The Gal Behind Like A Warm Cup Of Coffee - Sarah Mae

Hello! I'm Sarah Mae and I'm a household engineer (a.k.a stay-at-home mommy of three and wife to one very cool motorcycling husband) who adores my man, my babes, wild blue skies, coffee, and Jesus! My blog is all about journeying along side other women who are seeking to find the eternal value in who they are and all they do. I am proud to be called a java-hugger.

Not every one can have 100 things to say about themselves, so good for you.. I also like the idea of the short video you have. Maybe I will copy it on my blog. now, I have a question, how did you learn to can "party" in Arabic?

Chelsey said...

Sarah Mae - I would LOVE to meet you in person one day! :) I loved your list and your video!! Thanks for sharing - it was grea to get a glimpse into the "real you".

Linda said...

Sarah Mae,

I take it from your 100's post that you tell it like it is. I admire that.

You sound like a lot of fun. I like to read your posts. That's why I have your button on my blog.

I think I would like to go to Italy some day too.

I like to write poems. I listed one today on my blog.

What is a slam poem? (Sorry, I am 58)

I like to read, but haven't been doing too much of it since I have been blogging. Too much to read here in blogland.

I wish I could have a little more energy these days,...but I have a great life.

It sounds like you are a joyful person too.

I look forward to knowing you better as the blogs go by.

Linda @ Truthful Tidbits

If you are ever in Oxford, Ohio, check out Kofenya. It's an awesome independent coffee shop with worn out furniture (and old movie theater seats for the booths!) interesting art work, budding musicians on weekend-nights, and lots of college students from Miami U hanging out. My favorite cozy coffee place, just thought I'd share it with you :-)

Tiffany said...

Great list! I have been reading your blog for a couple of weeks now and finally visited this page. It feels like I "know" you so much better now. My blog is still in the beginning stages, I'm going to remember this idea. I LOVE Settlers of Catan!
