Sarah and Sarah first met as staff members of their law school’s only feminist legal publication, otherwise known as the “Gender Journal.”  When selected as its editors, the two became fast friends not only because of their opinions regarding social justice, but also because they shared a love of the same guilty pleasures—pop culture generally, Oprah more specifically, gourmet food, bargain hunting, and DIY projects.  After stints working in Big Law and on Capitol Hill, the Sarahs independently said farewell to life in DC and life before kids and returned to their home states to start their most creative jobs to date—beginning and raising families.

Fast forward to present day.


Sarah Stewart Holland lives in Paducah, KY, with her husband Nicholas and two sons Griffin and Amos. Her family is at the center of her every thought when she isn't distracted by the class she teaches at the local community college, her awesome gig at Paducah Life Magazine, or planning her next over-the-top dinner party. Sarah also writes about her passion for her home state over at Her Kentucky and her essays have been featured on Babble and BlogHer. In her spare time (ha!), she loves to knit and watch British period pieces and generally behave like she is 80 years old. You can follow Sarah on Twitter and Google+ and see what crafty project she's planning next on Pinterest


The Other Sarah enjoys sharing the West Coast way of life—sun, sand, and a sense of balance—with her husband and toddler son, the Little Dude. Formerly a lawyer by day and aspiring creative type by night, Sarah now practices the art of motherhood, ongoing interior design, writing and editing, and Bravo TV watching from her home in Los Angeles, CA.  When she’s not cooking asparagus for her son (he eats it by the bunch), Sarah loves to grab lunch at LACMA, search for the perfect French bakery, bliss out at yoga, and drink the occasional mojito. You can also find The Other Sarah musing on motherhood (and life in general) at Moonfrye, Mommyhood to Hollywood, and Raising Boys World.

Recognizing the importance of staying connected and looking for a fun excuse to work with each other again, Sarah and Sarah decided to launch this blog in early 2010 to bridge the almost 2,000 miles between them and to create a virtual community to help them and others navigate the sweet but imperfect adventure of modern parenthood.
