Hey everyone! My name is Sarah Herman. I am a wife to a super hot dude, a stay at home Mommy to two beautiful babies, a Jesus lover, a sometimes hairstylist, and a soon to be counselor. I love to be with my family, take pictures of people, write, camp/hike, drink lots of caffeine, and travel whenever I can. In this blog, I will talk about everything from wife life, mom life, everyday life-the fun stuff all the way to the dark stuff; like surviving a big loss, anxiety, night terrors, and depression. It won’t be all rainbows and butterflies, but it will be real. I most definitely don’t have all the answers..heck, I probably don’t have any answers-but if nothing else maybe you’ll just learn you are not alone. Eventually, we may even realize we aren’t just merely surviving, but we are truly living. I hope to bring some light and understanding to help people see my grief process from the inside, in hopes they may be able to help someone close to them whose struggling too. You see, not long ago, I lost my Mom. She wasn’t just my Mom, she was one of my best friends. She was the person that helped make all of our worlds go round. I will share some things I have gone through and will share new things as I go through them. This is all completely new to me; like everyone else, I have had both happiness and heartache. Some heartache was caused because of my mistakes, and some came from nothing I personally did. However, when I lost my Mom it opened up a whole new world of heartache I was thankfully, thus far, too naive to understand existed. My life has been frozen in this surreal fog since the day I got the phone call from my Dad that something horrible had happened. The life I once knew is gone, and we are all just trying to figure out where we go from here. I am nowhere near close to being healed from losing her, whatever being “healed” even means. So, this blog will be a front-row seat of my journey to rebuilding my life and discovering what our new normal is. It will be raw, and it may even be hard to read at times. In my experience though, pretending life is all cupcakes and rainbows never did anyone any favors. Bare with me as the blogging world is a whole new world for me. Love, Sarah
