Meet the Blogger

Hello! My name is Gracelyn Buckner, but you can call me Grace. (I do not like to be called Gracie. πŸ˜‰ ) For more formal info on me, please click here. Otherwise, read on. πŸ™‚


I was born and raised in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. (I live to the north of Asheville, NC.) WNC is a pretty awesome place to live. Here are some pictures I took of areas near my home:

Here’s an overview of my family: I have a mom, a dad, one younger brother, two sets of grandparents (both of my grandfathers are retired Baptist pastors), two sets of aunts and uncles, and two cousins. I also have a 99-year-old great-grandmother.

So, back to me. I am a former homeschooler, Child of the One True King, author, blogger, and pianist. I have one self-published novella, Letters from Home, and I’m working on several other projects.Β I am an INFJ, if you care about that. I have a black cat named Baby Midnight, who thinks I’m crazy (most people would agree).

That expression says it all. πŸ˜‰

Things I like/love/that interest me:

  • cats and other small furry animals
  • history- epecially the Romanov Family, the Civil War/Stonewall Jackson, Titanic, Columbine High, and the Biltmore Estate,
  • psychology- especially MBTI, mental health, and social issues (TEDx, anyone?)…I actually want to be a mental health counselor
  • books- I cannot express my love for words in general
  • poetry
  • pinterest (link to my profile)
  • winter, snow, and cold (I was born on the first day of winter, so…) I also love fall- the first nip in the air makes me laugh
  • CHRISTMAS (‘nuf said)
  • music- I’ve played piano for over seven years, and I love playing by ear and composing
  • Russia-the history and the language
  • flowers- marigolds are my favorites, but I also love a lot of wildflowers
  • cooking/decorating with my grandmother- she and I get along really well πŸ˜‰
  • people-watching- my family’s a bit freaked out by how much I people-watch, and how much I know about people…my cousins call me a stalker…nah…
  • peopling (this goes right along with the one above)- although I’m an introvert, I LOVE people and I love spending time with people…plus I have a lot of friends
  • our area- my little town is the best πŸ™‚

So, hopefully this gave you an idea of what I’m like. Thanks for visiting! πŸ™‚
