Hello, and welcome to the blog A Semi-Convenient Life! My name is Sarah. I’m a physician assistant, artist, DIYer, gardener, occasional writer, blogger, and as of September 1 2017… a mom. I’ve been interested in getting into blogging for some time now. Unfortunately, I have been the master of procrastination and have yet to get things really up and running. I have failed multiple times with many other blogs, but I’m hoping that this one will take off and function like I want it to.
The idea for A Semi-Convenient Life came to me during my maternity leave. Two weeks prior to delivery (while I was laid up on bedrest), I had been contemplating using my time off to try and finally get a blog up and running. (Little did I know how much time in newborn takes!) I wanted to have a space where I could share some of my ideas in relation to baking, gardening, art making, lifestyle, and just about anything else I wanted. Everyone talks about creating “niche” blog , but what I really wanted was a “Jill-of-all-trades” lifestyle blog. A space to call my own.
It was one of those early-morning moments when I had just finished feeding my daughter when the title came to me. I got to thinking a little bit about what my life has become now. I looked out my kitchen window to my raised bed garden where I had grown multiple fruits, veggies and herbs for the past 2 years – some of which I had only recently canned into delicious tomato sauce and Rotel – yet the same time I was standing in front of my Keurig getting ready to make myself a pumpkin spice latte from the Starbucks K-cup line. There are many times that I try to do things myself and make things from scratch, and then there are times where I need the conveniences of modern day life in order to function.
I am living a semi-convenient life. A life in the middle.
This blog is dedicated to the many ways I live life in the middle. From product recommendations to recipes to building things from scratch. I hope you find my posts useful if you too are trying to life a balanced life in the middle.
