Back in 2013, I started this blog as a senior in high school partly out of pure boredom, but apparently also because I was not a very cool teen. I mean, let’s be real, having a food blog as a 17 year old does not scream “hip”. Luckily for me, I totally dgaf-ed, because here I am four (almost five!) years later! I’m not going to link to my first post, because it’s embarrassing as all hell, but feel free to go looking for it; you might get a kick out of how teen-Sara talked, and also I had a totally cool signature line at the time, wow!
Anyways, I guess I’m just feeling a little nostalgic, because again, here I am four years later, and I’m graduating mother-f-ing college on Friday! I honestly can’t even believe four years has already passed. Plus, on top of graduating, I am also leaving to travel Europe for 4 months, aaaaand I have a really big project I’m working on that I’m hoping to share with everyone soon! I’m busier than I’ve ever been, but I’m so happy and excited for the future! Get super excited, because SSL is going to Europe, and I will be posting mad pics on the blog and Insta!
For my senior pics, I wanted to stick with a “winter, spring, summer, fall” theme, because idk I guess it’s symbolic, but also I love living in a place with such distinct seasons. For these photos, I went back to the hiking trail near Nevada City I told you guys about a few weeks ago. Before we took pictures, we hung out in the city, eating lunch at South Pine Cafe, which is the cutest little restaurant that serves super fresh, healthy food, and I’m in loooove. I’d be totally fine if they expanded to Reno. Also! We hit up The Curly Wolf which my brother calls the “Harry Potter” coffee shop because of its dark, semi-gothic style. I’d 10/10 recommend taking a day trip to Nevada City if you live near the area, because it’s just so cute, and of course the Independence Trail hike is amazing!
Thanks for sticking with me all these years. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for SSL and life ahead!
