Hey there!ย 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 appreciateย each and every one of you that drops by to read my blog and follow my shenanigans.ย You. Are. Awesome.
