Women Connect: Meet Me (:

Like Becky, I'm having trouble starting this blog post so I suppose after writing, erasing, and rewriting to do it all over again, I might as well just jump in and forget about this being perfect. So if you're new to my blog "WELCOME" and if you're not, well then just read and enjoy (: Maybe you'll learn something you didn't already know! :P

I'm Sara. It's so very nice to meet you! I've grown up in the same southern town in NC all of my life. It's one of those towns that everyone complains about but no one seems to leave. I'm a third grade teacher. I'm the daughter of the most amazing set of parents in the world. They brought me up in a Christian home and taught me what love was all about. I'm a sister to a wonderful brother and an amazing sister. I have the same four best friends that I've had all of my life. My camera goes everywhere I go and if you wander over to my blog often, you'll be bombarded with lots of pictures. 

This would be me and my hubby. His name is Kevin and he's not only my husband, he's my best friend, confidant, #1 supporter, and my very own comedian. We were married on May 21, 2011. I like to think that we're still newlyweds; though I'm not sure people would classify us as that. But we're still learning about the ups and downs of married life and just taking it one day at a time so I feel like the term still applies. 

This is where we call home. We purchased our house two months after we got engaged. That was over 2 years ago and we've just finished getting it decorated and to my liking. What can I say? I love to decorate but I can be a bit picky :P One of these days, I'll get around to doing a home tour to show you ladies the inside. 

This is Rimshot; though he's better known as Rimy. He's our precious furbaby. We've had him since he was eight weeks old and he's brought so much joy and laughter into our lives over the last two years.

In May of 2013, we'll be welcoming our little Tarheel to the world. {Yes, we're big UNC Tarheel fans} We are so excited and anxious to meet our new addition though I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't nervous. We'll find out if Baby Holt is a boy or girl in 9 days! If you're pregnant, a new mama, or a mama of many years, all comments, advice, and stories are welcome here (: 

I initially started this blog as a place to jot down my thoughts. At some point, I changed the name of the blog to reflect mine and my hubby's memories that we made because I was terrified of forgetting them as they were replaced with new ones. As time has gone on, my blog has morphed from not just being about mine and the hubby's memories but also about our lives in general. I like to share our house projects, diy ideas, recipes we've tried, what we've done on the weekends, etc. 

Well that's a bit about me and this blog. I hope you'll come back again soon. Feel free to leave me a comment so I can go and read about you (:
