Sara and her husband Matt (sweethearts since they were just 16) got married in 2007, and since then have welcomed four beautiful children (Sam in 2008, Cooper in 2010, Nora in 2012, and baby Adam James in December 2015). A born-and-raised Iowan, Sara received both her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees (in Spanish Literature) from the University of Iowa. After teaching Spanish at every level (from Kindergarten to college!) for nearly 8 years, she fell in love with the City Moms Blog Network and, along with Kaitlyn, launched Iowa City Moms Blog in 2013 and Cedar Rapids Moms Blog in 2016! Since then, she has transitioned to a full time work-from-home mom, and could not be happier about this change!
