BEST DAY EVER! (Giveaway + Questionnaire)

TODAY MARKS MY ONE YEAR BLOGAVERSARY!!!!!!!

happy harry potter tangled pottermore extremely happy

365 days ago today, I embarked on a journey that changed my life. This journey took time, effort, and several frustrating technological moments, but it also gave me eyes to see the joy, beauty, and grace all around me. For there is so much grace. Grace in everything, I'd say. 

From card making to floral dresses, from training in NYC to starting college, grace surrounds and covers my life, just as it covers your life. It allows us to sit in silence and live in thankfulness. It allows us to laugh and to create, to dance and to cook. This grace is in everything, and in everything may we find grace.

That is my prayer for this little blog. I don't pray for thousands of followers. I don't pray for fame. I pray that God use these words to breathe grace into your life, grace into your everything. 

This couldn't happen without you, though. You, right there, reading this post, thank you. Thank you for every comment, every read, every share, every like, and every time you saw Jesus a bit more clearly because of my words. Thank you for bringing joy and encouragement into my life through your words, which inspire me to no end. Thank you for making the past 365 the most exciting, challenging, wonderful year yet!

And to show my appreciation, I want to present you with a gift. Yes, I am hosting my first giveaway!



After spending awhile trying to find the perfect giveaway for y'all, I found this treasure! Not only is it gorgeous, it embodies the theme of my blog, which is living in grace during the day to day parts of life. I hope that whoever receives this journal will fill it up with authentic, grace-filled moments and lists and drawings and whatever is on your heart and personality! (See my tips on journaling.)

Below is the entry for the giveaway. I've asked you to answer a couple of questions that I will post below, follow along with Grace in Everything, and like the page on Facebook. Of course, I don't want you to do these things just to win a journal, but I know that I oftentimes forget to actually follow my favorite bloggers until I'm entering a giveaway! When the winner is announced on Saturday, March 26, I will email them and then ship the journal directly to their house!

In the process of blogging, I've come across many questions, and I will ask five of them to you. It's about time that I stopped posting blind about these things! I am resolved to continue to innovate, improve, and enjoy blogging, and so I thank you so much in advance for assisting me in this!

    1. Megan, I am SUPER EXCITED to meet you and become blogging buddies. I think that we have a lot in common, plus, I got really hyped up when I saw so many Anne of Green Gables posts on your blog!

      THANK YOU so much for the comment, it helps a lot. Welcome to Grace in Everything!

  7. First off, these Tangled GIFs are just the bomb because Rapunzel just has this happy vibe-- like, it's abnormal to not get happy dance feels after seeing this! ^.^ <---- Multiple the good vibes by 100.

    1. I honestly don't remember specifically how I found your blog; I usually have a knack for discovering new blogs, though.
    2. Bloglovin & the Blogger feed board.
    3. I check either early in the morning or after I finish studying, which is around six at night.
    4. I don't have specific posts that I like (as I generally like them all) although I do like the variety-- some of them are very down-to-earth and serious, while others are like "LOOK AT ALL OF THESE ADORABLE CAT GIFS I FOUND." Okay, maybe you found out which post I like best XDDD Most bloggers in the community tend to make things prettier then they actually are, like someone putting on too much makeup, but with your posts, they're real and relatable.
    5. Just keep being you and being real. I guess more Christian-based and dance posts would be nice, though!

    I wish I could enter that giveaway, but the last time, well, it took a month to convince my parents to let the package be sent, so it isn't the best idea... Good luck to all of those entering, though!

    xoxo Morning

    1. TANGLED IS MY VERY FAVORITE!!!!!!!! *does a happy dance*

      Morning, our words lifted up my heart, as I doubted recently that my posts were balanced enough. Thank you so much for your encouragement!

      And that kinda stinks about your parents, but I understand. It is wise that you pick your battles. Keep following Jesus!

  10. Hi Hannah! I would love to win your giveaway.
    I don't remember how I found your blog. I think it was through another blog. I follow your blog by email. I usually read posts whenever they come to my email if I'm signed up to follow the blogs. I haven't followed for very long, so I'm not sure what my favorite posts are. I would like to see more reviews, giveaways, journaling tips, about your life, etc...
    Have a great day!

  12. Hello Princess Hannah! I found your blog only a few weeks ago, but I'll try my best to answer your questions. =)

    1. I think I was looking around at blogs that other bloggers like. My other friend Hannah had yours on her blog...so I checked it out! And after seeing your "about me" photo and reading how you call yourself a princess because you are a Daughter of the King, I was hooked! And the beautiful colors--pink!! It was the blog for me! =)

    2. I subscribed through email...so that's how I receive notifications for your blog!

    3. I tend to read posts during the evenings when I am less busy with school. The day depends on when you post.

    4. I love how it feels like you are very close to God. I love your posts about your relationship with Jesus and how we can be Princesses too!

    5. More posts about our Christian walk maybe. =)

    I love your blog!!

  13. Hello, Hannah! This giveaway looks really neat. :) I tried to follow your blog, but for some reason, it won't work. I'll try again later, though!

    I found your blog through another blog--I can't remember which one at the moment!

    I subscribe by email, but I also see new updates in my Blogger feed. :)

    I read posts in the early morning, or the afternoon, depending on when they're posted.

    I haven't been reading your blog very long, but I honestly like everything on it!

    And I would love to see anything that you like to post about!

    Wonderful blog! :)
