Fashion and Beauty are a state of mind...

Oh Give Thanks!

Wow One year FBFF Anniversary!  Congratulations is in order.  Katy Rose from started this wonderful fashion blogging community and it is flourishing abundantly.  I joined the group by seeing KatyRose on LinkedIn, asking if anyone wanted to join Friend  Friday and the rest is history.  I have had a wonderful time and meeting some great people.  The group is a great community and is a great resource of information.

1.  When it comes to me personally:

-I get such a firm foundation in my faith in my Lord and Savior. I have to mention my faith because without it I would be lost. Having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ strengthens me and every part of my life and I am so elated about knowing that deep inside.

My husband: What can say! He’s my best friend and I love him with all my heart. He pushes me to be the best. Constantly tells me I am beautiful when I’m totally too hard on myself. Honey if you are reading this I appreciate you so much and God truly gave me a gift when he gave me you. Love ya!

– I owe a lot of who I am to my parents. My Mother and Father did everything in their power to give me a good life and upbringing and was always there for me so that unconditional love is priceless.

-My husband asked me to please reconsider to show my face on my blog.   I didn’t want my face shown.  I am not a model and my cheek bones aren’t chiseled.  He said, I want you to post all of you so through hesitancy I did it any way.  I can say I am not fully comfortable even after two years, but it’s getting better.  Thanks for helping me push out the lack of self-worth out the window.

2. When it comes to me professionally – I owe a lot of who I am to:
My mother because she always pushed me to be the best, she never let me settle.  My Mother told me in grade school that I would be going to college and instilled in me that with hard work you can pursue your dreams.  I use to think that when I was a child that it was tough because while the other kids were playing I was studying.  I’m so thankful to them for putting that work ethic in me because it has helped me so much. My parents are with the Lord; but they are in my heart forever.

3. When it comes to the art of blogging, I’m grateful to these people for helping me through some rough spots trying to figure out blogville:

Bella from Citizen Rosebud: If there’s something that can make my blog better, Bella will tell me what I can do or what I need to fix. I appreciate that so much because she’s another fantastic person that’s great about having a community. Plus she is amazing with mixing patterns and prints, gifted.

Beautifully Invisible: When she moved to WordPress her tutorials helped me so much. Even though I moved from to WordPress self-hosted, I used a lot of her tips. Great Resource!

Vahni of Grit and Glamour:  She has such a wealth of knowledge on her blog and she’s fabulous with her outfit posts as well.  She is an all-around, great person who shares what she has learned and will show you what mistakes that you do not need to make so I am grateful.

Charee Lynee
She is full of encouragement and I really value that about her. All around fashion fierceness with a lot of charm.
Awesome shoes!

Michelle of Radiant Skin:
She’s straight with you and will not cut corners.  I love a person who tells it like it is and doesn’t hold back and that’s Michelle.  She’s a wonderful person who is grounded in her faith. Her skincare advice is really on point and her tutorials are excellent.

4. One blogging challenge I’m grateful happened because it made me
stronger was really pursuing the love of community involvement.  Not merely seeking followers but blog friends.  Have a percentage of people following me with no connection is no fun to me.  I am meeting so many fabulous people that if I didn’t really attempt to read a blog or comment there would of never been a chance to develop a connection.  Connection is so important in the blog world because it creates a bond. When we help each other and comment on each other blogs we are giving gifts of encouragement to each other so I am striving this year to comment more than ever.

I want to thank all my readers and followers.  I appreciate each and everyone of you.  You are so special and I am honored that you would take the time to stop by Bubbling with Elegance Grace.

Smooches to ya!

    There are so many helpful bloggers out there, I think that’s what draws me to blogging. I truly liked what your husband said, I always enjoy seeing who it is I’m talking to but I have to admit it is a little intimidating to see so many young beautiful faces out there – do all bloggers look like that? – not me, not this one LOL. I found your blog on Yankee Texan Mom and am now your newest GFC and Twitter follower : D Hope you can stop by and visit me at my newbie blog WynnieBee : D

    “Have a percentage of people following me with no connection is no fun to me. I am meeting so many fabulous people that if I didn’t really attempt to read a blog or comment there would of never been a chance to develop a connection. ” What a wonderful way to put it, JT, and I couldn’t agree with the sentiment more!

    And I am so honored to have you mention me, THANK YOU!!!

    • JTWisdom

      Thanks Bella!

      I meant every word of what I said, glad you agree.

      Thank you!
      My hubby is always looking out for me and that such a wonderful characteristic that he has.

      Thank you for following me.

  • Sabina@Slipstitches and More

    Oh I am so happy you stopped by (thank you)! I can so relate to this post in so many ways, one way in particular is the part about having great parents. I love your blog it is so sincere and a breath of fresh air, I have added it to my blog roll and you will hear from me often.

    • JTWisdom

      Hi Sabina,
      You touch my heart saying that my blog is a breath of fresh air. I am so glad I found your blog.
      Thank you so much for including me on your blog roll.

  • Michelle

    No, I can’t believe this. You not wanting to show your pretty face? you’ve got to be kidding me. So what if you don’t have chissled cheekbones or whatever you want to call it. Most people don’t look like the models on magazines anyway. But guess what? Even the models on magazines don’t look like that! They are all made up…LOTS.

    I love this dress. Now, I definitely don’t like showing my body in pics because I have a muffin top to slay! lol

    Lastly, thank you so much for listing me under the bloggers you like. I’m still feeling my way around too :-)

    • JTWisdom

      Yep I felt that way but not anymore. You are so right there is so much air brushing going on in those magazines it’s really amazing.
      Muffin top is a food and for people to apply it to a body part does not sound positive to me.

      As I said your blog is really cool!

      • Michelle Howard

        Yep you’re right but guess what? that’s the problem. Food! Well my lack of control when it comes to foods like muffins.

        I’m bound and determined though to lose these 40 pounds that have me uncomfortable. Thanks for reminding me that I need to keep my words in check.

        By the way, I added you to the radiant skin challenge. You just have to click the link in the email to confirm and you’ll receive the first message.
