Welcome to A Little Southern Grace.  Here’s a little about me:


My name is Madison. My middle name is Grace, hence the blog title!

I’m from a small southern town in Texas.  We’ve moved here and there but have always stayed relatively close to where my mom grew up outside of Austin.

I have five siblings, which makes six of us – three girls and three boys. ALMOST alternating. We currently live on 60 acres in a house my mom designed, with our parents and a few rascally pets who are way too spoiled.

And, yes, I’m the second oldest despite my younger brother standing beside me and being way taller than I am!

 I’ve been homeschooled since first grade, and recently started my college career at Southwestern University.  My current plan is to study history and business.  After school, I would love to teach and travel around the US a little.

But I’ll tackle that when I get to it, I suppose.  For now, I’m so excited to be moving on to college and can’t wait to get involved at Southwestern while keeping up with my hobbies.

I’ve always loved creative hobbies.

I have dozens of little “books” dating back to 2004, when I was 6 years old.  Most of them consisted of one or two pages with plenty of scribbled drawings and very few words!

My first full-length novel came about during NaNoWriMo when I was about 13 years old.  After that story, writing unfortunately shifted to the back burner. But every now and then I get a chance to type out a few lines when inspiration strikes.

Besides writing, I love art and photography and hope to continue improving in those areas throughout college.

When I created this blog in 2016, I wanted to have a place to share anything and everything.  So expect quite a variety of pictures!  To give you an idea, I post family trips, photo shoots, writing tips, life updates, book reviews, and (very soon) college experience/tips.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy!  Be sure to leave me a comment somewhere – I love to hear about my readers 🙂
