Singing in the Dark

Ever since I was a kid I have despised daylight-saving time. Sleep has always been my friend. I even remember being excited when I learned I was going to be in the afternoon kindergarten class. At the tender age of five, I knew the gift of a slow morning. My mom, bless her, never made me wake up to an alarm. So for thirteen years she experienced the joy of coaxing me and my angry self out of bed. When I went away to college she was sad to see me go, but also slightly delighted she was no...

How to Make Good Memories Without Grumpy Side Effects

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. We’re on the cusp of all things holiday and fun. The festivals. The fairs. The pumpkin patches. And the promise for more parties and holiday spectaculars just around the corner. It’s the kick off to a magical—if not insane—season, made all the more magical—and insane—with kids. Not more than a few weeks ago, I was reminded of how magical/insane this time of year is…. Read the rest of this post at...

Hi! I’m Sarah

Hi! I’m Sarah, wife to Rodney, mom to Asher and Pace, and writer—although I’m still trying to figure out how to do all three of those things. Sometimes I like books more than people, and all of the time I like French fries more than salad. I live in Georgia but I dream of the mountains.
