Hi Friends!

Welcome to EVERYDAY BEAUTIFUL! I created this blog to share my passion for making home a place where everyone wants to be, one small, simple, intentional step at a time.

Two of my favorite quotes are “Home interprets heaven. Home is heaven for beginners” by Charles Henry Parkhurst, and “Everything is grace” by Therese of Lisieux.

Creating a warm, inviting, healthy environment at home can seem like a daunting task amidst the busyness of life – especially for working women and busy moms. Yet I strongly believe a beautiful home and a contented heart is possible for everyone. I’m not talking about a stuffy “house” of Pinterest worthy display, but rather that place of peace, order, beauty, and deliciousness that continually draws hearts like a magnet back to your front door.

In my life, the key to everyday beautiful is finding grace in the mundane, and believing that baby steps, simple solutions, and slow growth make every day more beautiful than the last.

The “little ways” approach – simple grace-filled steps forward – can be applied to home style, family life, health and wellness, fitness, food, beauty and more. It has transformed my heart from a place of exasperated “I’ll never get to where I should be” to contentment and joy in the journey.

Natural wellness is another passion of mine. I have been amazed at the transformation clean eating, clean beauty, clean health products and regular fitness has given my entire family. I’m an advocate for clean, safer beauty with Beauty Counter, and I teach wellness classes for Young Living essential oils. If you have any questions or would like more information on the safer products available from these companies, I’d love to chat.
