Getting to know me.

Hello!!! Welcome to my little blog - That Beloved Life! 
I have a passionate adoration for the Lord.  I am a self-proclaimed romantic. I always try to find the beauty  in life. I have been completely blessed with two amazing little boys - SethJason and JaydenMichael. I love my tea sweet but I am California raised. I think I laugh TOO much, which is what happens when you have joy (joy joy joy) down in your heart. I am a relationalist and a textaholic. (I don't think those are words.. oh well)
I love to blog about things that inspire me and captivate my attention. I am on this journey as a newly single mommy and discovering more and more of who I am.
My heart is to always give God glory, to learn and grow, and to hopefully inspire and be inspired. 

Sometimes I will write about serious things, other times I ramble about nonsense.
I try give you a glimpse our beautifully blessed family

I hope that you enjoy it and it gives you smiles. (:
