I'm Sara, A MERRy, MESSY mom of 4!

I started My Merry Messy Life in 2011 as a way to be able to work while staying home with my kids. I studied journalism and marketing in college, so it was a perfect fit for me! I worked during naptimes and in the evenings. Looking back, I don't know how I had the energy but I guess it was because I love what I do!

I'm married to Kevin, an engineer, and in early 2011, we moved from the USA to Germany seeking adventure, travel, and new opportunities. It has been a wild and challenging adventure, traveling around Europe with four kids and integrating into a new culture and language. For more on our lives here, check out my other website and YouTube channel, My Merry Messy German Life.

In this picture, we were at Europa Park, which is the European version of Disney World! We had SO much fun!
