Grace Not Perfection.


Just a little Wednesday morning inspiration to kick start the day.

However, I have a confession. I am a perfectionist. I like things to go exactly how they are supposed to, at the time they are supposed to, at the place they are supposed to. Get the picture? But life is not perfect and neither are we. Road bumps happen daily and life is what we make of these annoying detours to our plan. Sometimes they create more pain and sometimes they create more joy.

But no matter what, grace always remains.

So today, I'm going to strive to hold myself to a standard of grace not perfection.

Finished Product

Classy. Southern. Simple. Fresh.

These were words I used to describe what I wanted my blog design to look like. After much internet browsing and thought, here is the finished product. And I honestly couldn't be happier! What do y'all think?

A new addition to my blog are the social media buttons on the right. Feel free to follow me on Pinterest and Twitter or send me an email...I would love to chat with some of you lovelies.

Anyways, life has been busy lately. Got home yesterday from a work trip to Chicago, where I was able to explore downtown for the first time. Stay tuned for a recap coming tomorrow!

I'm always looking for new topics to write about, so if you have any ideas, let me know.

What's Behind a Name?

Okay, I know. It happened. Again. I slacked at posting. But it was for good reason, I promise. This sweet blog of mine is getting a makeover.

First up is a new name. After much thought, this 'Little Miss' is becoming 'Southern Grace'. The new title completely sums up what I strive to be each day - southern and graceful. Being raised in the South is something that I wouldn't trade for anything and the older I get, the more I realize that I do indeed love it so very much. And then there's grace. When I was little my Mom would call me 'Gracie' because I would trip and run into things all the time {hint the lack of grace}. Thankfully I've gotten a tad bit better at watching where I'm going! But in all seriousness, grace is something that we receive but do not deserve. Each day God extends grace to every one and when the going gets tough, I try to remind myself of this grace. The good Lord knows that there are plenty of moments in each day that I need grace so shouldn't I extend it to others? 

Next is the redesign process. I'm currently working with Emily over at Designer Blogs to get a new look. I saw a preview this afternoon and it got me all excited. It's simple and clean...just like I wanted. Can't wait for y'all to see it! Fingers crossed it will be up by the end of the week. 

How did you lovelies come up with your blog title?
