Sara was born in Colorado Springs, and lived here her entire life until she attended college at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. There, she earned her degree in Journalism and Political Science. Sara met her husband, Luke, in the summer of 2008 while working at Wag N Wash Healthy Pet Center, although they didn't start dating until 2011 - after Sara had graduated from college and Luke had joined the Air Force. They married in 2012, when Luke was stationed in a small town in West Texas. Shortly after moving to the Lone Star State, Sara started her career in local television. She did everything from running the cameras, to producing the five o'clock news, to creating marketing campaigns for local businesses. Sara's daughter Cora was born in 2013, and Sara got her first taste of being a full-time working mom while living over 600 miles from her own parents. Luke's Air Force enlistment ended in the summer of 2015, so they high-tailed it back to Colorado Springs. Now, Sara lives near Old Colorado City and works in the marketing department of a law firm in Downtown Colorado Springs. She loves spending time with her family, cooking, biking, photography and playing with makeup (that’ll happen after working in television in Texas).

These Are the Good Old Days

We’re working really hard, but it’s easy to keep our family as our focus. My job isn’t overly demanding, and my husband is at home with our kids all but 12 hours per week. Our children aren’t involved in a bunch of extra-curricular activities because they’re one and four years old. Right now, my children love nothing more than spending time with me and my husband, and that’s pretty cool. It's also very fleeting.

Getting Married: What You Sign Up For

When my husband married me, he didn’t know he was signing up for a wife who throws fatigue-induced tantrums because our nearly-one-year-old son still doesn’t sleep through the night! He didn't know his wife would be the pallbearer at my grandfather’s funeral. He didn’t know he’d have to love me through piles of laundry and dishes and coupons clipped with good intentions but no follow-through.

It’s Easy to Say Life’s Hard

I remember when I was pregnant for the first time, everyone would say, "Being a mom is so hard, but so worth it." Do you know what that kind of advice does for a mother-to-be? I'll be bold here and say it does nothing. The word "hard" is thrown around like confetti when it comes to parenting. It isn't incorrect, because being a parent IS hard, but the term "hard" has become so overused, it's practically meaningless.

Where’s the Mop? A Working Parent’s Tale

Traditionally, dads get a bad rap for not knowing these little, or sometimes big, details. I think a lot of people attribute it as a male trait. Maybe that's true to an extent, but I also think it's simply because they're often working in a different building than home!

A Breast Pump at the Office: What Works for Me

Leaving your sweet bundle at home or dropping them off at daycare can be heart-wrenching. And that isn't the only difficult aspect to making your post-baby debut in the office. After each child, I was overwhelmed with the idea of using a breast pump at work.

Packing a School Lunch: Make It Fun for You and Your Child!

I enjoy putting together homemade Lunchables, so I can choose higher quality meat, cheese and crackers and also pack some fresh fruit as a side. I also switch up sandwiches by using different breads like tortillas, bagel thins and croissants.

Breastfeeding Away From Home

Two precious children have made me a Mama: a three-year-old girl, Cora; and a six-month-old son, Freddy. For several reasons, my time breastfeeding Cora was short-lived, and I never had to breastfeed her outside...

Maternity Leave and Playing Stay-at-Home Mom

I've never been a stay-at-home mom.   When I had my oldest, I was working full-time. I was only able to take six weeks off of work, then started back at my job and I've been...
