Welcome to my home on the internet!
I am Sarah – wife to William, and dog mama to our rescue, Mavis Jane.
I love getting lost in a good book, handwritten letters, genealogy, homemade meals & long family walks. I am always cold, and I love cozy scarves, sweaters and blankets. Hot drinks are my favorite! I always have coffee or tea beside me, in the fall that also includes cider, or in the winter, cocoa. Autumn is my favorite season – there is something so magical about the transition from summer to winter. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday; I love the intention of gathering with loved ones over good food to celebrate all the blessings in our lives. There are few simpler pleasures than listening to the rain or watching snow fall. Elephants are my favorite animal, but I have a soft spot for bears too! I have a passion for mental health advocacy. One of my life goals is to write a children’s book. I love learning about history and getting lost in books, documentaries, museums & podcasts. Nancy Meyers movies are the cure to a stressful or bad day. Nothing makes me feel as put together as the perfect shade of red lipstick, freshly waxed eyebrows and a fresh haircut. I love to play with new recipes in the kitchen; it’s a place William & I both love to relax.
I am a firm believer in acting justly, loving mercy and walking humbly. These are commands that are so easy to model the life you lead by, in addition to the greatest commandment of loving my neighbor like myself. My Catholic faith is incredibly important to me and I love serving my church community through teaching Sunday School, leading youth group, lectoring, and serving as a Eucharistic minister.
Growing up, my dad was an officer in the Air Force and we moved often. I was born in North Dakota, went to preschool in Northern Virginia, moved to Colorado just before kindergarten, Alabama for third grade, and back to Northern Virginia for the remainder of elementary school and beginning of middle school. The summer before seventh grade we moved back to North Dakota, July before I started high school we headed back to Alabama, the next summer we went back to Colorado, and before junior year of high school we moved to Montana. It was a bit crazy going to five elementary schools, three middle schools and three high schools. A week after I graduated high school my family moved back to Colorado and I went to university in Montana. When I graduated university, I moved to Colorado with my family, and when William and I got engaged, I moved to Idaho where he was working. In 2017, we moved to western New York for a new opportunity – clearly moving is in my blood, but we’re hopeful New York becomes our forever home.
