I’m Sarah Scott Pape. I live in Austin,TX with my husband where I teach English Literature to High School Sophomores and take pictures of people getting married. My love language is dry humor and I’m non-discriminatory when it comes to chocolate and caffeine.

I like to write. Virginia Woolf says she doesn’t know what she thinks until she’s read what she’s written, and I couldn’t say it better myself. This space is a collection of thoughts, captured moments, and external processing as I try to find God in and laugh my way through my days.

This verse more or less captures it all…

“And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.

(1 John 1:1-4)
