"I was born, raised, and spent most of my life in Richmond Virginia. In 2008, I moved lock stock and barrel (2 PODS actually ) to Damariscotta Maine. All because I fell in love with a man I met online - yes, it's true. In spite of a pair of failed marriages, I took a leap of faith. Faith in love, hope, romance. I jumped and haven't looked back. (If you're interested in the full story, I wrote all about it for Vibrant Nation. http://www.vibrantnation.com/our-blog- circle/sarah-gayle-carters-journal/ I still post stuff there when the spirit moves. Meanwhile I paint. And cook. And hang out with this wonderful man it took me so long to find.
