Mom Spotlight – Suzanne
Fridays are the day where Chasing Supermom takes some time to shine the spotlight on another great mom floating through the blogosphere, and allow all of you to get to know them just a bit better! I love learning from other women…seeing how they organize their day..their time…the things that make them smile…that get them through their day..Well, today’s featured mother, Suzanne, is the blogger behind http://delightfullyorganized.blogspot.com
From reading her blog, I can tell she and I would be awesome friends had we the chance to meet in real life! This lady has a lot to share, and I hope you’ll check out her blog and leave her some love. I hope you’ll consider allowing me to spotlight you as well! I will be changing up the format of the Mom Spotlight in a few weeks…some exciting changes are coming!
For now, sit back, take a second to relax, grab a nice iced tea or mocha and get to know a new friend! Meet Suzanne!
