allow me to introduce myself....

My name is Denise.
I'm 27 and married to my best friend.
I am mama to a darling baby girl - Georgia and a sweet baby pup Sevilla.
I love Jesus.  A lot.
I love baking cookies and dancing around my kitchen - especially on Sundays.
I speak decent Spanish but am dying to learn French.
I am the most passionate backseat driver - just ask my hubby.
I have an addiction to buying gorgeous, extremely tall shoes, but always opt for my sandals when going out.
I'm often caught singing in my car to any form of country music.
I feel prettiest in a summer dress with pink nails.
Oh, and I find inspiration in all of the little things . . . which is precisely what this blog is all about.
This blog will be ever-changing just like me and my life. I will focus on things
that inspire me and things of which I am grateful.
In this fast-paced, always on-the-go, running-late world of mine - this blog is my (and hopefully your) breath of fresh air.

So take a deep breath and stay awhile . . .

Since you're here, meet my family :)

I found your blog from Suzels Says!
I want to visit Wilmington so bad. I'm obsessed with the show One Tree Hill and I want to go and find all the filming locations. I'm lame I know.
Anyway, I'm glad I found your blog.

Your blog truly is inspirational.
Also, I LOVE how many blogs I find and in the about me section there are things like 'I love Jesus. A lot.' It's encouraging :)
I am going to be a regular here from now on.

Hi, Denise! I am a NC blogger too from Charlotte now but have lived all over the state, and I am also pretty crazy about Jesus! :-) Your love story was just the sweetest, and I look forward to reading more about your fairytale. My husband also went to NC State so we are raising little Wolfpack fans here. Haha! I found you on the Owl's Den NC Bloggers list. I am attempting to find a way that more of us can connect and share our stories about our great state, and I put together this blog for us to use to link up our posts each month to share happenings in our state. I would love it if you and any of your NC blog friends would join in. Thanks for sharing, NC friend!
