For perhaps the first time, this post is not about me - well, not really about me and is probably the longest to date. One of my absolute favorite things is my name, Kelly. When I was little it was Kelly-elly and while nobody says that anymore I do not have a shortage of nicknames between friends and close family. I believe in the adage, the more nicknames you have, the more you are loved!
Growing up I really wished my name was Samantha like my American Girl doll and when I asked my mom why she picked my name I got a great response - she wanted a pretty name that could not get shortened to a nickname (i.e. Samantha > Sam, Catherine > Katie, ect.). And the fact that it was Irish probably didn't hurt either.
While Kelly is a fairly popular name I still get excited when other people comment on my blog with the same name. I never really thought twice about it until Rachel from Life Unsweetened did this great post about Rachel's. She graciously okayed for me to replicate her idea so here it is with my own twist - five amazing Kelly's that I have come across in the blogosphere! I have included a quick blurb about them and then a photo. When you check out their blogs I know you will like them as much as I do!
