My name is Sarah.
I’m a twenty-something, married to Evan, and the momma to two crazy little guys, Gabe (6.5) and Connor (2.5).
Gabe is my wild man and my sweetheart. As always, I can always count on a great big Gabe hug when the day has been long. We have recently discovered that my little guy has Sensory Processing Disorder. It has been a wild ride of new adventures and there are sure to be many more. As hard as it has been to learn, it is also a relief to know that he can learn how to deal. We’re not viewing this as disabling — but instead, just as an obstacle course that we’re pushing through together. No challenge too big! He is a Lego fanatic and I call him my builder extraordinaire. He also has a strange fascination with bow-ties.
Connor is almost three going on ninety. He is sometimes pretty grouchy but dancing is his weakness. Lovingly referred to as “old man”, he’s a mess and, evidently, nocturnal. We’re working on it. He adores Gabe and anything he sees big brother doing. He is Gabe’s bossy little side-kick. His favorite things (besides his big bro) are Curious George, Mickey Mouse, and fruit snacks. I could feasibly be a stock-holder in Mott’s at this point. Just saying.
I am married to my mutually weird counterpart, Evan. He’s everything I never looked for and am beyond glad that I found. He is my sanity and keeps me cool and level-headed. Those of you who know me well know that this is quite a feat to accomplish. We met through a mutual friend, and even though I didn’t really want things to work out (I’d sworn off dating for ohhh, the millionth time), I’m so glad they did. I’ve never been happier to be wrong — and that’s saying a lot for me. He’s brought out my inner nerd (I haven’t decided if that’s a good thing or not) and helped me embrace my over-all weirdness. He also indulges me in my love for Whoppers (the candy, not the sandwich) — a habit my hips are begging me to break.
I am a lover of all things beautiful and simple, a sucker for tulips & daisies, and a wanna-be architectural buff. I almost never (okay, never) turn down a beverage of the carbonated and diet variety and have a weakness for peanut butter, chocolate, and Nutella. Give me all four of those things and I’m yours for life.
So, in short, welcome to my little section of the internet. Hope you will come around often!
