Hey there!Β I’m Sarah and I’m tickled pink to have you here visiting my blog. I’m a wife and mama, living in a 1980’s fixer upper with my husband and three sweet chickadees. I started this blog in December 2015 to share my budget-friendly DIY projects and the journey of renovating our home. When I first stared out I named the blog Little Vintage Nest. And while I loved the name, after a few years it started to feel impersonal and too narrow. So in late October 2018, I started the daunting process to rebrand the blog from Little Vintage Nest to simply my name, Sarah Joy Blog which is what you see today. You can read more about that transition here.

I love sarcasm, copious amounts of coffee, and Target runs. But family is everything to me. And there’s truly no place I’d rather be than at home and cozy with my people. Everyday I’m so grateful to God for giving me these blessings and lots of undeserved grace on an hourly basis.

Thank you so much for being here! I truly appreciateΒ each and every one of you that drops by to read my blog and follow my shenanigans.Β You. Are. Awesome.

  • Spent the day in jammies, snuggling my sick kiddos + watching all of their favorite movies 😍 I hate seeing them sick, especially since we’re only a few days into the new school year, but I sure do love these simple days when they need me the most.

  • My little kitchen island is one of my favorite things in our home + I always get so many questions about it. It was actually made from reclaimed barn wood & we’ve had it over 10 years now 😍😍 I bought it when we moved into our first home & it’s been with us ever since. I kinda have an emotional connection to it nowβ€”it’s been through so much with us. Do you have furniture like that?? I’ll probably still have this island in my kitchen when I’m an old granny! πŸ‘΅πŸ»β€οΈ
