you probably don't know about this blog but you should

So there are a lot of really awesome, really popular blogs out there. We all know that. 
But there are also some totally tubular (yeah, I went there) blogs that don't get near enough play. 

I'm going to share one of those blogs with you. 
And you're welcome. In advance. 

Meet Ellen of elle keeps moving
First, you should know that Ellen and I are bloggy friends and neighbor friends. As in I got to hang out with her at the park this morning for play group. (Yes I am the only woman sans-child at play group, thankyouverymuch.) 

But back to Ellen. 

Not only is she a bomb-rockin babe who can pull off high-waisted jeans like it aint no thang, but she's also a great writer. Every time she writes a new post, I skip merrily over to my couch so I can get comfy and cuddle up with some good readin'. Her posts are inspiring, honest, and hilarious. And even though I don't have my own little cryings, I always feel like I can somehow weirdly relate to her thoughts on being a mommy. And that makes me happy. 

If you're the kind of person who loves good style blogs, look no further, my friends. I've recently decided that Ellen's daughter, Lucy, should probably be my style icon. I seriously want everything she wears, accessories included. But here's the thing: Ellen makes almost all of Lucy's clothes. She just whips up the most hip, darling outfits in the morning before play group. Without a pattern. 
Don't even worry about it. 

So I guess that means I want Ellen to make me all new clothes. 
Yup, that's what I want. 

That's what you'll probably want, too. 

While you're there, give her some FOLLOW love, if ya want.
Some blogs just deserve more followers, ya know?
But no pressure. You gotta be true to your bloggy self. That's what I always say. (Or something.)

What's your favorite "undiscovered" blog that should get more air time?

Love it! I love hearing about new blogs. My favorite "undiscovered" blog is "he and i:"
Although right now it's not super exciting because the author is on her honeymoon! But I love seeing her pictures and reading about her adventures with her man. :)

I'll see if I like her and your right about being true to your bloggy self! There are some blogs I just cannot attach all. And then there are some where it's like "I WANNA BE YOUR BFF, BAHHHH" lol xD
