I’m so excited to have you here to visit my blog! Thank you for stopping by and taking a look, I do hope you enjoy what you see! I have been blogging since the beginning of 2011. My husband was on a long Naval deployment and I had a newborn in my arms. Some days I missed him so much, I was hard pressed to find the beauty in life – but I knew it was there; I knew life was a gift. I began the blog to write about it and capture it. Finding something wonderful in each day and being thankful for the life I have, has made my days fuller and my passion for living a purposeful life grow even more.
Here on the The Best of this Life, I love to write about the things that fill my days with love and beauty – sharing the adventures with my readers and always hoping to hear about the wonderment in their lives as well. I find pleasure in the simple things! I love writing about food, parties, motherhood, natural beauty, amazing products, family life and just about anything that makes me (and you) smile! I’m also a fan of giveaways, so I try my best to find some great ones for my readers 🙂

It’s Christmastime around here, as you may have noticed from all the cookies I’ve been baking!! It’s the one time of the year, where I go a little overboard with baking (and brown sugar). But, a girl’s got to keep busy when she is awaiting the arrival of her baby. I’m on my 41st week of pregnancy and our baby girl, Abigail, might be making her grand entrance on this very day!! All around, it’s an exciting one!
Thanks so much for visiting, I look forward to connecting with each one of you!
