Sarah Mae longs for Paris too. And she realized that just because she can't go to Paris right now doesn't mean that she can't be content where she is and find little tastes of Paris around her home.

She takes the time to delve a little deeper and not just rush past you when she sees that you just need a little something extra.
She wrote a new book last year. And it is going to be released in August. I am going ahead and telling you how much a LOVE it now because she has some pretty awesome pre-order goodies to go with it. To tell you how much I loved this book in E-book format, I went ahead and pre-ordered an autographed copy too.
