Sage & Simple
I'm Sage, an American girl living in Denmark. I choose happiness, living simply, with a sweet ginger cat named Opie, in a vintage home close to the sea. I live. I cook. I travel. I write about it here.

Sage has the best vegetarian recipes and I love her stories about not being able to find this or that and how she manages to get past it. Plus she's funny and has nice photos. I like that her blog is about life and not just about living in Denmark.

I really enjoy reading this blog for all the upcycling stories and delicious recipes.

18:52 PM December 10, 2012

Sage has an interesting blog with beautiful photos and tempting recipes!

I like reading Sage's blog for the delicious vegetarian recipes that even omnivores love to eat. Her travel stories are always interesting and personal. I love her vintage decor and clothing esthetic,that she adds her own Sagish twist on. Beyond content, it is a beautiful blog to look at in terms of photography, graphics, layout and design. Lastly but certainly not least; OPIE, OPIE, OPIE....I adore him.

Sage offers us a chance to enjoy life in Europe, a first hand perspective on the joys and trials of moving overseas, and the beauty of the Continent.

20:22 PM December 10, 2012

Always interesting. I love the pics of her redecorating, hearing about her adventures, and of course her cat Opie!

Sage is such an inspiration in how she picked up and moved to a whole different country and well Opie, he is just adorable!!! I love this blog!

03:50 AM December 11, 2012

Love reading how she tries to adjust recipes that she once made with great ease in the US but now with limited resources abroad.

07:54 AM December 11, 2012

A great ongoing story of an adventurous woman and her cat! I love her. I love the cat. I love her travel photos, recipes, and wit. I love that for once, it isn't a family blog! It's nice to have a peek into the lives of people who have made different choices than most.

12:44 PM December 11, 2012

I have been following this blog for a long time now and Sage is always refreshing and full of excellent advice on home decorating, thrift and cooking. I love her descriptions of life as an expat and of her travels. She deserves to win this award.

This incredible blog has fantastic, interesting stories and great writing and photography, along with a nice cat! What more could any blog possibly offer!?

22:04 PM December 11, 2012

I just found this blog a couple weeks ago, so I'm still getting used to it and reading some previous posts... She's got a great voice and I love reading about expats living in other countries... and the cat is adorable..

Love Sage and Simple. The recipes are wonderful, the photos beautiful and I love traveling to far off places through Sage's writing.

12:18 PM December 12, 2012

it's a really nice blog with great photos, design ideas, and (most importantly) FOOD. i also live in denmark and it's nice to get another perspective on life here. (:

I came across Sage's blog a while back and always found it interesting, as I am married to a Dane and knew we might some day spend some time in Denmark. Indeed, 5 months ago we packed up our lives in sunny San Diego and moved to Denmark, and I've enjoyed her perspective on life here even more now that I can relate on many levels.

18:59 PM December 13, 2012

Lovely photos and charming stories!

21:20 PM December 14, 2012

I love the stories and perspectives that Sage shares and I always love seeing when a new post is available. I also really LOVE her photos. I'm living vicariously through her!

Sage is practically my travel advisor! She writes beautifully and takes wonderful pictures!

14:03 PM December 15, 2012

It is good to read that she is doing well. Traveling and creating her very own vegetarian recipes. The photos of her travels are sometimes breathtaking. Her struggle to survive in Denmark is admirable. MERRY CHRISTMAS SAGE
