Friday Favorites from Collage of Life, Gwen Moss, Kimberly Taylor Images and More

Good morning! It's Friday and I could not be happier. My husband has been traveling all week and arrives home tonight, I cannot wait to sit with a glass of wine and fill each other in on our weeks activities. Not to mention that it seems as if this week has been so  l-o-n-g. I only hope the weekend will feel just as long, only without all of the work.

Many that read blogs are also blog writers. I personally am always fascinated by the story behind blog and this week Jeanne at Collage of Life has written a beautiful post about how, why, when she started her blog. If you are not familiar with Jeanne, she is an incredibly talented writer and an ex-pat who has lived in Australia, New Zealand, England, the USA and Vietnam. Her blogs are filled with adventures, beautiful photography and of course writing. 

This Sunday is Mother's Day and Leslie at Gwen Moss featured the perfect gift for moms this week on her blog. I cannot wait to do it for mom own mother!

It is no secret that I LOVE France and I love to see it from the eyes of other bloggers. This week on Kimberly Taylor Images you can see Kimberly's stunning photos from Two Weeks in France.

I know that I am not the only Pinterest addict and after spending a few productive hours on Pinterst this week I discovered this recipe for David Lebovitz Chocolate Cake on Veronica's Cornucopia. I would love to make this this weekend!

Are you a fan of the blog Advanced Style? If so, check out this article about the new documentary Ari Seth Cohen made featuring beautiful stylish women in their 70', 80's and 90's! I have never looked as good as these ladies, I think I might learn a few things from them. 

I hope that you found something new here and as always if you found something fabulous this week, please share it!

Have a wonderful weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day!
