Hello! I’m Sarah and I live with my husband Jose and our daughters Emma and Charlotte in Houston, Texas. This site is a mishmash of all the things in my life, from the serious stuff like motherhood and career to more casual things like quilting and running.
I began working for NASA as a 19-year-old undergrad in 1997 and joined the agency full-time after finishing grad school in 2002. From 2006-2011, I was a flight controller for the space shuttle and I’ve written a number of things about what it was like to work in Mission Control. These days I’m a Safety Engineer for the International Space Station.
I started sewing in 2011 and spend a lot of my free time these days making things — mostly quilts, with the occasional bag or clothing item thrown in. I’m a back-of-the-pack runner and triathlete and do a lot of races. I also like to travel when I can!
I’ve been blogging since the late 1990s, although it wasn’t called “blogging” back then. “Saroy” is a combination of Sarah and what used to be my middle name. You can follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
