Hello there, friend! I’m so glad you stopped by.

I’m Sarah, a twenty-something Catholic woman, grad student, bookworm, and hygge enthusiast, who believes you can’t top a cozy Saturday in comfy sweats spent reading a favorite book, and that chocolate should be its own food group. My little life is nestled in the front range of the Colorado Rockies, and it’s saturated with simple pleasures affording profound wonder and authentically rooted joy. A few of my favorite things include deep conversations that last for hours, board game showdowns, independent bookstores and coffee shops, sips of hot cocoa and tea, long runs or walks in the Colorado sunshine, and spending time in Eucharistic Adoration. Generally, you’ll find me scavenging for grace, beauty, truth, and goodness in every corner of this miraculous existence.

I started this blog as I was preparing to graduate from the University of San Diego in May of 2015. At the time, I wasn’t sure what kind of blog this would be. I don’t have any hobbies on which to offer expertise, and I’m hardly a lifestyle guru. I’m still just figuring it out, you know? It’s not always easy to own this in a culture that tells us we’re supposed to have it all together right now (or ever). The world today seems to be all hustle, performance, and a fight for external approval to validate our self-worth. It’s a whirlwind where the media relentlessly shouts at us a hundred times a day to do, be, and have more, and where our automatic response to the question, “How are you?” has become, “Busy!”

And it’s so clear to me that, more than ever, we need a place to slow down. To pause. To think. To remember who and Whose we are. To remember we’re here not for applause or achievement, but to love and be loved. After all, as Jesus Himself reminds us, “There is need of only one thing” (Lk 10:42).

If you, too, are feeling exhausted by the frenetic pace of the modern hustle, I invite you to pour yourself a steaming mug of your favorite warm beverage and stay awhile. I’m here to share my heart in the hopes of encouraging yours.
