    I started this blog just over 3 years ago! I can’t believe the experiences it has given me and the people I have met through Not Your Plain Sarah Jane. I’m inching my way to 10,000 followers on Instagram which is amazing. I know it’s not a big deal to any of you reading this,

    Here I am feeling old…my baby turned 6 on Saturday and I don’t know if I’m okay with that {and then here I am wearing overalls like I’m 15}. The days were so simple when he was a baby. We had our nap/snack/play schedule and while that felt like a lot then, it gets more
