A Sassy Escape

Nicky Sassenberg

My soul yearns for a creative outlet. I need to feel the rhythm of music move through me, and the pulse of a dance take hold of me. I need to see in full color, and to share and feel and explore with complete abandon. And that is what this blog will be for me. My outlet. My story.

This blog is for all the lovers, the peace seekers, the explorers, and those who are more open-minded than they are afraid of the world. This is for you.

Thank you to all of our friends, family, coworkers and even complete strangers who have been so supportive of our dream. This is for you.
