Nice to Meet You, I'm Sarah



Voracious Reader

Whimsical Wanderer

It all started in the sixth grade when I stopped playing with my childhood neighbor friend and spent an entire Saturday in my bed reading a fresh, new Nancy Drew mystery!

It was delicious, and I was hooked.

I’ve been in love with words ever since, and probably before since, but that’s the since I remember best.

I used to be all WHIMSY, but then I met my husband, Jay, who is all STARCH.

OK, that’s an exaggeration, but you know what I mean. Over the years, we’ve sort of melded a bit until now I have my own bit of STARCH and he has his own bit of WHIMSY. Does that mean we’re now STARMSY? Or WHARCH? Yikes!

Honestly, this describes me as well… I’m wildly emotional and wildly rational. My days are spent trying to figure out whether to listen to my heart or my head. 

I LOVE WORDS! I love books. I love reading. I love a good sentence. AND I love encouraging other people to read. It’s my greatest joy when someone picks up a book I recommend. Doesn’t get much better!

But don’t be alarmed if you’re not a reader! This blog is about other things as well! 

My kids are currently 9 (Diesel) and 11 (Lula). Life is interesting, isn’t it? Parenting isn’t for the faint of heart no matter how many kids you have and what their ages are. So we discuss a lot of that here too. It’s really just a big social experiment!

I love to explore what’s going on in our household and hearing how you handle similar issues. It’s nice to know you’re not alone and not the only one with struggles.

We’re currently in our 6th home back in the USA after living in Asia for two glorious years. And once again find ourselves renovating and decorating

And that about makes up what you’ll find here at – Books, Life, House Stuff.

Join us on our adventures, both in books and in real life. I can’t ever decide which is better. So here I am, and here you are! Welcome!
