Meet Sarah

Sarah was born into a military family and raised all over the world, but will always call the southeastern United States home. After graduating from Auburn University with a bachelor’s degree in Apparel Merchandising, Sarah married her husband, Neil, in January of 2009, and they began to make plans to build their life together in Montgomery, Alabama. Little did they know that twins, a job change, and a move further north to Birmingham were in the not too distant future! Sarah and Neil welcomed their fraternal twin girls in February of 2011, and, just over a year later, Sarah and her family moved to Birmingham following her husband’s acceptance of a new job. With Neil’s love of the mountains and Sarah’s love of the beach, Birmingham is the perfect location for them to raise their family and be equidistant from the two places they love the most. 

Meet the Twins

Caroline is the oldest twin (by 1 minute, and don’t you forget it) and is a fan of the Avengers (Iron Man is her favorite), Star Wars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the color green. She is smart and funny, and definitely keeps Sarah on her toes! Mackenzie loves Tinkerbell, Ariel, cuddling with her stuffed animal of the week (these things change quite regularly), and the color pink. She is kind, loving, and has big emotions that make her a great friend, but are hard to figure out sometimes. Both girls will start school in the fall of 2016, and they can’t wait!Sarah's KidsMeet the Husband

Neil is Sarah’s husband and an amazingly talented man in his own right. He is a thinker and builder, and when he’s not working in the IT department at his job, he is building furniture in their garage and planning their next vacation! He is a wonderful father to their girls and very supportive of Sarah’s online businesses. Their marriage isn’t perfect, but Neil and Sarah work hard each day to support one another and love on their kids.Sarah in the SuburbsAbout the Blog

Sarah began her writing career in the spring of 2011 by happy accident. She was in need of some adult interaction during the day while her newborn twins were napping and thought, “Maybe I’ll start a blog and see if I can make some connections.” Lo and behold, there is an entire community of women just like her online. What started out as outreach and support has turned into an entrepreneurial opportunity for Sarah. Sarah in the Suburbs is now a lifestyle blog focusing on family fun, travel tips, and parenting advice. Sarah hopes that by sharing her perfectly imperfect life with others they, too, will feel supported and part of a community when they’re deep in the lonely trenches of early child-rearing. It’s no secret that Sarah is also a huge Disney geek (including the Marvel and Star Wars franchises), and this love of all things Disney has bled over to her other blog, The Mouse and the Monorail, which she co-authors with 2 other amazing Disney-loving friends. 

Sarah has worked with brands like Coca-Cola, American Greetings, Hallmark, General Mills, Maybelline, Chick-fil-A, and many others. Sarah is a member of Collective Bias, Tapinfluence, BlogHer, The Network Niche, Birmingham Bloggers, Alabama Women Bloggers, and several other blogging networks that help her improve her skills as an influencer and allow her to network with other brands and bloggers. She would love to work with your company on future projects or ambassadorships. Please email sarahinthesuburbs@gmail.com for more information and a current media kit.Sarah's Family
