About Me

I had originally decided I wasn't going to do one of these "about me" pages. But I always look for them when I go to other blogs, so I figured maybe I should put one together.

I'm Sara, just Sara, no exciting nick names here.

I'm married to a wonderful man named Jonathan. (J here in blogland because I'm too lazy to type out Jonathan all the time. And he is Jonathan - not Jon. Not to me anyways.)

We live in Nova Scotia, Canada in the same "suburb" I grew up in. We're actually about a 5 minute drive from my parents, and less than 15 from his parents. I have a fantastic relationship with my parents, we're very close and I'm still very spoiled. I have a good relationship with my in-laws as well, though it started out a little rocky.

I have one younger brother. I sometimes joke that he's my hero but there's more than a little truth to that. 10 years ago (when he was 17) my brother was diagnosed with leukemia. He was one of "lucky" ones and is doing great now. But when I think about what he went through... It wasn't a good time for my family, but I think it made us closer so I try to focus on that.

I graduated from Mount Saint Vincent University in 2006 with my Bachelor of Education. I'm still working on paying off my student loans, (I made my last payment in February 2015!) but I'm not currently working in my field. I'm a front end manager with a local grocery chain. (Basically I'm in charge of the cashiers and the customer service aspect of the store.) I  really enjoy my job, but you won't hear a lot about it here.

We are hoping to have children some day, and have been trying for several years. We've had some testing done and the doctors can't find anything "wrong" with either of us so right now we're just waiting. We both firmly believe that God's timing is perfect and that if it's His will we'll have children when the time is right. For now we've got two fur babies to love and spoil.(Update! As of August 2015 we are on an adoption journey. The ball is rolling and we're excited to see where this journey takes us.)

Both of our pets were adopted from the SPCA. Our cat Sydney came home with us in August 2009 and our beagle Daisy came home with us the same week we moved in to our house in July 2011. They are both spoiled rotten and I can't imagine my life without them in it.

I'm a ringette playing, book loving, reformed Diet Coke addict who loves scrapbooking, watching TV, and spending time with my husband and family. I'm a disaster in the kitchen but I'm trying to work on that.

Anything else you'd like to know? Just ask!
