SHINE Blog Hop Number 11

You might be wondering why the SHINE Blog Hop is popping up here at Ruffles and Rain Boots today… It’s because I get the chance to co-host! Jennifer has allowed me to join the fun and introduce you to this party. Click on “Read More” to link up, get recipes, and be inspired! 

If you aren’t familiar with Jennifer at the Deliberate mom, give her a quick visit and get drawn in to her charm. She writes honestly about parenting, her faith, and life’s little oddities and adventures. Oh, and she shared what is now one of my family’s favorite meals – salmon rice. We now call it salmon sushi rice because we add avocado, cucumber and a spicy sauce to make it taste just like a California roll. We have access to great, fresh salmon here and we’ve even tried it with cauliflower “rice” instead of white rice — it is so simple and tasty that I must admit we have it about once a week now. 

Even though it’s new to Ruffles and Rain Boots, last week’s SHINE Blog Hop was the biggest week yet with a 96 posts linking up! Wow! There are so many beautiful, inspiring, and creative posts. It really goes to show what a talented and fabulous blogging community this is. 

Last week, Jennifer launched an eight question survey about the SHINE Blog Hop. She wants to know if the SHINE Blog Hop is meeting the needs of its participants and/or if it could be improved. If you would take a few minutes to answer these questions, she would greatly appreciate it! Please click the picture below to take the survey (survey opens up in a new tab).

Now, before you link up please remember to follow Jennifer on social media!
