Hi! My name is Sara.  I’m blessed to be a wife, mother, and writer – all of which bring me great joy.

I’m married to this handsome guy, Keith, who I met on match.com (yes it works).  He is obsessed with mid-century furniture and vinyl records. To quote Angelina Jolie, we drive each other beautifully crazy.

I’m mom/stepmom to four amazing children.  My stepdaughter, Ellie, is 19 and my stepson, Evan, is 18. They’re smart and good looking. Wish I could take credit for that, but they’re not my genes. =)  Two little boys keep me running from morning til night. Bennett is 7 and is in second grade.  Caleb is 6 and in first grade. They are my reason for breathing.


I’m thrilled to be a published author. I co-authored a book, Malibu Nanny: Adventures of the Former Kardashian Nanny, with my best friend of forty-two years, Pam Behan.  A free ebook short version of this book was downloaded over 8 million times, and received extensive press.  It is available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback format, Nook, and iBook.  You can purchase it here.

My second book – my memoir – is titled FootNotes: Discovering God in the Fine Print FootNotes will be available as a free download in November 2015.  If you would like notification when the book is available for download, please email me.

I love writing. It fulfills a need to create and connect. My passion in life is to inspire women to live a life full of joy by finding happiness in everyday moments, and to embrace an attitude of gratitude.  This blog is about joy, happiness, faith, and family.

I’m just an ordinary gal, living an extraordinary life because I choose to believe every moment I have is a gift from God to be cherished.


Hope you enjoy my blog!
