Hello Everyone! So glad to be here today and share a bit about myself and The Best of this Life

I began my blog in February 2011.  I had just given birth to our baby boy in October 2010 and my husband had to leave us for a long deployment with the U.S. Navy.  I wanted a place to write about the good things in my life, despite the heart ache of separation. It helped me see and account for all of the joy that was around me, even though I was away from my soulmate. We endured that year apart and now my sailor is a Veteran and we get to share each day together as a family. My blog continues to highlight the wonderful things that life has to offer and I most often share: recipes (gluten-free), inspiration/mood boards, health tips, family fun, and all things lovely!

Gina asked me to share a favorite August memory and I would definitely have to say it was August 29th, 2008. My husband (then boyfriend), took me to dinner to this adorable little Italian restaurant in the neighborhood of Ghent in Norfolk, VA. That night, there was a live harpist playing and we had the best seats in the house.  We shared a delicious meal over candlelight and talked about our hopes and dreams. Around dessert, he pulled out a small satin box from his pocket and gave it to me. I opened it up and there was a beautiful silver band.  Although we had known each other since I was 15 and him 17, we had only been dating as adults for a few months - I didn't think he was proposing!  He was, but not marriage - partnership. He asked me to be partners through the first deployment we were about to face, partners sharing adventures and hardships together, partners in life.  I accepted! He left for his 2008-2009 deployment that September and in May 2009, upon his return, we got married :)
