Welcome

Brunette Me

Welcome to my website, friends. Come in and sit down. Have a cup of coffee or a margarita.

This is where you’ll find the musings of a 42-year-old mother of two boys living in Fair Oaks, California. This is where I explore the issues of being a woman, a mother, a wife, and a professional editor and writer. This is where I write about living, loving, and engaging fully in family life and the world around me. I let my hair down here. I learn new skills here. I strive to be a better human being here. And I tell the truth.

We are educating our children in the Waldorf philosophy, but we also have our feet firmly in the world. We are aiming for a peaceful, balanced family life, where all members’ needs are considered and met. We are gloriously imperfect, walking our path together and pouring our love into every step.

I am a HUGE FAN of:

  • breastfeeding
  • cosleeping
  • babywearing
  • health care reform
  • marriage equality
  • green living
  • homeschooling, although it is not our choice
  • Waldorf education
  • elimination communication, or ec
  • playing in the earth and water
  • making things by hand
  • CSA and organic foods
  • tolerance
  • peace
  • science
  • reading
  • life-long learning
  • making mistakes
  • artistic exploration and skill building
  • painting and photography

Please read for a while and leave me a comment. Come back often. I love, love, love comments. I do my best to reply to everyone. This blog is a labor of love born out of a need for self-expression, but it has also brought me new friends from many lands. If there’s some topic you’d like to see covered here at Love in the Suburbs, please drop me a line.

  • About Sara

    Thanks for visiting! I’m Sara, editor and writer, wife to Ian, and mother of two precious boys. I am living each day to the fullest and with as much grace, creativity, and patience as I can muster. This is where I write about living, loving, and engaging fully in family life and the world around me. I let my hair down here. I learn new skills here. I strive to be a better human being here. And I tell the truth.

    Our children attend Waldorf school and we are enriching our home and family life with plenty of Waldorf-inspired festivals, crafts, and stories.
