I have to say a special thank you to Aby from You Baby Me Mummy for including Bod for tea as one of her five blogs that will help you blog better over on the Tots100 site while we were away – I’m touched to be included alongside some other fabulous bloggers. If you’ve missed any of my blog improvement posts you can .


Right, on to the link up!

Thank you so much to everyone that joined over the last two weeks – I must apologise for not getting around to all of your fabulous posts yet – I will catch up soon I promise! In the meantime I hope that continuing to share the joy brightens your day too.

Don’t forget that all genres are welcome here – new posts or old favourites. Posts that might have made you laugh out loud, opened your heart, raised your spirits or just made you smile!

Sharing my joy

Each week, I’ll pick a favorite post and feature it on the following week’s Share the Joy link up (I’ve also made a  where you’ll find all my favorites in one place).

Kid Gloves

Las week I loved It’s all About the Dads from Kid Gloves because the photos are SO awesome and it made me chuckle!

This week I’m sharing two fabulous foodie posts from guest authors who I showcased here while we were in Provence – How to Make Riz Au Lait by Mel from Le Coin de Mel and 8 foods you’ve got to try from Provence by Phoebe from Lou Messugo Blog. I defy you not to be hungry when you’ve finished reading them! But I’m also linking up two posts from before we went away – the 6 things I was most looking forward to on our trip and my top tips for creating the ultimate playroom.

Let’s Share the Joy!

1) Link up posts that have brought you JOY – Writing them might have made you laugh out loud, opened your heart, raised your spirits or just made you smile. All genres are welcome, new posts or old favourites and as many links as you like!

2) Link back to me either by including the Share the Joy badge (below) or a text link back to this Share the Joy linky page in your own post.

3) Please comment on one of my posts and a few others. Let’s Share the JOY through commenting as well as through our posts!

Share the Joy will run for a whole week until the following week’s linky is open, so you’ll never be too late. And don’t forget to tweet me the url to your post using the hashtag #sharethejoylinky so I can retweet it.

Feel free to invite your friends to join in – JOY is always better when it’s shared!
