i’m sarah and i am thrilled that you stopped by my corner of the [blogging] world! i started this blog in january 2011 as one of my new years resolutions. after reading healthy living blogs for over a year, i thought i could add something to the community. i am passionate about learning (as a graduate student, that works out in my favor). right now, i’m learning how to balance my busy grad student with healthy living, being a newlywed, and all of my other interests. whether it be a new recipe, cooking technique, organizational tool, workout move, or random fact, i make it a goal to learn something new every day. this blog will follow my life and the (hopefully) interesting things i learn each day!

now, a little about me:

i’m a 25-year old graduate student at the university of wisconsin getting my phd in nutritional sciences. i am on track to graduate in august 2012, and then who knows what’s next for me! i grew up in a small town in wisconsin, right on lake michigan. after high school i went to washington university in st. louis to get my bachelors degree in biology and psychology. i married my amazing husband, brad, on august 27, 2011. we also have two dogs, capone and jake, who we spoil rotten – you’ll see them pop up a lot on the blog! i stay busy reading,  cooking, spending time with friends, sometimes working out, and blogging!

thanks for reading and i hope you enjoy what you see.

feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
