Goodbye August, Hello Baby!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

It’s nearing the end of summer here in North America. August has been hard and it has been beautiful.

This month we mourned for Michael Brown and Ferguson, for families in Iraq and Syria, for immigrants and travelers and families caught in the middle of war and uncertainty. We won’t forget this August for a long time to come.

But this month we also celebrated and welcomed new life into our midst. Hint: there are cute baby pictures in this month’s zine.

It’s hard to have the right words for all the life packed into the past 30 days here at SheLoves, so instead we just crammed some of the highlights into our little book.

xoxo

I’m more likely to answer to Sars than Sarah. That’s because years ago my brothers started calling me Sars and, as the name implies, it was infectious. I’m a self-proclaimed writer-photographer-Jesuslover-painter-adventurer-foodie. I have a near obsession with ending injustice and I’m a sucker for a good cause. I blog about life and building a tiny house at sometimesscreaminghelps.com.

    This Zine perfectly sums up the words of Frederich Buechner:
    “Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Do not be afraid.”
    Thank you, as always, for crafting beauty.
