Starting Life Bellissima — Living Life Beautifully:

I have always enjoyed writing, and starting a blog became a way for me to share what is near and dear to me — family, faith, organic living/eating. In essence, it is my joy and desire to share with you God’s many blessings! I started my blog nearly a year ago, and I never dreamed what a huge blessing it would be to me! I have met so many wonderful people and many have become very dear friends from all around the world!

A little advice for new bloggers:

If I could give one piece of advice to new bloggers, it would be to write from your heart. Write about what is near and dear to you, and enjoy the creative process!

My nominees:

First of all, I appreciate all of you! It’s very hard to narrow this down to only a handful of bloggers, and I sincerely hope to highlight many more in the future!

Quote of the Day ~ Number One

IMG_20141208_125941[1]

Hello, dear friends! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the week!

I was recently nominated by my beautiful friend, Sadie, at Sadie’s Nest for the three day quote challenge. I thought this sounded like a lot of fun, so I eagerly accepted.

I want to thank Sadie not only for nominating me, but for being the wonderful friend that she is. She brings such love and inspiration to her lovely blog!

The quote I chose for Day One comes from Corrie Ten Boom, author of The Hiding Place. Her book is incredible, and I highly recommend it.

Excerpt from Wikipedia: Cornelia “Corrie” ten Boom (15 April 1892 – 15 April 1983) was a Dutch Christian who, along with her father and other family members, helped many Jews escape the Nazi Holocaust during World War II. She was imprisoned for her actions. Her most famous book, The Hiding Place, describes the ordeal.

Rules for the challenge:

Thank the blogger that nominated you.
Share one new quote on three consecutive days on your blog. They can be from anywhere, anyone, or anything.
On each of the three days, nominate three more bloggers to carry on with the fun! No   pressure; nominees are free to decline.
