About

TAOLB was born in the Spring of 2014 when 2 Littles under four years and a bad case of mommy fog led me to search for a creative outlet. I hired a web designer and a photographer, and began publishing articles that would hopefully bring back the sense of self I had unconsciously abandoned in favor of raising the two little men with which God had blessed me. My forgotten passions: fashion, cooking and entertaining became the topics of tri-weekly posts, and I tripped forward in my quest to understand the internet, technology, social media, photography and everything else required for success in the digital publishing world. What a crazy time! After three years of sharing my most favorite of favorites, I decided a new, more worthy topic and interface was the future of The Art of Living Beautifully: A digital magazine dedicated to my hometown, McKinney, Texas! As a born and raised McKinneyite (yes, that is the official term) I feel a passion to promote our unique city-village, our businesses, our non-profit organizations and our citizens. Through quarterly magazines and tri-weekly posts, I hope McKinney residents and visitors alike will develop or rediscover a love for our town and local culture. Welcome to The new Art of Living Beautifully, and to some of you, welcome to McKinney!

The Art of Living Beautifully is a blog and digital magazine dedicated to promoting the rich and colorful culture of McKinney, Texas.
