the Princess

About me. . .

    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!

Sarah Elizabeth said...

Thank you, Leah!

Actually, it's not new... *cough cough* I've had it since last September... *cough* But thanks anyway!! ^__^ I simply love it!

Congrats on being a published author!
Was there any other job you'd wanted to do?
Also, may I ask who designed the girl in the top left corner of your blog? The artwork is beautiful!

Sarah Elizabeth said...

Oh, thank you! Do you mean published, as having "published" poems on a poetry website? I have yet to finish a story project... *coughs*

Thanks for commenting! As to the girl illustration, Anna of Hero, who designed my blog found it on Pinterest. I love it, too! Here's a link: (I can't take any credit) :]

Have you ever seen/read "Sarah, Plain and Tall"?

Sarah Elizabeth said...

Yes, though it's been years! That's where my blog title came from. :] Since I stand 5'5", I'm not exactly tall, but average, hence the name. ;D

I would love if we could swap posts, or you would let me do a guest post here, or something. Comment on my blog if you'd be interested. :P

Hi Sarah Elizabeth!

I like your blog title. It's unusual and fun. (And from that picture, I don't think you're plain.)

I'm a huge bookworm, movie/drama geek and writer, too. Nice to meet you! It's always fun to meet people who share your interests.

I'm curious... does your pen name have anything to do with Louis L'Amour's Sackett series?

I'm a couple years older than you, so another 90's girl. *hi five*

I look forward to reading your blog more!

Sarah Elizabeth said...

Well, a big hulloa to you too, Miss Melody! :] Thanks for stopping by. And awww, you are too sweet. #^-^# It's a pleasure to meet you as well. I'm looking forward to more of your blog posts! I love finding fellow friendlies who share in the same likes/interests.

And yes, my pen name comes from the great L'Amour's Sackett family. I couldn't resist. They are most probably my favorite group of people ever. :]

Alright! High five, '90s girl! It's a pleasure to meet you!!
