This is me, this is who I am

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

I am a newlywed. I am a daughter, sister, and friend. I am a student. I am an accountant. I am a proud puppy momma. I am a God lover and picture taker. I am a bit silly, and sometimes serious. I love to laugh. Gosh, I love to laugh.

That is me, Sarah, and WELCOME to my blog! I sure hope you will stay awhile! This is my space to document my life as a newlywed to this handsome hunk. Isn't he adorbs?

We live in this little house...

...with these little pups. Ok, I lied (you just met me and I am already lying to you!), they aren't little, but they will always be my little pups.

So here is the dish on the deets above.

I married my prince, Chris, on June 16th, 2012 (check out our wedding video here!!). If that doesn't scream newlywed, I'm not sure what does. I am the daughter to two of the most loving and giving parents anyone could ever ask for. I am the sister to the world's best brother and I was blessed to get my sis-in-law, Lauren, as a package deal with Chris. I have had the same best friend since the third grade and I am currently getting my master's degree in business administration (I know, it is hard to contain your excitment when you hear about that exotic degree!). By day I work as a tax accountant and by night I am a wife, student, and puppy momma. I love, love being a wife. Yes, I was that child that planned my wedding by age 7..ok age 8, but who's counting?!

I recently lost my Meme in August. She was my pride and joy. I inherited her wedding ring and proudly display it on my left finger. Everyday I look at it and think of her and her sweet, sweet smile. She was my first grandparent to go, but she left me with my Granddad and other two grandparents and I couldn't be more blessed to have them in my life. It pains me to think that she is not here anymore. I am still coping. I had a breakdown last week during Thanksgiving. Chris assured me it was ok. God bless him.

I started this blog as a way to keep our family and friend's in-tha-know about what was happening in our totally-awesome-and-whirlwind newlywed life. We have been DIY'ing (check out our headboard!), and painting, and just loving every moment of this thing they call marriage. After buying our house in April, I have been decorating like a mad woman! Things are coming together and we couldn't be happier.

Life as a newlywed sure isn't perfect, but it is perfectly imperfect with the love of my life. I hope you stick around, and click around. Email me at or comment below if you have any questions, comments, or just want to say hi! I always love a good afternoon hello, don't you?
