"EASY AS 1 2 3"

Distilled. Succinct. Powerful. These three words best describe the super-streamlined new blog 3 Things for Mom.   I discovered this just-launched site a few days ago and it has since become my favorite spot.

Created by a mom for moms, 3 Things shares a daily "truth" (a life lesson, observation or insight), a "tip" (a practical "how-to") and a "find" (a product you tell all your friends about).  Since January 2013, over 30 inspiring and insightful mom bloggers have already shared their 3 Things (like KJ Dell'Antonia of The New York Times Motherlode and Rivka Caroline).

The daily posts are archived and a shopping guide lists all featured products.  I was blown away by the simplicity and poignancy of 3 Things, as well as her personal blog Sipping Lemonade, and contacted Lauren to see if she wouldn't mind sharing a bit more wisdom...

Q: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO CREATE A SECOND BLOG IN ADDITION TO SIPPING LEMONADE?
A: The idea for 3 Things for Mom came from the simple fact that there are so many wonderful mom writers out there - and so little time to read them all.  So I wanted to create a way for readers to enjoy a variety of great mama wisdom, in a way that fits their busy schedules.

Q: WERE YOU SURPRISED YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO FIND SUCH WONDERFUL CONTRIBUTORS EACH WEEK?
A: Yes and no.  I am not surprised that I have found such wonderful contributors because there are so many wise and talented women.  However, I was a bit a surprised at how receptive my contributors have been.  Surprised, humbled - and very happy, of course.

Q: YOUR SITE IS SUCH A WONDERFUL WAY TO START THE DAY.  DO YOU HAVE ANY FAVORITE BLOGS YOU LIKE TO READ?
A: One of my favorite blogs would be Kelle Hampton's, Enjoying the Small Things.  Kelle's daughter, Nella, was born with Down syndrome about a year before my daughter, Kate, was born with Down syndrome and we had very similar experiences.  When a friend shared Kelle's blog with me the night Kate was born, it was a great comfort and I've followed her blog ever since.  Another would be The Pioneer Woman - she's hilarious AND she introduced me to the best chocolate cake recipe ever!

Q: WHAT "TRUTH" DO YOU RELY ON MOST?
A: "Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the action that we do." - Mother Teresa

Thank you Lauren for 3 Things, and many more!
