So excited to be off to St. Louis today for our first 2012 Bloggy Boot Camp!

And to celebrate, we are featuring a fabulous blogger. We hope you’ll find here as inspiring as we do.

Meet Shannon of MyNewFavoriteDay

{Is that picture gorgeous or what?

My name is Shannon Pruitt and after being in a bit of a self-imposed emotional isolation for about 18 months after the very premature birth of our precious twins Q and E and E’s diagnosis as Special Needs, 12 months ago an ordinary moment in our living room became ‘extra’-ordinary. In that moment, it occurred to me that perhaps sharing our stories of hope and inspiration could help and motivate others going through similar circumstances. So that night, with my nerves on fire, I created my first post for ‘MyNewFavoriteDay,’ and what became immediately clear is that my emotions and feelings were not unique to me or our circumstances, but rather permeated all of your personal experiences through your relationships and situations with parents, conception, siblings, IVF, prematurity, parenting, children, special needs, terminal illness, and everyday stress. As a global community we are all united by common emotions of love, fear, hope, faith, sadness, happiness, strength, and joy and most importantly, we are all doing the best we can, how we can. We all need one another and if we can remember to find the little nuggets of inspiration and motivation we can try to make each day ‘anewfavoriteday.’

    At times, I find people try to separate themselves from others through their differences, however, to your point, even if we are in different circumstances, we are all united by common emotions. Spot on sentiment. Beautiful blog. Happy SITS day!
