A Little About Myself

Hello blog world! I have been debating on starting up a blog for quite a few years now. There is something completely captivating about having stories and experiences that could affect someone’s life in some small way. So here it goes, my first attempt at making a whole new world of friends. Let me start off by telling you all a little bit about myself. My name is Amber. I am from the absolutely gorgeous state of South Carolina {Let me just say guys, if you have never been to South Carolina you really don’t know what you’re missing out on}. I’m a marvel nerd at heart, a Disney lover to my very core, I enjoy reading books, and I find that there is almost nothing better than spending the day hiking through the mountains, or trying out a new recipe on a Sunday afternoon. Cooking and photography are two big passions within my life. I’m also a makeup and fashion junkie. Another little fact about myself; I adore animals, Especially dogs! My family and friends are the most important things in my life; therefore, I have an addiction to talking about them A LOT {Just thought I would let you in on this not so secret, secret.}. Also, a huge part of my heart belongs to Africa; Rwanda to be exact. So that passion will shine through in this blog.With that being said, I think this could be the start of something great! you will have to excuse my cheesiness. It will happen quit often, I promise.

I have JOY of doing life with some pretty amazing people. I am the oldest of six children {yes you heard me right. Six.} Many people question my mother’s sanity; However, I think she is the most sane person I know. I absolutely adore the chaos of a big family. They are some of the most crazy wonderful people you could ever hope to meet and I absolutely adore each of them. There is nothing greater in my eyes, than having so many people love you no matter what you say or do. It’s comforting.

Some other people who kind of make my life, well, awesome are my close group of friends. Let me start off with “the couple”.
Paige and Cory have quickly become an everlasting addition to my life. I honestly think that God specifically designed them to become two of my dearest friends. Now that I have experienced life with these two, I couldn't imagine it without them. Paige and I are so much alike that it’s straight. up. scary. We can have the greatest time having a girls night out on the town, or sitting on the couch watching Pretty Little Liars. In the ways Paige and I do differ,(which, there aren't many) Cory and I share the same common interests {like totally awesome Superhero movies. Rock on Avengers. Rock on}.

 By the way, this lovely lady happens to be an AMAZING blogger.You can check out her blog here.

Next is my longtime friend Candice. When we were little girls, she and I would fight calmly discuss who was going to be Thumbelina, while sprawled out in her living room floor eating popcorn. Candice is the type of friend you can go thirty years without seeing and feel like you never missed a beat.



Last, but certainly not least, is my best friend/sister Bethany. Bethany has been with me through everything. She and I met at a Homeschooling gathering when I was fourteen. After I finally persuaded her to talk, {Meaning, I talked to her nonstop for two hours, so she had no chance of getting away} we became inseparable. She honestly isn’t even a friend anymore, she is simply family.  

 So that’s a little bit about me! I would love to get the chance to better know all of you. I’m excited about this grand journey we are embarking upon. I’ve got some fantastic posts lined up so, don’t forget to stop back by. Thursday, I’m dishing out scoop on why I chose “Joy Through Life” as my blog name. Until next time, au revoir!
