“I believe in magic. Subtle, everyday magic. Each morning before I give myself a chance to to doubt otherwise, I smile knowing that this day is laced with wonders, and it’s my plan to focus on finding them.”
– “Mining Magic” by Suzanne Robbins, Bella Grace Issue 7
When I started working on the Grace Notes Blog Hop in March, I was a beginner to the process. It was my first time coordinating anything like this and truth be told, I was a little nervous. I wanted this blog hop to be just as inspirational as the Bella Grace Blog Hop hosted on Somerset Place. I also wanted to have it be reflective of the kinds of heartfelt narratives found in the pages of Bella Grace, and to showcase the fantastic stories that readers could discover within Grace Notes. In retrospect, I didn’t need to be nervous. There was an indescribable kind of magic in the air that I trusted to guide me. By believing in that magic, I knew this blog hop was going to turn into something very special.
“How utterly vital is it to celebrate the romance in each day. What makes your heart dance? What makes you catch your breath in a surprising gasp? What is there in life that delights and surprises you? What in your life sets a trembling frisson of hope twirling in your soul? Embrace it! Love it! Celebrate it!”
