a quick personal announcement

by Grace Bonney

Hi Everyone. I wanted to take a quick break from normal posting to share a brief personal update. Over the past 8 years of running Design*Sponge, it has been an honor and pleasure to share moments of my life with you. I feel like the community we’ve built together is one that both listens and communicates openly, and while I’ve done my best to do that, there is a part of my life that I’ve been waiting to discuss until I felt fully healed and ready to share.

Last year amidst balancing work and the book tour, I was also going through some big life changes. One of which is that Aaron and I are no longer married. We’ve had over a year to process and deal with this change, and I felt like it was time to share that information so it wasn’t confusing to anyone who saw either of us out in the real world. I don’t think that my personal life is newsworthy, so I’m going to keep this brief. Many of you have reached out with questions or concerns over the past year, and I just wanted to say that I greatly appreciate your support and thoughts. I feel happy and in a good place with my life and wish all of you endless amounts of the same. Thank you for listening, and now back to our regularly scheduled design programming. Love, Grace.
