Sarah and I have known each other for…well, forever. Our lives have always just organically intertwined…
We lived across the street from each other for a time growing up; her parents and mine becoming close friends, while she and my brother, Ryan, were inseparable. (A decade later, her best friend dated him for a long time.) We worked together ages ago, and she then married into one of my favorite families…cementing us as faux sisters-in-law.
Though we had all of this connection spanning decades, it was becoming mothers around the same time that really bonded us. There’s nothing that brings people together more than having a shared experience that is both wonderful and terrifying – especially when you are brave enough to admit to each other that you don’t know what the hell you are doing.
There are so many things I could say about Sarah, but here’s what I love most – she is the most wonderfully kind person, AND she has FIRE. She will stick up for the people and the ideals that she holds dear (which are many!).
This is not to say she goes around looking for arguments. She is a peace lover. An idealist. A Bernie supporter. I’ll tell you one thing, though. I’m grateful to have her in my corner.
Though she be but little, she is fierce. – Shakespeare
