Military Monday – Mother’s Day Edition

Welcome to the Military Monday blogger link-up for May 9!

If you are a mom or have a living mom or grandmother, I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating motherhood this past Sunday! I am looking forward to bringing a third little one into this world, hopefully sometime this month.

So, I am pre-scheduling the carnival and guest posts throughout this month and would LOVE if you would help spread the word on your blogs, twitter, and facebook and also help support one another by reading and commenting on each other’s posts.

If you have a moment, I would appreciate a vote as one of the Top 25 Military Family Blogs. You are able to vote daily AND you can vote for multiple blogs–so please vote for all of your favorites! For the list up as of now, I recommend Army Wives’ Lives (of course ;), Army Wife 101, Mrs. Mama Hen, Household 6 Diva, and Military Duty Stations. Are you nominated? Let me know so I can vote for you, too!

And if you have a guest post to offer, My e-mail is candace [at] armywiveslives [dot] com. Guest posts should be from military spouses and should be primarily non-commercial in nature. You’ll have a signature where you can add your blog(s) and/or website(s). Please let me know!

Here are a few posts I would like to highlight from last week’s linky. If you haven’t already, you might want to check them out and maybe leave a comment if something interests you!

Thoughts about Osama bin Laden’s death have been popping up on lots of military family blogs:

What do you think? Blow for freedom? Changes nothing? May spark a backlash?

The linky is up ALL WEEK! So, stop by anytime!

Having trouble adding your link? Add a comment or tweet @ArmyWivesLives and I will add it for you!
