Welcome, friend! Relax & rest awhile, if you please. I'm an ordinary girl, a follower of Christ, mama to Gabriel, & wife to Evan. Here in this little space of the online world, I share all manner of bookish things, including full content reviews, writerly snippets, encouragement for everyday life, and a whole collection of names & their meanings.

welcome to my blog

About Me

E + S  |  10.8.16
Why is it so difficult to describe one's self?

As seen in my blog title, my name is Sarah, which means "princess" in Hebrew.  *^ - ^*  (TBH, I'm 99.9% sure I'm a Disney princess & that I married my Beast---so my name is rather fitting, I think.  *wink wink*)

Why the Plain & Average name, you may ask?  Welllll. . . I am a quiet sort of person, until you get to know me, then WATCH OUT---I can be rather goofy, clumsy, & awkward.  I stand 5'5" barefoot, so I'm not really tall, but not really short either---hence, the average.  If asked to describe myself, I would blank out & stammer something unintelligible & quite possibly redden considerably in the facial area.  But eventually I would manage something along the lines of: I'm a twenty-something lover of stories & consider myself rather plain, although I enjoy bright colors, laughter, sunshine, glitter, & sprinkles.

I am somewhat a total book dragon, movie freak, an aspiring author, poet (with three published poems!), and crafter of things.  I enjoy photography, FOOD, all the fandoms! and so much more.  Give me a beach, sunscreen, & a book---or mountains, my favorite chocolate-mint tea, & a book, and I'M GOOD TO GO.

I strive to be a Hufflepuff-loyal friend, a genuine encourager, and a shining Light for my God & King.  My prayer every day is to be a light & a blessing to anyone & everyone I meet, that I might show my Christ to those around me through my love, His heart, & actions.

On October 8th, 2016, I married my best friend & my true love, Evan, and we celebrated the best day EVER with our family & friends.  He tells me I'm beautiful, especially on the days I DON'T feel like it.  I see & hear my heavenly King in his words, his actions, & his eyes.  He's my Mr Darcy---without a doubt!---and I, his Lizzie.

About two years later, Evan & I welcomed Gabriel James into the world on August 27th, 2018.  My God is so good!  This parenting things is certainly a challenge at times, but Gabe is a heart-melter & such a blessing to my hubby & I.  <3 I've got the best job in the world.

And that's me.
An average girl, sharing a bit of her mama-life & bookish things.  I have a dream to someday publish a book or three (if ever they are finished. . .), but it's certainly all in God's timing.  Perhaps someday. . .  :]

Such a pleasure to meet you, dear heart!  Now, tell me about you!
