A guest and a giveaway!


Dear life,

Introducing.....Sarah from  Little Penelope Lane.  She is an AMAZING lady and I am blessed to call her friend.  She is a pioneer to me...her oldest daughter has Spina Bifida like Kumaka....so I learn a lot from her.  And now...without further ado.... take it away Sarah!


Hi fabulous "Dear life...from a mom of boys" readers.  So grateful to be featured on Tracy's amazing blog.  I am so lucky and so blessed to be able to call Tracy "friend".  What a joy she is in my life.

Little Penelope Lane started over two years ago and I had no idea that it would take me to where I am now. It has been such a fun adventure and the best part has been meeting so many amazing people along the way! I enjoy making bows and hosting boutiques, however, my favorite job of all is wife and mother.  


I am married to my college crush and together we have three kids who melt my heart every day! 





Our oldest daughter, Katie was born with Spina Bifida (to read her story clickhere) and I noticed early on when I took her to all of her doctors, hospital and therapy appointments wearing a bow she received extra attention. I also noticed that other children her age would often comment about the bow in her hair first and then ask about her wheelchair second. To me, the bows seemed to be a buffer.  We always welcome the opportunity to share Katie’s story and the bows seemed to open the door to that! With two little girls, our bow collection only grew and grew! Then one rainy day two years ago, the girls and I sat down to do some crafts and and I made a bow, and then another and another! I had so much fun making them that soon after I started up “Little Penelope Lane!”  and the rest is history! 

Thanks for taking a little stroll down Little Penelope Lane
XO, Sarah

  9. I love the black poppy barrette. So cute. I was brought over here from Sarah's blog. I came to know her because of Katie. I have an 11 year old son with special needs as well. And what also intrigued me about your blog is your 5 boys. I only have 3 boys--adding no more :) But was excited to start reading your blog and then a giveaway popped up. So fun :)
