My name is Sarah, and I'm a full-time mom to one tiny human (Cecily) and a fur baby (Riley). I live in Lansing with my Air Force Veteran husband, Chris, and work as a news anchor for the local FOX affiliate by night. I am a black widow to houseplants near and far, love trying new recipes (haven’t sent anyone to the hospital yet), and have no fewer than 99 craft projects (and 98 Pinterest fails) in progress at any given moment. My life is a comedy of errors, and I'm inviting you along for the ride. You can follow me at “Running on Coffee, Chaos, and Creativity” for all my latest musings, craft projects, and how-to videos.
