Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Thanks to From Meredith to Mommy, I discovered the Ultimate Blog Party 2013 at 5 Minutes for Mom.


It’s a way to share your blog with a wider audience while discovering new blogs along the way. I’m pretty excited to take part in it. I love finding new blogs and learning from others’ experiences, plus I think it’ll help me grow as a blogger/writer to put myself out there. So, here goes with the intro post!

My name is Sara. I’ve loved writing since I was a little girl and kept journals and notebooks full of poems (mostly ones about whoever my crush was that month). I’ve attempted blogging many times, but never found my groove. This blog has had a few hiccups since I started it last fall, but I think I’ve found my niche.

I write about my experiences as a mama. I don’t really fit any label (plus, labels are so restricting!). I’m a little bit crunchy, a little bit funny, a little bit sarcastic and (hopefully) a little bit entertaining. A lot of my posts will involve breastfeeding, healthy lifestyles and mother -to-mother support. Like many moms, I’m constantly plagued by Mommy Guilt, that uneasy feeling that I’m doing it all wrong and my child will end up scarred for life because of the choices I’ve made. Getting my feelings down on paper (or screen) reminds me that I’m doing the best that I can, I’m acting from a place of love, and that’s all my child needs.

imageSpeaking of said child…I have one son, Colt, who is currently 2.5. He is independent, strong-willed, fearless, curious and full of energy. I love it when he wraps his arms around my neck and plays with my hair (something he’s done since infancy). I’m constantly in awe of this beautiful boy I helped create.

At this moment in time, I am a stay at home mom. My husband is in the Air Force and we recently moved back to the states after 3.5 years in England. After a brief spell with relatives in Oregon, we will be settling in Texas this summer (until the Air Force sees fit to move us again). In England, I worked in health/fitness and became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I also have degrees in public health and interests in crafts/creative endeavours.

Find me on Facebook if you want to keep tabs on what happens here!

I’m glad you gave my blog a chance and read through to the end! If you like what you see, subscribe and share. 🙂

Take care!
