About Sarah

I'm a librarian living with my lovely family in a gorgeous spot of New Jersey, where we raise chickens and love the outdoors. I try to find enough time to indulge all my hobbies-cooking, photography, gardening, sewing, and I write about it all on my book blog & personal blog.

  1. I’ll have you know that every time I see a hyacinth anywhere I think of your hilarious stately walk of grape hyacinths. They are among my very favorite of all the spring flowers I’ve met! 🙂
