ABOUT sarah

From Omaha, Nebraska to South Louisiana. I've enjoyed traveling the country for both life & work.

You could say I have a frequent flyer point or two after a lifetime of travel.  Whether it's for a beautiful wedding or a spontaneous trip with my family, I'm pretty much down for any and all travel!

If you're getting married at Disney, I can be there tomorrow.
