4th Blogiversary

Today's post is a special one because...
Gracefullee Made turns F-O-U-R today! 

Thank you all for following along with me on my blog. I couldn't have done it without the motivation and support from family, friends, and new blogger gal pals I've met over the years. At times, I've felt like I wasn't good enough to keep going and I have to say, it's been tough. However, I've pushed through the hard times and have been working on trying to be the best person I can be without comparing myself to others. 
I cannot wait to see what's in store for me and my blog in the next years to come. But for now, thanks for always leaving me the sweetest comments and stopping by to read my little space on the Internet. 
All of you readers make blogging worth it :) thanks for believing in me!

P.S. Accessory Jane is graciously offering Gracefullee Made readers a 10% discount towards any of the jewelry on their site! Use discount code: GFM10 at the checkout.

Also, a HUGE thank you to Bliss Tulle for sending me this tulle skirt in time for my blogiversary. I have to admit, I've always wanted a tulle skirt. I was worried about purchasing one online mainly due to the sizing and fit. But this one has an elastic waistband and I'm kind of in love with the flirty and poofy feel that this skirt has to offer. I cannot wait to style it differently this fall + winter!

Thank you to Sweets by Alexandria for the customized cupcake!
The flavor is salted caramel mocha and the mocha buttercream and caramel drizzle seriously melts in your mouth. SO. GOOD. If you're anywhere in the Triangle area here in NC, you have to try her cupcakes!

  2. Congrats on making it to FOUR years of blogging!! That is truly impressive! Before I blogged I didn't understand why bloggers celebrated their blogging anniversaries, but now I definitely do! It truly is a big personal accomplishment to stick it out. Thanks for your candid comments about struggling and working on not comparing. I think that's also something we can all relate to and it's nice to know we're not alone! You look gorgeous in your anniversary outfit and I'll take one of those cupcakes too please. :) ha ha
