About Me


Welcome to Discover! Create! Inspire!

Hi, I’m Carmen Alexander Rosales. I’m a writer, blogger, and owner of Discover! Create! Inspire!  After 23 years of raising and homeschooling our 3 children, my husband and I are empty-nesting in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. It’s so beautiful and peaceful here. I hope to bring a little of that to you.

Life can seem so ordinary–even mundane. However, I believe that truth, beauty, and value can be found in our everyday lives. If we pause and listen, learn to see, ask the right questions, we will find it.

I created this blog as a place to share my discoveries, creations, and inspirations.  I hope you will stay connected with me by subscribing to my email updates. Subscribe here! Emails will come to you once a week and we never release your email to spammers!

Please also like or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest with the social media links on the right.

Oh, here are some pictures of my kids.  I knew you’d want to see them. 🙂
