Dream. Inspire. Embrace.

this wondrous life

Birthed from the crossroads of pursuing dreams and wanting to live present, This Wondrous Life (TWL) desires to be an open, creative space for anyone who desires more out of life. Whether that is finding freedom to pursue your dreams, uncovering your creativity, or learn the power of living simply and present, This Wondrous Life (TWL) hopes to show through the musings of its Founder, Danae Carson, that pursuing dreams is possible, creativity is not for the elite, and choosing a simpler more present lifestyle is the glue that makes it all stick.


East Coast born and raised, but a West Coast girl at heart, I am the founder of This Wondrous Life, a lifestyle-creative blog, rooted in pursuing a life lived present and intentionally while discovering the dreams within and the beauty of creativity. I passionately believe in seeing dreams come to life in the flow of daily living, finding inspiration in the beauty that’s birthed from creating and living a more simple and full life.

That's what has birthed This Wondrous life (TWL): a safe, creative space for people like you and me to find inspiration, empowerment, and community as we pursue our passions, live creatively and intentionally!
