Sweet & Savory Life

Happy SITS Day to me!

SITS is an online community where female bloggers have the opportunity to connect with one another and share their stories. If you are a new blogger, I highly recommend visiting their site and signing up. It’s a great way to meet other awesome women out there and build your fan base.

If you are a brand new visitor to S&S Life today–welcome! I am so happy that you’re here, and hope that you’ll hang out a while.

My name is Sarah and I tend to post a lot about…

* DIYs I’ve completed. I live to create.

* Heart-to-Hearts I had to get off my chest.

* Delicious food I can’t get enough of.

* My Health & Wellness journey.

8 things I love about myself | sweetandsavorylife.com

You can certainly read my full story and intro, but here are the highlights:

* I grew up in rural East Texas and now live in Eastern North Carolina.

* Head over heels for this guy. (He even posts from time to time.)

* I do my damndest to live with an open soul and love with my whole heart. I stumble often (and then write about it).

* I strive for balance in my life, and am learning every day how to fully accept myself.

* Marketing Specialist by day, creative hippie by night.

I blog because I have (what I believe to be) a gift for sharing my experiences and the emotions that inevitably follow, and nothing makes me feel more aligned with the Universe than hitting “Publish” on raw content and starting a conversation.

I am working towards something big, though I am not sure what yet. S&S Life is my vessel where I savor the sweetest parts of my life and (hopefully) encourage others to do the same. I am as honest as possible and never paint paint a picture that is prettier than my own real life. As you know, life isn’t always pretty, and I have explored that understanding through rougher topics such as divorce, change, and grief.

Here are some posts that I re-read to this day when I’m needing a pick-me-up, or just to be reminded of what is real in life (compared to what may be going on in my head).

On dealing with divorce and outside perceptions:

* Sinners VS Saints

* An Expected Turn

On change:

* I am a bucket of emotion.

* The past three days.

* Jump Like You Mean It (a favorite!)

* There is no such thing as “the right time.” (another favorite!)

* Live & Love This Moment

On grief and loss:

* About Ken

On maintaining creativity:

* Create More. Hustle less.

* 12 Things I’ve Learned About Photography

On physical acceptance (a toughy, for sure):


* I almost didn’t go to boot camp this morning.

* 8 things I love about my body.
