About Sarah

Sarah, the obsessive project tackler and blogger behind Return to Sender, is a diehard New Englander with a penchant for mid-century through 1970s vintage, all things involving (dec)organizing & DIY, and a love for cooking, baking and eating. Return to Sender started in 2010 as a plus-size fashion blog that subsequently evolved as Sarah evolved to the lifestyle blog it is today.

Sarah has a BA in English and an MA in Literature/Creative Writing and works for an independent literary press in several capacities - including as the managing editor of their online literary magazine. She lives with her wonderful computer programmer husband in a quintessential New England cape with their three little dogs and enough vintage mushrooms and owls to fill a very bizarre museum.

Sarah’s Current Favorite Things:

  • Planners & stationery
  • Home decor
  • Cookbooks
  • Organizing & cleaning
  • Cooking, baking, & kitchen gadgets
  • Yoga, hiking, and fitness
  • Gardening


About RTS

Return to Sender is a lifestyle blog that features anything from DIY crafts, home projects, and recipes to my personal trials and tribulations as I stumble through life as a nearly 30-something homeowner that still feels like she’s 17. Regular features include PlanIt!, OrganizeIt!, cookbook reviews, DIY/homeowner adventures, and recipes. If you’d like to collaborate with Sarah and Return to Sender, please send an e-mail to
