The day has finally arrived, Blissful Happenings is here!! I am so excited to bring this site to life. After blogging for nearly 4 years, and a few reincarnations, I’m happy to say that I have finally created a site that perfectly encompasses my personality and style! I want this blog to be a place where you can come and laugh, get ideas for dinner, develop your style, and basically just get inspired.

A little bit about me: I grew up in the dirrrrty South in the land of sweet tea, fried foods, and football. I was a band AND theatre nerd during high school, which luckily did not deter a 16 year old Captain. I have a degree in Art History, which I selected as an excuse to study in Egypt. Yep, I studied in Egypt. Since getting married 6 years ago, The Captain and I have lived 7 different homes and 5 different states. Crazy pants! We have two amazing puppies, Hammond and Franklin, who we lovingly refer to as the Danger Twins. Be on the lookout for their soon to be released twitter page. We are currently calling Southern California home, but I have a feeling we aren’t done with the East Coast just yet.

I try to say a prayer at the beginning of each day asking for an adventure and an open mind! I’m of that mindset that everyday should be the best day ever! Here’s to enjoying life and living it to fullest!! Cheesy? Perhaps... Awesome? Definitely. Let’s do this!
