About Me

Hi there! I’m Sarah, a 30-something mom of 3, and since August 2013, a young widow. I am passionate about helping others, the environment, and above all else, enjoying time with my children. Thank you so much for visiting my blog!


I started this blog about 7 months after my husband passed away suddenly from bacterial meningitis. It happened just one month after his 30th birthday. At the time, our twin girls, Charlotte and Violet, were 19-months-old and our son, Will, was 4-months-old.

Needless to say, that catastrophic event drastically changed my life. Nearly 3 years later, and I am still floundering in the waters of being a young widow and a single mom with 3 very young children.

When I first launched this blog, it was simply to help catalog and organize my chaotic thoughts. I had hoped to possibly connect with other women out there in a similar situation, inspire other widows, and find “mentor” widows to inspire and motivate me!

Since then, it’s taken a few twists and turns as I’ve evaluated my passions and grown into this new life of young widowhood and single motherhood.

It’s lead me to the ultimate goal of this blog to inspire others! I’d love to be able to provide the inspiration that would encourage people to make a difference in their own lives as well as for others!

So as this blog progresses, topics will revolve around grief and widowhood, children and parenting, and of course, making a difference! Thanks again for stopping by!

    Thank you for creating this site. I am in a very similar situation to you and I needed to find someone anyone who could sort of kind of even begin to get what this feels like. Its not like divorcing a person so other singles don’t get that but its not just being a single mom. Dealing with the grief and floundering through each day with great kids when you want to fall apart. I even toyed with starting my own blog…not like yours exactly but just coping with the monotony of each day. SO…THANK YOU for just being you and being amazing!

    You’re such a strong person, an inspiration. I love the picture you included in this post–your husband lives on in those beautiful children. God bless you 🙂

    My husband passed away at the age of 35 from a heart attack. I was (and am) 28 and we have 3 children. The oldest was 9 (now 10), the middle was 6 (now fixing to turn 7) and the baby (our only girl) was 10 months old she is now almost 18 months). I was so lost (and still am) without him. I just found your site and will be back to read more. Thank you for sharing your journey with us!

    I don’t know how you do it, I came across your blog and read your story. I’m in tears for you now. You are such a strong woman. I have a hard time doing this alone when my husband is away let alone can’t even imagine being a widow. God bless you and your family. I hope that you are doing well! Sending positive thoughts your way!
