About Me

Hello. My name is Sarah. I am the voice behind this blog. I was a competitive cheerleader in High School, so I over use exclamation marks. It's just the way I am -- excited! See?
I am wife to Christopher and first time mom to Evie.  She is everything and nothing that we expected.

We've made it through the first year and are loving being toddler parents!

We are proud of our Southern heritage. Not in the way that says "The South will rise again!", but in a way that sees no color, speaks slowly and softly, knows the value of saying Sir & Ma'am, understands that there is an art to making sweet tea and knows that in order of importance it is God, Family and Football.

You can read Evie's Birth Story here.

You can read our Love Story here.

I am also mom to four dogs and two cats. The saying, "Dog hair: both a fashion accessesory and a condiment!" is truer than I'd like to believe in my house.
I am a survivor of Post Partum Depression and Anxiety. Visit my resources tab for some great links and to read my story. Don't hesitate to contact me if you just need an understanding ear, even if I've never talked to you before. No one makes it through this disease alone. We get better because someone stood by us every step of the way to recovery.

I originally started this blog as a way for friends and family to keep up with our pregnancy. It has grown into more. 

We are trying to do the best for our daughter right now, right where we are, with what we have.

I think we are doing a pretty good job at it.

Welcome to our world. Stick around and say hey, y'all!
