Hi there, my name is Sarah. Read More
When I wasn’t sleeping last week I was snuggled up on the couch reading books or watching movies trying to recover from the flu. If you’re looking for a fun read or movie I finished MWF Seeking BFF (book), Girls in White Dresses (book), and Water Horse (movie).
It wasn’t what I had expected nor planned when I published last week’s post on rest that’s for sure.
I didn’t plan to do a take two on last week’s post either. After I spent four days resting I knew I needed to do a follow up.
Getting sick forces you to rest and to trust God to heal your body.
In my time of rest I was reminded that I’m not always in control of my plans, that our security can’t come from other people, and that God loves us so much.
No matter how sick we are. No matter how selfish we are. No matter how stubborn we become. No matter how imperfect we feel. No matter how much we rest or don’t rest.

I enjoyed a weekend of rest. A weekend spent with an early morning hike, reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (which I’ve almost finished and highly recommend), and serving and loving my best friend.
This week take a moment to rest. Notice the small, but wonderful details in life (such as a salamander).
How do you rest?
I want to congratulate Gina on winning the giveaway for this box!
This box came in the mail on Monday and could not have had better timing.
I love the colorful packing any Darby Smart purchase comes in (see Instagram for my preview to today’s post).
Happy Wardrobe Wednesday, readers!
It is no secret that I absolutely love sunshine. Since I’ve lived in the Willamette Valley in Oregon almost two years I’ve embraced the fact that sunshine is rare. I’ve decided that rain and not much sunshine is way better than a Midwest winter with sunshine.
On rainy days I’m automatically picking a bright color to accent my outfit for the day. Brighter colors, brighten moods right?
Wearing bright colors and using a Happy Light is one key to brightening the day. If you’ve never heard of a Happy Light it emulates natural daylight and has been by far one of my two best purchases since moving to Oregon.
My other best purchase was a North Face Rain Jacket, which I put on right after this photo was taken to leave the house.
What’s your favorite rainy day outfit, readers?
When I was thinking about the life of my wardrobe, I realized how strange and diverse it has been. I have owned everything from a short, cropped MC hammer-esque bomber jacket, to a floor length black lace dress. In one day, I might go from a business casual skirt and blouse to a sweatshirt of wolves howling at the moon and leggings. I’d absolutely love to say this does not describe my personality. I’d love to say it’s just some sort of fluke that my wardrobe is high on variance and lacking continuity. However, nothing suits me more than having a closet full of seemingly random things simply because I love them. Read More
There was a time when at least 2,000 words a day would dance across my keyboard. I wrote incessantly. I don’t anymore. I’m working on getting back into writing. In the mean time here is one thing that I noticed yesterday morning when this whole ponderation came crashing down: I don’t notice life as much.
What do I mean? Here is a sampling of what I used to write:
Happy Thursday, Readers!
Today I’m excited to share a DIY Chair Rehab adventure with you. My friend Amanda asked me a couple weeks ago to assist her with this project and I was quite excited to help. Our schedules finally aligned and our dear friend Jenna’s did too. On Saturday Jenna and I went over to Amanda’s house for an amazing breakfast and to start operation DIY Chair Rehab.
