With Style and a Little Grace: Getting to know me

Getting to know me

Hi y'all! I decided since we have a few new faces around the blog I would do a little post to introduce myself to everyone.  So a little background on me :)

Hi friends I am Gracie, the founder of this little blog. I'm a 28 year old newlywed. I started my blog the summer of 2012 a few months after my husband and I got engaged. I was just learning about the world of blogging and there were several blogs that I was enjoying so much that I thought it would be a great time to start my own. 

What better way to document our trip down the aisle and be able to look back at all the fun times later. Little did I know it would become one of my favorite things to do and really bring me back to my creative roots. It is my little slice of the internet to document all the things that I love!

I am married to my favorite person in the whole wide world Henry "Hank". We got married in June 2013, can't believe it has already been 8 months, still newlyweds :) . We live in Mobile, Alabama. 

We have one fur-baby Charlie "monster" He just turned 3 years old in January and we spoil him completely rotten

Isn't he handsome? 

I graduated from the University of Alabama in 2009 with a bachelors degree in broadcast journalism and a minor in english. Henry coaches freshman football and is finishing up school at the University of South Alabama here in Mobile. 

I grew up in the tiny little town of Athens, Alabama which is in the northern part of the state. We were a dry county until I was 18 and we had a drive-in movie theatre. It was a really wonderful place to grow up. You could walk everywhere and everyone knew you and your family. From my house I could walk to my elementary, middle, and high school.

I love my sweet family and don't get to see them that often because they all live about 5 or more hours away. I am hoping eventually they will all retire to the beach once Henry and I start popping out babies. ;)

I met Henry my freshman year at Alabama and for the next 4 years we kept running into each other through all of our mutual friends. We started dating my last year at Alabama and were inseperable after that. We have been together nearly 6 years now and I am so beyond blessed to have him in my life. He is one of the most loyal and caring people I know. I have met my match and I look forward to spending our lives together. 

This blog is a mix of fashion, lifestyle, food, interior design, and beauty. All the things that interest me.  I hope to add new things everyday and just keep growing.
Thanks for stopping by,
