Welcome to Those Graces. I’m Courtney Mirenzi and I started this blog in the thick of summer one afternoon. I said to myself, “I’ll stop doing it when it’s not fun anymore.” Three years later, I am more in love with blogging than ever.
This blog is a diary of my life, what I’m thinking, feeling, doing, seeing. I use it as a way to document the world around me. Ever the constant archivist, I use my blog as a way to track my way through life. I write about everything from my obsession with red lipstick to my thoughts on body image to what I think you should wear to a wedding this summer.
My blog started as a place for me to share my budget fashion woes as an AmeriCorps volunteer, but then it evolved into something deeper. Growing up, I was very guarded online and very concerned about my permanent digital footprint. I held back a lot, but over time, I tore down my walls and started talking more about feminism. From thereon out, I decided to be more honest and personal on my blog.
For the past two years, I’ve been part of the Boston blogging community, which is so supportive and friendly. Last year the Boston Globe featured me as one of seven top Boston bloggers. Metro also named me one of the Top 50 Most Stylish People in Boston.
