About Prime Life Pretty
I was born in South Carolina and am enjoying life with the man who has supported me and all of my crazy ideas. We are the blessed parents of two beautiful, smart and talented girls. Both of whom are young adults finding their way in this ever-changing world.
This blog started out as a hobby back in May of 2016 during my eight years of living in Japan. As time went on, I fell in love with all things blogging. I would work on my website while on lunch breaks at work and during any spare time I could find. Inspired by other bloggers on the web, I decided to take my hobby to the next level. This is my passion and I love every minute of it.
Some of the things I love include laughter, Mexican food, travel, makeup, skin care, black and white photography, places books live, essential oils, and cartoons. I’m a very curious person by nature. I like to learn how things work and find out why people act the way they do. I’m also a serial introvert and very much value my alone time.
I strive daily to be authentic and intentional–it’s a lifelong process. Seeing other women thrive through it all brings me joy because this journey can be hard. I consider myself to be optimistic most of the time, but I also know the reality is, sometimes life sucks. Some people are mean and things don’t always work out the way we think they should. Also, pieces don’t automatically begin to fall into place just because we’ve made it out of our 30s.
Life is a path full of twists, turns, and potholes. At times we may even feel as if we are going backward. Just remember that it’s all about what you make it. And the people who expect you to be perfect are not your people. Live life and be pretty the best way you know how. Time is precious because life is short. Remember, we only get to do this once.
Prime Life Pretty is meant to be light, relatable and informative. My hope is that you’ll find a thing or two here that will add some value to your everyday life. I appreciate your presence and thank you for reading.
People may call what happens at midlife ‘a crisis,’ but it’s not. It’s an unraveling – a time when you feel a desperate pull to live the life you want to live, not the one you’re ‘supposed’ to live. The unraveling is a time when you are challenged by the universe to let go of who you think you are supposed to be and to embrace who you are.
