Hi! I’m Dominique, the blogger behind Gusto & Grace. I was born in Athens, Greece and moved around a lot with my Air Force father and my family before finally settled down in Austin, Texas after getting married three years ago. I love transforming my husband’s former bachelor pad into our first home. In my mind, it will probably always be a work in progress, but it has come a long way. Around here, it is slow and steady progress towards a big and growing vision.
Blogging challenges me to continue to grow, learn, and create. I hope Gusto and Grace encourages you to start where you are, make the most of what you have, and share your lives however they look.
Right now, blogging and decorating are just a side hustle. I graduate from Texas Christian University (go Horned Frogs!) with a degree in Communication Studies. My day job is in Marketing and I use up every vacation hour I’m given travelling, which I also chronicle here. Other passions of mine include eating dessert and everything about Christmas.
I aim to live with a little gusto and a lot of grace. Would you join in?
