My name is Sarah, author of Sarah, Plain & Average.
Why the Plain & Average name, you may ask? Welllllll. . . I am a quiet sort of person, until you get to know me. . . :] I stand 5'5" barefoot, so I'm not really tall, hence average. If asked to describe myself, I would blank out and stammer something unintelligible. I would say I'm rather plain, although I enjoy bright colors, glitter, and sprinkles.
I am somewhat of a bookworm, a complete movie freak, a self-proclaimed author (pen name: Sarah Sackett) and poet (with two published poems!), and aspiring photographer. A good book, hot cup of tea, and cozy chair by the fire complete my version of a dream-day. I enjoy reading, writing, and drawing (sketches, and some digital). Ballet is another of my passions.
I do not attend college, having graduated high school in May of 2010. Through many days of prayer, and yes, worry for the future, I felt the Lord call me to stay home and train to be a help-meet and keeper-at-home, honing skills that, God-willing, I can put to work in my own family and house someday. My days are spent working on the family farm, playing around with various hobbies, housework (of course!), blogging, cooking, and basically anything else that needs to be done.
I am blessed to live in a wonderful family of six, with my lovely parents (Steve and Jody) and three siblings: Jenny, Julia, and Jamin--all of whom, as you can see, have names that start with the letter "J" except for my daddy and myself. :]
As to my age, I am three and twenty years old, which officially makes me an. . . *gasps* adult! In all actuality, I can't believe I have lived over two decades. . .
So, there you have it.
An average girl wishing to share a page (or two) of her everyday, average life with you.
Or in the words of one of my original languages,
"Dahti bwe'uom!" God be with you!
