Celebrating my Something About Love 8th Blogiversary!  August 25, 2019 Gratiana Lovelace (Post 1258)

I realized yesterday on August 24, 2019 that it was my 8th Blogiversary of blogging here on my little Something About Love (SAL) blog!

Little could I have known when I started this blog that it would have such a profound impact upon me—nor that I would still be doing it 8 years later.  Ha!

That’s the thing about finding an activity and interest that really speaks to your soul.  If you’re lucky and have the support of those you love—like my dear hubby, in my case—you can flourish.

I love writing my love stories—with a certain handsome and talented and very tallBritish bloke named Richard Armitage (below are images from 2019, see filename for credits) as my muse.


And interspersed with publishing each chapter of my stories—I am currently serializing “Expectations” (Book 2), the sequel to “Encouragement” (Book 1)–are my other Richarding essays about his artistic projects, etc., as well as, my musings/observations  about my life.

Oh, and my various wallpaper and other graphics (sampled below) and videos—that I won’t call “art”, but I enjoy doing them.  Ha!

Most wonderful about this blogging journey are the friendships that I have made and continue to make along the way.

And I give a heartfelt  thank you to each of you who have visited, liked, and generally supported my SAL blog over the past eight years! I truly appreciate your kindness and your thoughtfulness!  Onwards and upwards as the saying goes!

So I leave you with a flowery thank you gift of this lovely wallpaper by Cyn Dainty to enjoy.  Hugs & Cheers!  Grati  ;->

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
