    Fabulous, Sarah! I love this site. Love the story of the garbage burger. That Anna B – she’s the best. Most everyone I know would have been freaked out about the brief sojourn of the trash. Not her! She goes straight to what matters: taste. Can’t wait to read the other stories. You are well on your way….

    Dear Sarah, I so enjoyed our conversation last night at the NEA tent event, and I am so impressed with all the things you’ve done. I was involved in publishing myself a few years back, and dream to do more….
    I sincerely hope that our paths will cross again soon.
    With friendship,
    Neta
