Meet the Maker

Hi, I’m Kari - founder of the popular mom blog Graceful Mommy. I have a 2-year-old wild child, Gracie and I am pregnant with a baby boy who is expected to arrive on Christmas Day! I used to be a Kindergarten teacher and now I am a work-at-home-mommy. I do product photography and social media work for brands.

And Meet Our Little Smartie

There are tons of smart women throughout history, so it was tricky to choose one to have Gracie dress up as. My dad (Gracie's grandpa) is a pilot and Gracie loves looking in the sky at the airplanes. So, for our "smarties" costume, we chose Amelia Earhart! She is super inspiring, as she was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She got many awards and set tons of records. Gracie and I were so excited to make a DIY costume of her!
