One day I was having a self love day. A day alone to spoil myself and do what makes me happy. At some point during that day I was browsing the shelves of Barnes and Noble looking through all the books. I had no intentions to buy anything, it was enough to just walk through the shelves with the fresh smell of books and the quiet store surrounding me. I made my way over to the magazine shelf and somehow a Bella Grace magazine jumped out at me. It was like it was the only thing I saw even though I had never seen one before. I picked it off the shelf and leafed through the pages. The photographs drew me in and I read a few titles. I knew I needed to have it. As soon as I bought it I couldn’t wait to get home and read it. I made some afternoon tea, pushed my white lace curtains aside to allow the sun to fully shine into my room and crawled into bed. There with my tea and my very first Bella Grace magazine the time began to slip away from me. It may have been 2 or even 3 hours before I finished it. I loved every article. It was filled with so much inspiration and happiness and what I felt like was a whole new world of people that felt like I did and wanted to live their lives like I did. So much beauty and beautiful thought crammed into a magazine and I was in love. Now Bella Grace has become my go to reminder of how I want to live my live and I am so thankful for that. You guys are awesome!
