Francesca's Festa of Favourites: May 2014

Celebrate good times blog posts, come on!

Welcome to the May 2014 edition of
Francesca Writes Here

Are you ready to party?

"Festa" in Italian means a celebration, a party (and, if you look around this blog long enough, you'll see that I'm a fan of throwing Italian words around). This is a place where you can add links to your favourite posts for a given month (this time, it's May 2014), but here's the difference: they don't have to be posts you've written (although they can be). You can link to any post for the month that, for you, has been a must-read, that you're proud of, or that you think is entertaining, written by you or anybody else.

I add some of the posts, from blogs I read regularly, so you might see the same bloggers cropping up over the months. I love being able to use this space to bookmark my favourite blog posts for the month. But, more importantly, I love seeing what everyone else likes reading - it helps me discover new blogs I might not otherwise have seen and it's a great way of sharing the bloggy love. So feel free to link up as many of your favourite posts as you like during the course of the month.

If you've linked a post or had one of your blog posts linked by someone else, why not add the button to your blog and help spread the word :-)

Also, each month I like to choose a post from the previous month's linky party to showcase. I think it's a great way of showing off other bloggers in my own little corner of blogland.


Pick of the April bunch (in my humble opinion)

The April Festa Favourite is:

When Her Heart Stopped Beating {Trigger Warning} by The Multitasking Mummy

The Multitasking Mummy

 April seemed to be quite an emotional month in linky land. There was a bit of reflection by bloggers on where they are in their lives or where their children are in life, as well some deep thinking arising from Easter and ANZAC Day. It is only fitting, then, that last month's Festa Favourite is the most heart-wrenching tear-jerker of them all. I knew from the moment I read this post this it would be the one I would showcase for April. Sadly, so many parents go through miscarriage. Whilst it seems that we are beginning to feel able to open up about it, I applaud Eva for her bravely in opening up about this on her blog so soon afterwards. My hope is that women (and their partners) who go through this always feel supported. Virtual hugs to you, Eva xx

Now, let's get this festa started for Francesca's Festa of Favourites in May 2014. Happy linking!


  1. Thanks for hosting the link-up, Francesca!

  2. I just found this linky via Eva. Will definitely add more during the month as I find them :)


Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment here before you go. I love reading them!
