Meet Dana


Hi, y'all! I'm Dana, and I started Grace and Gravel as a creative outlet and to share my love of food, family, travel and the day to day adventures that is our life.
 I am glad you are here for my ramblings and hope you come back often. 
Grab some coffee and let's be friends.

I was born in and still live in the small town of Mooresville, NC

This is our town as the sun sets on another gorgeous day.

My family lives in the small town of Mooresville, NC about 30 north of Charlotte with our cat(kitty) I know we put a ton of energy into her name(lol). I have 3 kids who are growing too fast. Geri is 32, Austin is 21and Ella is 14. What the what, how did that happen.... shockers but, I blinked and they grew up. Our family is very active and constantly on the go.

We are not really a formal photo family, so here is a pic of us 
just excited we all got thru security the at 
Port of Charleston before our cruise to the Bahamas

I like to decorate our home with flea market finds and spend hours in antique shops or any discount warehouse. I also go to auctions, tag sales, and yard sales to find a good deal. 

I am cheap, but I want a high end look too.

My day gig is being a Middle School lunch lady and I have been having a blast doing that every school year for many years. 

I really enjoy cooking and making delicious foods for my family and friends. I have a Foodie Friday series where I like to feature some of my favorite restaurants, chefs or other foodies who are making me want to try everything on their menu.

We love to travel and explore places like the NC Mountains, anywhere along Ocean Drive is our second home and sometimes we just go find new adventures.

I really need to have a family picture taken!!

Grace and Gravel has given me many wonderful opportunities such as meeting President Obama at a town Hall Meeting read more about that HERE Or, HERE I show you how to convert a cargo trailer into a camper(Bessie) is her name. It is never boring but always an adventure so, please stop back by soon.

Our Cat Kitty-She is kinda spoiled

I am always sharing something fun and exciting, and if you would like to get on the Grace and Gravel email list just sign up below. 
I promise never to share your email or information with anyone, that would just be rude. 

Hope to see you around and let's chat!
