Independence Day Featured Blogger: Nicole of Bless Their Hearts Mom

“Bless her/his heart” is a saying that Nicole Henke has heard all her life from her Mom and her Southern relatives. Inspired by this saying, her blog, Bless Their Hearts Mom, talks about a wide range of topics such as parenting, photography, reviews, crafting, food, pets, Louisiana activities, and single motherhood. A lot like the cooking practice- a little of this and a little of that -the generous mixture of topics makes the blog better than following a set recipe.
