I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

Last weekend I competed in a 28 mile mountain bike race. It was so much fun. I finished in 2:17 hrs. I was hoping to finish before 2:30 hrs, so I would consider it successful. It was the first race I had been in and hadn't ridden a mountain bike in years. I used to ride all the time when I lived in Michigan. My mom did the race last year and invited me along this year. I had been working out every day at the gym, so I knew I was in shape and thought I could handle it. I bought a new bike since mine was about 15 years old. I went out on mountain bike trails here a few times before the race. I definitely think I could have pushed myself a little harder and hope to do it again next year and get a better time. It was a beautiful course.
