About Rachel

“I have found that if you love life, life will love you back”

– Arthur Rubinstein

Hi Y’all! I am Rachel Sload Johnson. Thanks for stopping by! I began Sun Hats and Suitcases to express my love of travel, life and all things worth sharing!

I love meeting new people and have always wanted to find a way to connect with more people then I can physically reach, so welcome to my Travel and Lifestyle Blog.

I hope you enjoy your time here and feel free to drop a line because I would love to connect with you! I mean, isn’t that what life is all about? This world we all live in is big – and if you ask me it is important to cherish every place you go, every memory you make and every person you meet.

Stay tuned, because life is what you make it and I plan on making it a good one!
