Less About Me


My name is Alexandria Sage.

I welcome you. And so I have written this “less about me” page—meaning the short version of me. And if you’re still reading this by now, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I hope you’ll read on … and get to know “less of me”, which may be all you need to know. But—just in case—there is always more

Which is why I started this blog. That’s where you’ll get to know a side of me where my endless daily thoughts and photography find a place to call home. So here I am. And again, I welcome you!

I like …
dawn, dusk,
history—all of it,
current events,
cultural trends,
peanut butter and jelly,
hard, exhausting work.

I have …
a red four-wheeler,
the sweetest canine,
one fierce feline,
a lovely dwelling place,
great health that comes at a high price,
a fulfilling job,
compassion for the lonely and lost,

I can …
keep a secret,
water ski,
grow flowers,

Grill and cook,


I struggle with …
the usual insecurities,
and frailties
inherent in human skin,
a chronic disease,
man’s cruelty to man and beast.

I love …
family, friends,
the smell of children,
the stories of old people,
the Holy Scriptures,
God, the Father,
His Son,

And His Holy Spirit.

I am …
a loyal friend,
passionate about nearly everything,
including sleep and play.
Loved deeply by my parents, husband,
children, and siblings.
A truth seeker, truth examiner,
and truth finder.
Intrigued by philosophy,
a dedicated student of the Scriptures
and follower of Jesus Christ.
So, so fortunate. And
Old enough.


I need …
love, mercy,

I long for …

I want …
to decrease sadness
and increase joy,
to make a difference for
… everyone.

    • Dear Subhan,
      It is never to late to wish a wonderful 2013. I thank you for such nice compliments on my blog and for taking the time to comment.
      I enjoy reading the blogs I follow and read them as time allows. I do read and enjoy yours very much.
      Keep it up! Have a great day.
      Again, thanks for the compliments.

  9. Less is more…. 🙂

    I love your mission, powerful message. 🙂

    • Thank you for all the visits and comments. I had a previous longer version (the “boring” one). Thought it best to sum it up like this!

  10. A great introduction. I like your first and last name, especially your last name since it’s one of my favorite culinary herbs.

    • Thanks for the compliments in every way. Mary is good name too. It’s dear to me as that is the name of my sister and grandmother.

  11. And, you are a poet, too!
    I really enjoyed reading Less of You, and there’s more! ;-D

  14. This is an awesome about page…love it.

  15. You describe yourself so beautifully. Thanks for sharing a piece of your heart with the world.

    • I have a long story, too, titled More About Me but put the less version on the blog. I look forward to reading your chapters. Good for you using your skills for missions. Blessing to you, sister in Christ.

  16. This “Less about me” summary is more than most people write on their About page. It gave me a very good idea of what you hold dear and what moves you….

  17. It is wonderful to meet you Alexandria, thanks for sharing such beautiful photos and posts! Thank you also for stopping by ISLAND VIGNETTES! Love the name of your blog!

    • Thank you so much. I’m honored for your compliments. Your blog sounds so interesting. I plan on visiting around there as well. Love the Caribbean, too!

  18. I see them!! Daffodils… they’re soooo COOL!! 😉

    Nice to meet you, Alexandria. Thanks for the follow.

  22. One of the best ‘About’ pages I’ve read. Thank You so much for listing my place (hadn’t realized it until today!) and considering it “Really Good”. An honor, for sure.

  23. This is beautiful. I found you via a comment you made on another blog:) You mentioned the Mississippi River and Cape Girardeau…I grew up on the Mississippi too – in Northeast Arkansas where my family still farms. I blog at Grace Grits and Gardening. I’ll be regularly following your blog. Yay! Talya

  24. it was an honour to be here ,Regards , EM

  25. By telling “less about you” you actually managed to tell a lot more than the average blogger. 😉 I like your page and this:
    “I want …
    to decrease sadness
    and increase joy,
    to make a difference for
    … everyone.”
    Peace out to you too… May you bring joy in many lives. ❤

  26. Dear Alexandria,

    What a sweet way to introduce yourself. Nicely done.



  27. what a beautiful about—and less, no less!

    My husband marked your blog this morning before he left for work for me to peruse. He often leaves dove pictures and articles on the computer for me to read in the morning so, with coffee in hand, I can explore what he has left for me as I wake up to a new day. What a lovely blog, and from your ‘less about me’, it seems are kindred souls in many respects. I truly hope to see you in heaven and have a chat.

    • Hi Denise,
      How nice of you to take the time to write such an encouraging comment! I’m glad my blog blessed you. And yes, we will most definitely meet some time; this or that side of heaven. One never knows! God’s blessings are new every morning and He certainly blessed me with you! Peace, Alexandria

  29. Nice to see gorgeous photo collections, thanks for sharing!

  30. Hello Alexandria, Nice to meet you. You are very talented and I enjoy your photo’s.

    • Nice to meet you as well, Pamela. I’ll surely visit your place. If your blog is about your name I always appreciate help with organization. 😉

  31. Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting. I have read less about you, which really is very much. A great way of getting to know you, so thanks for sharing that with us. Have a great weekend.

  32. Pleased to meet you.

  33. Love the less part about you and will now follow so I can learn the more part! ~ Have a blessed day with Jesus ~
