Ciao! I’m Sara Button. If I could virtually give you a firm handshake here, I would.



The Bumblings of Miss Button began as a way for me to stay in touch with family and friends during my first long stay overseas in 2007. I was studying abroad in Orvieto, Italy, which I still feel is my Eurohome. Rome is a close second. Ironically, I titled it The Bumblings of Miss Button years before anyone actually called me Miss Button. I’m a sucker for alliteration.

On July 4, 2012 I took off for my first gap year and returned stateside in March 2013.

The goal of this blog is simple:

  • Share with you all whatever discoveries on the journeys I make, be they down the street from the home where I grew up, or on foreign soil. Discovery’s definition is flexible and fluid.
  • Hopefully to hear from you! I’m always excited and open to hear about other peoples’ travels, recommendations and lessons learned on the road.

Some highlights from my travels, pre-gap year:


My bumblings here have only recently reached more than a handful of family members and pals bored during torts class (you know who you are ;-).

Just in case you wanted to know a couple things about me, here are 3:

  1. On the Myers-Briggs Personality Test, I am an ESFJ. From what I can tell, it’s a pretty accurate assessment.
  2. I have a non-closeted love of reality shows, including but not limited to: The Sing-Off (what’s UP, Pentatonix!), The Voice, Millionaire Matchmaker (I know it is terrible, but I can’t look away!). And does Jeopardy count?
  3. I’m a ginormous Italophile. Yes, I do speak Italian and miss it all the time.

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy my bumblings, and if you have any questions for me, please feel free to contact me!

  1. As a fellow alliteration lover, I’m obsessed with the name. So glad that I found you through the gogirl site. Looking forward to following along on your adventures!
