About Sarah

Hi, I’m Sarah, and I believe in leggings as pants, and I’m passionate about athleisure. I love shopping at Costco, and I am always on the hunt for my new favorite thing. Everyday I eat a big salad out of a mixing bowl, train or teach a group exercise class, and, of course, wear leggings.

I am passionate about creating community, building deep connections, and the power of creativity. I’m an ENFJ, so being with other people is my favorite things. I love making new friends in line at Harris Teeter or shopping at Athleta (I’m a brand ambassador at the Tysons Corner, Virginia store, and I’m always there, so come say hi!).

I live in Northern Virginia in a suburb outside of Washington, D.C. with my husband and our three small children. Unlike most people in D.C. area, I’ve lived here almost all my life. Also unlike most people, both my parents and my in-laws live in the Northern Virginia area.

I’ve always been a writer, and I love to write personal essays the most. I started writing in a Lisa Frank spiral notebook, and I ended up turning that love for essay writing into a blog. I started blogging in 2009 because I was just starting out in my adult life, and I wanted to connect to other people in similar circumstances.

In 2014, I started podcasting as a way to connect with other creative people. Since then I’ve recorded over 200 episodes. I interview guests each week about their creative journey, how they got to where they are now, the challenges they’ve faced along the way, and what living their best life means to them.

I’m passionate about building community, making deep connections, and the power of creativity. I believe great things happen at the intersection of passion and purpose. I love hearing from podcast listeners and readers, so please, shoot me an email! You can reach me at sarah@bagley.org. I’d love to hear from you!
