LifestyleGrace CobbComment

   Hey friends! Its me again! I wanted to continue with more personal posts because they are so fun to write! Today I am coming at y'all with another 12 Things post! My first 12 things did very well and you guys seemed to really enjoy it! Here we go!

  1. I graduate high school in just over a week... and its kind of creeping me out. I feel like I am still 12 (lol) 
  2. I have always wanted to write a book. I actually wrote about 100 pages worth of a novel when I was about 14 but I got angry when I wasn't making progress and deleted it all... 
  3. If I could only eat two foods for the rest of my life it would be watermelon and sweet potatoes!! I roast my sweet potatoes with a little garlic salt and sometimes rosemary and it adds so much flavor! 
  4. I am writing this post while watching Andy Griffith. My dad has all 8 seasons on DVD. I grew up walking in the living room with Andy on the TV. (Giraffes are selfish... if you know, you know) 
  5. Currently I am obsessed with potted plants. (lol) I have butternut squash, lemon thyme, mint and marjoram. It is so fun and I feel like a proud mom when I water them. (hahaha) On Easter, I made a Lemon Tart and I used mint that I grew for garnish. #proudmoment
  6. I made it a goal for 2018 to read more. I haven't been doing so great. Hopefully after graduation I can pick up some books I have started! 
  7. The morning after graduation, I am going to Disney with my mom, best friend and her mom. As I typed that I literally got chills. I haven't been to Disney in six years and I know I am going to die of excitement when wee get there. 
  8. My top three dream travel destinations are: Vik, Iceland -- Vienna, Austria -- South Island of New Zealand 
  9. My favorite bloggers at the moment are: Twist of Lemons, Lee from America and Barefoot Blonde
  10. My favorite smell every is clean laundry. That or Christmas trees! 
  11. I hate avocados and coconut water. I'm kind of a health nut, and I love trying new things but I cannot stand avos or coconut water... although I really like avocados in recipes and I even like guac... the world may never know 
  12. I love photography. My dream job would be a full time photographer for National Geographic. If you've ever seen Secret Life of Walter Mitty (one of the greatest movies of all time) Sean O'Connell is the dream job! 

 

Hope you guys enjoyed! See ya later! 

Vega Creative Collaboration

LifestyleGrace CobbComment

Hey friends! A few weeks ago, SPC had the awesome opportunity to collaborate with a local small business, Vega Creative. Vega Creative is based out of Augusta, Georgia and Anna, the owner, is from Prattville! Anna is so sweet and such a blessing to work with! Anna painted a one of a kind Prattville watercolor map... and let me tell you, it is precious. If you are a Prattville local, shoot me a message and we can schedule a pickup! If you aren't local to Prattville, then head on over to Anna's Etsy store and snap you one! 


Travel Essentials

LifestyleGrace CobbComment

No matter what time of the year it is, traveling is always around the corner. We all know what it feels like to hop on a plane or a jump in the car and realize you've forgotten some major essential... and the slight panic that follows. No worries now, we've got you covered. 


12 Things You Didn't Know About Me

LifestyleGrace Cobb2 Comments

Welp, I'm here on this cold day and as I was sitting down in my kitchen I found a little bit of inspiration inside of me to write a blog post. A funny thing my process of writing blogs posts is the time between when I write it and publish it. It takes a while but this one is coming straight for you! This blog is in no way about me, but I figured it might be fun to know who is behind the computer. Here are 12 things you didn't know about me. 

1D0A8053.jpg
  1. I swam competitively all throughout high school. Granted, I wasn't very good, but I did it. Swimming is literally one of my favorite activities ever. 
  2. I spent the summer in between my junior and senior year of high school in Honduras. I volunteered at a malnutrition clinic and an orphanage but I was mostly working at a day camp for kids, loving on them kiddos. 
  3. Every summer growing up I went to church camp and I loved it so much. 
  4. I love rainy weather especially because I get to wear Wellies!!!!
  5. If I could live in flowy dresses for the rest of my life, I would. 
  6. My top favorite movies are Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, Beauty and the Beast and 7 Brides for 7 Brothers. 
  7. When I was itty bitty, my hair was extremely blonde. 
  8. Since I was little I have always wanted to work at Disney World. (Ideally as a Belle, but beggars can't be choosers). 
  9. I really enjoy show tunes.
  10. The order in which I like chocolate from least to greatest is milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. (Don't get me wrong I love ALL chocolate). 
  11. To this day I still have a massive collection of Junie B. Jones books on my bookshelf. 
  12. Christmastime is my favorite time ever. (You definitely already knew this one). 

Hope you enjoyed! 

How to Write the Perfect Thank You Letter

Lifestyle, HolidayGrace Cobb1 Comment

Dear Friend... Thanks from the bottom of my heart for your gift. It’s such a beautiful candle. Honestly, it’s the prettiest candle I’ve laid my eyes on. The way it just sits there on my kitchen counter, showing the world its beauty. I cannot wait to light it up and fill my house with the smell of pumpkin pie. Every time I light it up, I will think of you. You and that candle are one and the same. If only my words could express my true and honest gratitude… Hope to see you soon.

Sincerely,

Your Long Lost Friend...
