Hi, I'm Lecy. I'm a 30-something writer, believer, creative, INFJ, and spoonie.

I love animals, practicing yoga, being a beach bum, borrowing library books, finding beauty in the ordinary and I happily carry my nerd card. I believe in storytelling, simple living, waking up early, making lists, taking my camera on nature walks, chasing big dreams, creating my own happiness, and building community over steaming cups of tea. I spend my days in the Blue Ridge Mountains, writing new pieces for this blog and various online and printed publications, working on new creative endeavors and managing a chronic illness.

A Simpler Grace is a lifestyle blog featuring a collection of heartfelt stories and essays with a healthy dose of witty sarcasm. Here, we talk about finding gratitude, making little moments count, exploring our creative passions and what inspires us to live simpler, grace-filled lives. My purpose for writing is to encourage and inspire creativity while making deep connections with the people in my community. I share 3-5 posts a week about a variety of topics from health and mental wellness to current events, in addition to several series I write.

Every week, I share:

Simple Gratitude | A peek at my daily gratitude journal where I share five things I'm thankful for that week and encourage you to join in.

Links to Love | Some of my favorite reads from across the interwebs and a video that is sure to make you smile.

Every month, I write:

Coffee Dates | A one-on-one chat about life over coffee.

Five Things | Some random thoughts about a specific topic that's been on my mind lately.

Letters | An open letter series often written in the style of spoken word poetry, focusing on current events and more serious matters of the heart.

Monthly Reflections | At the end of every month, I write a wrap-up list sharing what I've been up to in life.

What I Read | My monthly book reviews and recommendations.

Every quarter, I post:

Goal Setting | To hold myself accountable, I share my blog and life goals along with a recap of the previous quarter's progress.

In Love on Instagram | Spreading the inspiration like jelly and introducing you to my current favorite Instagram accounts.

What I Learned | The lessons I'm learning, both big and small, in my current season of life.
