About The Amusing Muse

©2012 JS Photography

Writer. Blogger. Model. Renaissance Woman.

I am an ordinary person who leads an ordinary life where I work at an ordinary job and do ordinary things in my spare time.

It’s all very ordinary.

At least I thought it was ordinary until people started to tell me it was extraordinary.  How I grew up, how I approached life and live my days still seems unremarkable to me.  My life as always been something that “just is” but people still don’t believe me when I say that my life is “ordinary”.  With that, a little bit about me, the writer, blogger, model and Renaissance woman:

I have loved words, books and pictures as far back as I can remember.  I grew up in a home wherein an entire wall of books and an eclectic collection of music on vinyl resides.  I knew how to wash laundry, cook dinner, care for the pets and livestock and work in the family garden by the time I was eight years old.  I’d spend hours riding my pony or just walking the hills and valleys in the woods near my house.  I grew up knowing hard work, how to have fun, the love of family (by blood or otherwise) and how to be capable.

All of those things, and so many more, created and shaped me into who I am today.  And who is that?  Who I am is an ever-evolving piece of work and that is the honest answer.  Who I was five and ten years ago isn’t exactly the same person that I am now.

I am me.

My name is Sarah.  One day I will publish my name in full, but until then, we’re on a first name basis.  I was born and raised and still live in Wisconsin.  I love my friends and family.  I joke about being a Jane-of-all-Trades and that I know a lot about a little and a little about a lot.


… Independent.
… a Traveler.
… in love with life.
… friendly.
… a Foodie.
… particular.
… an imperfect environmentalist.
… a Human Being and Human Doing.

I believe

… in being Capable.
… in being Friendly.
… in the power of a genuine smile.
… in opening the door when Opportunity knocks.
… in picking up after myself.
… in Love.
… that Life happens.
… in being perfectly imperfect.

And that is who I am, at least a synopsis of who I am, and my starting point for the rest of my life.

I am a Writer. Blogger. Model. Renaissance Woman.  A perfectly imperfect Human Being and Human Doing who has chosen to live my life with 100% enthusiasm and muse on it all along the way.

And hopefully,
maybe once in a while,
make people laugh and smile along my way.
