Sarah loves to garden with her partner Colin and their two little girls on their urban farm, and enjoys seeking quiet moments for sketching and painting, making small bouquets of flowers and herbs, or reading. She loves to explore new places, and enjoys anything ocean, friend, food or eating related, and yes, she does enjoy the gloomy gray days a bit more than the hot, sunny ones.
