My name is Sarah. I live happily ever after in a life that is so much better than anything I ever planned, with my husband Jon, our TWINS?! (it must always be typed thus) Etta and Claire, our two puppygirls, Ollie (Olive) and Bess (Bessie), and a cat, Tinycat, in Little Rock, Arkansas.
I only recently decided what to be when I grow up, having spent years torn between getting a PhD in literature and opening my own cup cakery (I even had a name picked out). I ended up deciding to pursue my passion for literature, keeping my cooking as a hobby, and I am a graduate student in the English Lit MA program at the University of Central Arkansas. My long-term goal is to be a college English professor.
I blog about things I care about, including: parenting, sustainability and environmentalism, slow/ethical food, following Jesus/spirituality, gardening, cooking, sewing, feminism and gender issues, poverty, hunger, health/disease, social justice, peace, pet parenthood, marriage, my adventures in public transportation, politics, and the funny and poignant in everyday life.
About the name of this blog: Yes, I know I spelled “buffalo” differently than it is traditionally spelled. This is because the name of the site, “Ernie Buff-lo” is exactly how I said the name when I gave it to myself as a small child. B-U-F-F-L-O.
Just a note: everything written on this site is mine. I don’t mind being quoted, so long as the quotes are attributed and a link back to my original post is provided, and so long as entire posts aren’t taken wholesale. Sharing in the spirit of adding to, taking issue with, or commenting on things I’ve written is welcome, simply reposting my content is not.

All opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone, and if I talk about a product, it’s because I want to. Currently, I do not accept compensation that comes with strings attached or require me to write about something or give a positive review. Any time I have received compensation or a freebie in connection with a post, that content will be marked and that relationship fully disclosed. I believe in openness, honesty, and authenticity, which are the standards for my life and my site. If you would like to contact me for any reason, you may do so at erniebufflo(at)gmail(dot)com.
