Welcome to All Things Good (ATG)! We’re a mother and daughter blogging team dedicated to revealing the inspiration found in the good and beautiful things of this world. We believe that life should be lived deliberatively, creatively and thoughtfully and strive to share ideas, resources, stories, and opinions that are meaningful, substantial and relevant. We hope you’ll join us on our journey of seeking “All Things Good”!
Read our guiding philosophy in our introductory post, “The Heart and Soul of All Things.”
For all things reflection, journey over to Rose’s Ridge.
For all things culinary, journey over to Around the Table.
For all things travel, journey over to Realms of Gold.
For all things inspiration, journey over to Armour of Light.

Our story begins years ago, while riding a tandem bicycle on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Nearly three years old, I sat on the back seat as my mother, Jennifer, peddled for the two of us (and continued peddling year after year, for the next twenty years, on the exact same tandem).
Since then, our passion for learning, discovery, and travel has led us on many different adventures, including (but not limited to): 10 years of running the annual Tufts 10K race in Boston, ferry rides to Martha’s Vineyard, pedicab rides in New York City, trolley rides in Ogunquit, Maine, bike rides along the New England coast, a two mile climb (under an Italian portico conisting of 666 arches) to the San Luca sanctuary in Bologna, and an unforgettable train ride to Florence during our trip in Italy five years ago.
It is through our experiences and adventures that we—as mother and daughter and true friends—have become inspired to seek “all things good,” not only in our daily lives, but also in the world at large. All Things Good is a product of our desire to live deliberatively, creatively, and thoughtfully with the hope of illuminating all of the good in the world.
