Our fabulous Apron Goddess for today is Trish at The Kobialka Family and at Trish's Garden. Here she is showing off one of her favorites that she got at a Christmas Apron Swap.
From reading one of her most recent posts on being a winner, I have learned that Trish is quite the apron ADDICT, and or maybe even an apron-a-holic. And she has won a great apron recently which is just adorable, so her personal apron collection is rapidly growing.
Nothing wrong with that if I do say so myself!
And this photos shows another cobbler style apron in front of the tree with a pretty little girl giving hugs! So it appears that Santa and his helpers were good to Trish during the holidays.
At her blog, The Kobialka Family, you may read about serious issues like loneliness, which we all feel at one time or another. Trish has asked readers to think and/or write about their experiences with loneliness in which ever angle that it occurs to them peronally.
I can't say that I have not felt isolated and on an island populated by dirty faced kids on many occasions. Being with my kids is wonderful, but sometimes I feel like the only other adult I speak to is the clerk at the grocery store or some other total stranger. I love my children, but as a mom, caretaker, household organizer, cook and every thing else, it makes me feel like I am alone and unappreciated on occasion. So, even when surrounded by constant frenzied activity with my family, I have felt I was alone and without support or recognition. I don't think husbands truly recognize what it is like to be at home with kids 24-7 and the loss of freedom that being a SAHM results in.
But surprisingly, writing about aprons and things on my other blog has made this feeling dissipate in amazing ways. I guess that is the power of expression in this format. You can get feedback from peers and document your experiences all at the same time.
I think you should head over to Trish's site and check it out. She has interesting things for you too.
