3 Questions : Sarah
3 Questions is an interview-style series featuring some of my favorite bloggers. Every week, I ask one inspirational person 3 completely random questions and ask them to share three photos that represent Who they are, What they do or make and Where they feel the happiest.
Something I’ve learned about Sarah over the years is that she does things with great intention and heart. I have followed her since she had a crafting blog. Eventually she started up a food specific blog and really shined…or perhaps glowed would be a better word. Some things are sparkly and they force you to look at them. Sarah’s blog isn’t like that. It is subtle and intriguing and invites you in. Mix a poet’s heart, a passion for photography and a respect for food and you’ve got a beautiful blog. I love how her children are always in her photos, even if it’s just a small hand reaching for a spoon, somehow it dissolves the frames and puts you in the room as well.
What is your favorite dessert?This is a hard question, because I love dessert, especially if it involves chocolate. The treat I make most is this chocolate cake; it’s requested often by family and friends. While it’s near the top of my list, my most favorite treat is a variation of it: chocolate cake with basil buttercream. Chocolate and basil together is an amazing experience.
What is your favorite winter activity? Living in Minneapolis, you’d think it would be ice skating, or skiing, or snowshoeing. But curling up with a good book is definitely my favorite winter activity. Being snowed in, the house is quiet and still, and it’s a perfect opportunity to get lost in a story.
In what ways are you superstitious?I’ve always been a worrier, spending lots of time and energy concerned (and sometimes frantic) about outcomes and a future I can’t control. After a few years of working through emotional and spiritual issues, I came to realize that worrying was a form of superstition, feeling that if I didn’t invest time anxious for others or myself, something bad would happen because of it. It’s been a hard pattern to break, but slowly I am making progress.
