Making My Way Back to You Babes

April 12, 2016

GUYS. My blogging hiatus is nearing a close! Truthfully, I don’t actually know what this looks like, not exactly… only that I will be showing up more and more in this space and look forward to bringing back some fun sponsorship options. (Grateful Heart will eventually make its way back but in what form, I haven’t figured out yet.)

Currently: Hello, It’s Me.

March 7, 2016

Hello? Is this thing on? I have missed you all! I’ve become quite the hermit lately and it’s proven to be so helpful in my time of writing “off the grid.” When I started this blogging hiatus, I didn’t know how long it would last or how I would feel about it one I was in it. I knew it was an important thing to do, as breaks from a routine are often just good for the soul, especially if there’s…

Bigger 2016 grateful heart monday


February 8, 2016

Bigger. That was my word for 2016, as most of you regular Ember Grey readers already know 😉 I realize that’s not new information but it was the only way I could think of starting this post… my word this year has already had a pretty big impact on me. Some of you may have noticed a slight shift and change in this space for the last few months or so and it’s one of those shifts and changes where I’m not…
