I love blogs. Chances are, if you’re reading this, then you do, too! I guess it’s no surprise that I ended up with FC Moms Blog and part of a national blog network. Not only do I love sharing my thoughts and things I love, I love learning about experiences that bloggers share, which may or may not be similar to my own. I love learning about new places and restaurants to try and products other bloggers love. But seriously, I love blogs, can’t you tell? I love all creativity and can appreciate the hard work that goes into a blog. In order to help connect you to some of my favorites, I’ve rounded up a list of 20 local bloggers (in Fairfield County and Connecticut at large) for your enjoyment. So, without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite local bloggers and the sites they’ve built.


Vineyard Love Knots

Stamford-based blogger, Lindsay, is the mama behind this beautifully-styled site. Her lifestyle blog is the perfect escape to the Vineyard, without actually going. And you’ll love the adorable pics she posts of her sweet, sweet daughter – guaranteed!

This blog is written by my new-found friend, Stef. Creative and motivating, Stef’s site will help you organize any area of your home. Want to make 14 slow-cooker freezer meals in 90 minutes? Want to organize all of those baby product manuals randomly stuffed in your filing cabinet? Stef has got you covered! The cute pics of her sweet baby boy all over her Instagram aren’t too shabby, either.

From day trips to local CT sites and attractions to learning how to host you own pie-baking or painting party, LuCk will help bring out your creative and adventurous side while helping you get out there and meet other moms.

Lemon Stripes

How do I describe how much I love Julia Dzafic, the brains behind Lemon Stripes? I’m not sure there are words. I am also mildly obsessed with her weekly Q & A on Snapchat (Seriously, Julia, if you’re reading this – call me!). Her beautifully styled and inspiring blog focuses on all facets of life – food, decor, fashion, etc. She’s also been open on her blog about her infertility struggles. If you’re looking for your daily dose of pretty, head over to Lemon Stripes.

Happily Eva After

Westporter Eva Amurri Martino is the mama behind Happily Eva After, a lifestyle and motherhood blog. If her pics of her gorgeous house don’t get you, her beautiful children will! Her Snapchat is filled with scenes of her and her family in very local, recognizable places. Eva, if you’re reading this – my mom is Honey to my kids, too! #teamhoney

Pure Joy Home

Stamford-based blogger Liz Joy has created a beautiful site focused on home decor, fashion, and motherhood. Liz shares her passions for those things on her site and has partnered with some local businesses to highlight those passions. I love that Liz isn’t afraid to share the good, the bad, and the ugly with her followers since we all know that motherhood isn’t all rainbows and sprinkles. She keeps it real and I’m so glad she’s let us into her world.
