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 third grade in the fall of 2019, and they can’t wait!
Meet the New Kid on the Block
We recently learned in March of 2019 that we were expecting again! This time, it is just one baby! Our little fella will be joining our crew in early October of 2019! Check back in the coming months as we post more about him and his journey into our lives.
Meet 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 his own software development programs, 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.
About 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), so sharing that love online has helped her find “her people.”Sarah has worked with brands like Coca-Cola, Pampered Chef, Alamo Rent-A-Car, Pigeon Forge Department of Tourism, Visit Mississippi, Chick-fil-A, and many others. Sarah is a member of Collective Bias, Influence Central, BlogHer, The Network Niche, Massive Sway, Megaphone Community, and several other blogging networks that help her improve her skills as an influencer and allow her to network with other brands and bloggers. Sarah is currently a freelancer for Traveling Mom and The Beach is Calling, a Gulf Shores/Orange Beach Tourism blog. She would love to work with your company on future projects or ambassadorships.
