  • Hello There!

    I'm Sarajane, a blogger and photographer based out of Asheville, NC.

    On this blog you can find stories from my life, my thoughts on the world,
    and photos of some pretty fantastic people!

    Grab a cup of coffee (or bourbon) and make yourself at home!
    Don't forget to leave a comment and let me know you were here.

    with love,

On Routine and Creation.

It can feel easy to go to work, come home, cook dinner, go to sleep, and repeat.
My variation of that has looked like this:
5:30-6 -> wake up
6-6:30 – > wash face, brush teeth, make silly faces in the mirror
6:30-7 -> breakfast in bed with a book or some informational videos
7-7:30 -> get ready
7:30-8:45 -> write at a coffee shop
9-5 -> work
Post work -> meet a friend for dinner or cook dinner
read a book?
9:00 -> go to bed

Decaf, Dogs, and Daisy! {This is the Good Life}

With my life going through some structural changes, I’ve been working to create a blogging routine that feels good to me and allows for some consistency. The easiest way to keep up with my posts is to subscribe {check the top right hand corner} but, for those of you who aren’t interested in that, I’d like to make it as easy as possible to know when to check out the blog.

SO, as I briefly mentioned on Wednesday you can expect a regular blog post every Monday. Occasionally, a guest blogger will appear on Wednesdays, and if I have something like a ‘This is the Good Life’ post or photos to share, that will happen on Fridays. As you all have probably figured out by now, I’m really into consistency.

For today, I felt it time to share some of the things that are bringing a smile to my face right now.

1. Decaf Coffee. 

I can’t believe I’ve been taking this for granted for so many years. Especially a great swiss water processed decaf {you can read about that here if you’d like.} Being able to drink coffee without the jitters is something that I am ashamed to admit I’d pretty much forgotten about. Winter has made me a believer again and I’m happy to consistently have something warm to sip on, minus the anxiety.

I Love That For You {Guest Essay from Emily Peele}

Hi there captivating blog readers! My life has me unable to blog as frequently as I once was. I’m creating content once a week on Mondays and have decided to open up this platform for other writers to share when they feel led to! My first Wednesday guest post was sent to my inbox from one of my dearest and most insightful friends. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and chew on the words of Emily Peele.

Transformative honesty that liberates the rest of us to do the same open talking. Thank you for this openness and for closing with our monarch of feminist thought, bell hooks.

Dear Diary.

Once, I attempted to write a poem which referenced a line from every journal I’ve had since I was 6 years old. The poem didn’t read well and so it has lived in an old journal of mine since last Fall. That particular old journal has been stowed away in my camera bag and I just pulled it out this week. As I read through it, it was that piece which I connected to the most. I decided, as per usual, to share.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I love it- not just the idea of constructing a poem from journals throughout the years, or that you pulled this poem comprised of lines from old journals out of an old journal and then had the courageous vulnerability to share it- but mostly your sweet, genuine heart boldly scribing raw heartbeats across the page. It is a thing of beauty, and thank you for sharing. xo.

I love this so much. It’s beautiful and just so good – hard to even describe, but I love it. Love the whole idea of it.

Flood Waters.

We used to swim in flood waters.
In the summer we spent at dad’s house the river would rise.
He had two mobile homes that backed up to the water and lived on top of stilts

No one will ever convince me that praying for a hedge of protection around your children doesn’t work. I bet you have a gaziillion angels keeping watch. It would nice if we could see them ………
