Love the Here and Now is one of the most beautiful blogs on the internet. Anne has become a friend and her site is one of the first on my daily reading list. She consistently provides fantastic blogging tips in her Blogging Basics series and never fails to inspire. I’ve been honored to have Anne as a sponsor for the month of October and today I am excited to introduce you to her. After getting to know her, you will soon understand why there is so much to love.
How does your work differ from others?
The beauty of a lifestyle blog is that it is constantly changing and evolving as we do. I share snippets of my life and experiences which definitely are unique to me. I am also a huge fan of sharing blogging tips and tutorials because I have found that with blogging there is so much to learn. Why not pass along that information and make someone else’s blogging journey a bit easier as they learn to navigate the ropes?
What three words describe you?
Curious: I enjoy learning new things!
Sarcastic: It’s second nature to me; not the mean sarcasm though. Nobody needs that in their lives!
Loyal: I subscribe to the notion of quality over quantity. If we are friends then I have your back. Friends are the family we choose so I love nurturing friendships.
What three words describe your blog?
Real: You’ll get the good, the bad, and the ugly here. I like to keep things real and relatable.
Soothing: I have tried to create space that I enjoy and take comfort in so I hope that others enjoy their visit to my bog as well.

What goals or dreams do you have for yourself and your blog in the next year?
My goal for myself is simple. I want to learn to love myself as I am. I want to feel confident and feel positive. I felt like I let myself go a bit as I feel pulled in so many directions as a full time working mom, wife, and blogger. I have taken control and have made some wonderful lifestyle changes and I am slowly learning to love the skin I am in again and it feels great.
As for my blog, I want to continue to share my love of blogging with others yet continue to balance that with the everyday life stories. I want to continue to grow yet return to the basics of why I started. Finding that balance and maintaining it are definite goals for me.
