I’m Sam. I’m a lover of well-crafted words, fresh blueberries, autumn campfires (with s’mores!), and a warm breve. Arkansas is home, with my favorite human and gifted husband, Mitchell, and our energetic, flirtatious pup, Augie. Beating the odds and blowing our minds, God has given us a tiny, handsome fella that we’ll meet mid-October. I can’t wait to share a glimpse of him with you. 🙂
This blog began when cancer entered our world. (For a condensed version of those stories, read this.) Ever since, it has been a place for me to think, vent, muse, and babble. You’ll find more than cancer-talk though. Writing is in my bones. It’s healing, and so a lot of my heart gets poured out here. I talk about things that interest, amuse or intrigue me — life things — a morning jog, a local burger, friends over on a Thursday night, creating something new with my own hands, a perfectly painted sky…
What you read here may not always be perfectly stated or well put-together. I can promise, though, that it’ll be honest.
I’m so glad you’re here.
Joie de vivre,
