Another Yellow Wood

' Three years ago, as a sixteen-year-old Sarah, I wrote two blog posts respectively titled The Road Not Taken and My Yellow Woods. Tonight, as I sit here at my computer, part of me is laughing. Those two posts, which I lost when I switched my blog to WordPress, were about my decision (after a … Continue reading Another Yellow Wood

My Savior and My God

This week at my church’s Bible Study for women, I was asked to share what God has been doing in my life. As I wrote out what I planned to share, it struck me that I should share this on my blog as well! God has been teaching me the same things over and over because … Continue reading My Savior and My God

An Open Letter to Sydney

Dear Sydney, You’re awesome. Seriously. You’ve got this great sense of style- everything from Pusheen to scarves to The Flash. It’s eclectic and it’s you. Even though you’re still figuring things out, you doing it the right way. You’re looking to find your style, not trying to simply copy everyone else. You listen. On Sunday, … Continue reading An Open Letter to Sydney

Speeding

I love driving. Seriously. I got a car roughly two months ago and I’ve already put over a thousand miles on it. I do every errand I can just so I can drive around town. I love going fast- love driving on the interstate. No, I don’t speed. I go the speed limit. That’s where … Continue reading Speeding

On the Eve of the Eve of My Graduation

When did you get excited about your high school graduation? Was it during your freshman year? During your senior prom? When you were accepted into a college? When you got a scholarship? When you finished your last paper? Or was it really, really late? Like, six days before graduation late. Because that’s when it was … Continue reading On the Eve of the Eve of My Graduation

The Best Brother (Sorry everyone else, Philip wins hands down)

I am the oldest of four children, and today is my "little" brother's birthday. Philip is sixteen today, but as I told him this morning, I think I've been telling people he's sixteen for the last four months because he never really looked fifteen. Well, maybe he did, but that would have been two years ago. … Continue reading The Best Brother (Sorry everyone else, Philip wins hands down)

What Does It Take To Make You Feel Beautiful?

Well? What is it for you? Makeup? Trendy clothes? The perfect selfie? I never really cared about my appearance until I was about thirteen. I had just started crushing on guys and wondering why I didn't look like most of the other girls I saw. So I started blow-drying my hair, trying to pick out … Continue reading What Does It Take To Make You Feel Beautiful?

I’m Alive! Nine Things My Family Unintentionally Taught Me

Hello loyal readers! Yes, it is I, Sarah. I'm alive (not exactly well, as I'm recovering from poison ivy and battling with the steroid that seems to help my rash and devastate everything else) and back after exactly two months of silence. My apologies are numerous but not extremely guilty. I haven't had much to say … Continue reading I’m Alive! Nine Things My Family Unintentionally Taught Me

Beyond Me

I’ve been so scared. So very, very scared for the last couple months. As most of you who know me are aware, I’m graduating in May. As you also know, I will not be attending college. I’ve been afraid. I’ve been afraid- no, terrified- of graduating. Instead of a whole new life, an open door, … Continue reading Beyond Me
