SSarah is a 30-something-year-old Minnesota native who is married to a very kind and exceptionally patient Irishman named Barry. Sarah, Barry, and their 15-year-old rescue pooch named Lady welcomed baby number one (a girl!) into their little Irish-American-Rottshepanese family in January of 2016. Sarah's journalism experience includes several years as a freelance writer for a handful of regional publications, including the Rochester Post-Bulletin. Prior to the arrival of baby Catherine, her parenting credentials included keeping a dog (the same dog!) alive for the better part of two decades and creeping on BabyCenter's "January 2016 Birth Club" message boards. When she's not changing diapers or repeating "please don't put that in your mouth" x100, Sarah enjoys reading, DIY projects (especially those involving spray paint), and watching murder shows that make her husband uncomfortable.
