Friend Of The Week – Pam


Laughter is good for the soul. Since infusing our days with a little more humor is something we all could use, I’d like to introduce you to Pam – the sassy but friendly blogger behind not one but two blogs (Empty Nest and Grinding My Grits)!

As you might have gathered from her blog title, Pam is a Southern gal who has been living in the low-country area of Charleston, South Carolina for the past 30 years. She’s also an empty-nester who’s in full bloom after raising four lovely daughters (two of whom have returned to her irresistible nest!)

She’s now a new puppy mom and grandmother – an elementary school technology teacher – and a blogger who loves to share her stories on life, love and everything in between!


One of my favorite pieces of Pam’s is Controlling The Pain, where she shares tips that have help her deal with fibromyalgia. For those of you who are unfamiliar with what fibromyalgia feels like, she shared this graphic – which gives you a sense of her style!

Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you make Pam smile by dropping by her blogs, introducing yourself, and congratulating her for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

Now It’s Your Turn To Share!

    This is such a nice event to host. My newest web selfish guilty pleasure is Pinterest. I have had a peek at your boards. You have saved some fabulous things. I hope it is okay if I follow some of your boards? I know my taste will not be entirely yours and vice versa. If that is not okay. You can remove my link to your Pinny Post collection no problem!

    Hi! thanks for hosting such a great link-up! My name is Annie Kaye, and my blog is called The Life and Diary of Annie Kaye
    I chose that name because it combines both my middle name as well as my mom’s, and i like how it sounds. i like to blog about real life; family issues, depression, parenting, eating, etc.
    i like to keep it real and am known for being raw in my writing. my desire is to reach out to other women who have walked a hard road, in hopes of encouraging them and giving them hope.
