Meet Dana


 Welcome to Grace and Gravel! This is my way to share my journey and love of food, travel, and life (DIY, family, ramblings) from our gravel road.

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 mins north of Charlotte with our cat(kitty) and Prince(Bombay) who we adopted from a shelter and Pretty Girl, she was my Dads cat, and we brought her home with us when he passed away. I have 3 kids who are growing too fast. Geri is 35, Austin is 25 and Ella is 19.

Our family is very active and constantly on the go.

We miss Sonny very much and will always love him. 
He was an awesome Husband and Father.

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

Being a "lunch lady" gives me the opportunity to cook every single day, and the contrary, the majority of our food is made fresh each day.

I really enjoy cooking and making delicious meals for my family and friends.

Austin, Ella, and Geri in the Bahamas, and the first time in a long time we had taken a family vacation and it was fantastic.

I am in love with mother nature, and like going for long walks and taking it all in. I have a confession though........

I also love a good brewery, food, and wine. 
The balance is a struggle.

Our Cat Kitty-She is kinda spoiled

Prince was a tiny little kitten when we adopted him
Pretty Girl joined our family when my Dad passed away.
 He really loved black & white cats. 

So, please stay awhile and have a look around.
