Hello! I’m so happy you are here. I’m Sarah – a wife, mother, writer, and lover of beauty, inside and out. I currently live by the beach in Southern California with my interior designer husband, enthusiastic 7-year-old son, and sassy 3-year-old daughter. (She likes to dance. Actually, we all do.)

I started this blog in 2005, and for the first 8 years, happily wrote about several facets of my content life. Then my health took a nosedive in 2013, and everything I thought I knew about life kind of blew up in my face. KABOOM. So…you know those people who talk about dark times being the worst AND the best thing that ever happened to them? Yep, I’m one of them. My eyes have opened to a whole new way of holistic living and wholehearted loving, and although it takes steadfast commitment, it’s a beautiful thing. However, don’t get me wrong, I still have my days.

I love that I’m here. I love (slowly) learning to accept and love myself, flaws and all. I love exploring my spirituality, and surrounding myself with joyous, creative people. But you know what? I also really  love shopping at Madewell, faking a rosy flush via cream blush application, and creating the perfect (no-I-really-was-at-the-beach-I-swear!) hairstyle. Because it’s all about balance over here, peeps. So let’s go to Sephora. Or discuss The Untethered Soul. I’m totally down with either.

I hope you will hang out for a bit, and please feel free to drop me a line at sarah@whoorl.com.
