For the Love Of #Cbias #LuvSoFab

There are many loves in my life. My son, my husband, my family and friends. But one I never thought I could say is my place of work. I can't really even call it work I love it so much! The community of bloggers I belong to at Collective Bias / Social Fabric is like none other I would even think could exists  The women and men there are the kindest, most helpful and happy people you will ever meet. Being a part of Collective Bias has changed my life in ways I did not think were possible.

The two woman that invited me into Collective Bias I hold near and dear to me as friends that were a part of that change. The woman I have met since being there have changed my life for the better as well. I consider them all friends that I would help any time they need it. Some have helped me in my life outside of the blog world that has moved me to tears since without her help I have no clue where I would be ( THANKS Christy your sparkles of joy changed my existence!) The woman I have taken into Collective Bias with me are just as special too. I have had the honor of being able to bring my Mom with me into Collective Bias. She rocks her campaigns and I am so proud of her. Collective Bias has made us closer as Mom and daughter. We are able to talk about blog work, share laughs about things and grow as writers  and photographers together. I have also just seen a great friend enter Collective Bias and how it has changed her life for the better. Collective Bias is not a place of co-workers and friends but we are one big happy family!!

I have been able to experience things in my life that are amazing since being a part of the community.

My son and I met the Chef and TV star Jeff Mauro this summer at the Seattle's Best Coffee Competition.

We met local teachers and community program directors for donations to local charities  We have always donated but it was to a drop box. To be able to go into my own town and in person see the change my donation makes is amazing. Through Collective Bias I have learned yes indeed one person can make a positive difference in the world!

Donating Books for the Nickelodeon Book Drive to Roseville Home Start Program

Donating School Supplies to a local Elementary teacher for the Elmer's  Bag It Forward

Collective Bias has helped me see I have so much potential as a person and that there is extraordinary in the simplest everyday things. How awesome is that!!!

Collective Bias I say to you Happy Valentine's Day your are one of my LOVES!! xoxoxo

It is so awesome that you and your mom can work together and grow your blogs. It's difficult to not have that in-person family support, but with the SoFab online family, it makes it worthwhile!
