I’m Sarah Aileen. I began as an artist, took a detour through finance for a decade, and am making my way back to creative independent.

I love beautiful things and places in all shapes and forms. I especially adore clean, elegant lines, and the perfect beauty of a single thing.

I’m fascinated by people who have found a way to do what they love for a living. I’m always curious about the journey. How did they get from point A to point B? What did that look like? What was the catalyst for making the change from their current path to one of their own making? What were the highs and lows, ins and outs, unexpected challenges, and what are the rewards that make it all worth it?

I haven’t found much in the way of what that journey looks like step-by-step (let me know if you have found or experienced such a thing!), so my goal with this site is to track my journey and share it with those who share the same curiosity and desire. I don’t know what all it will entail just yet, but I know travel (in America) and beauty (nature) will play a large role.

Come along for the ride!

Please email me at sarah@sarahaileen.com to inquire about collaborations, or simply to let me know you stopped by. I would love to hear from you.

P.S. My dog, Lexi, is very social (#LexiTheCairnTerrier on Instagram, @LexiTheTerrier on Twitter) and has her own corner of the site (Musings of #LexiTheCairnTerrier). She has already made her foray into the online world with the first posts on this site. Stay tuned for more silliness from her. Believe me, there’s an abundance of it.
