Oz Through Sara’s Eyes: Northwest Outback Trip Part 1

At this time last year, I had just gotten back from a 9-day trip to Australia’s Northwest outback.

Fall Concert Series: Alessia Cara

I drove four hours through a rainy night to see a pop concert, and it was well worth it. I wanted to see Alessia Cara in concert as soon as I heard her song, “Here.” I totally related to her experience in the song: being at a party, but wishing she were somewhere else spending… Continue reading Fall Concert Series: Alessia Cara
