Grace Magazine Celebrates One Year Anniversary

Grace Magazine Navigates Blogosphere

Yay! It’s Grace Magazine’s one year anniversary.

A year ago on December 18, I started publishing Grace Magazine with a simple mission statement and a post about champagne cocktails.

Twelve months, 350 posts, and over 166,000 page views later, Grace is still going strong. My goal was to create a place where you can relax and take a little time for yourself. I like to read about beauty, fashion, women, and tips on how to live well. So that is what I try to write.

Thank you, dear readers, for helping me gracefully navigate the blogosphere.

And thank you, WordPress, for a great blog platform.

I have a lot of ideas for the upcoming year, so stay tuned.

I’ve Been Tagged Again. Yay!

Tagged Again

CuriousC tagged me. I’ve done this one before so I’m not going to tag seven people again. But I will write 7 different things than I wrote last time.

Here are the rules (I’m skipping 3 and 4):
1. Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are my 7 things:
1. I’m a Formula 1 fanatic. Yay, Kimi.
2. I collect vintage cocktail glasses and use them quite often.
3. In an alternate universe I drive a 1984 Ferrari 308 GTSi Quattrovalvole.
4. I still have my collection of Nancy Drew books from when I was a kid.
5. When I was little I wanted to be an opera singer.
6. Now that I’m a mature adult I want to be a jewel thief and/or spy and/or film noir femme fatale.
7. Purple is my favorite color.

Feel free to write 7 facts about yourself in the comments section.
