sarahmichael A busy Wednesday deserves some levity. This was me Sunday night at the Money & You workshop. I got to help support the final game & had a brilliant time bopping around in this get up. 5d

sarahmichael Many, many years later this is nearly identical to a picture we took in our early 20's. Here's to old, dear friends. 1w

sarahmichael The past couple of mornings have been a bit goofy, so I didn't make it to the beach. I realized I was needing my beach time a couple of hours ago, and dashed down here for some mid-day. #whateverworks #selfcare 2w

sarahmichael I just received a box FULL of all the old slides my dad took of me when I was a girl, all scanned onto a thumb drive. Throwback Thursday must officially now become a "thing," I have no excuse and 100's to choose from. /
This is one of the first ones I looked at. I'm betting this is the homecoming parade though not sure why we 2nd graders have pompoms. (That's Brittany next to me.) /I'm just going to go ahead and call this "The Genesis of Perky."

sarahmichael Because, I got my brother in this life. / Who finds me a replacement cell phone case for my /next/ phone - to ensure there is plenty of sparkle around here at Sparkling Results at all times. / (Originally + awesomely from the fantastic Dana + Anya duo.) / This whole exchange typifies the 'us' of 'us.' ////I love you Jere - we totally lucked out. 1mon

sarahmichael While the Special Olympics in Long Beach is seriously messing with my "executive" parking spaces at the beach, it's pretty cool to see these sailboats every morning. 1mon

sarahmichael ... and the weekly landscaping crew arrival and ensuring "rumble house." Though in all fairness, the official "Rumble House" was when I lived in Astoria, on 31st St right at 30th Ave, which means the subway tracks were right outside our living room window & there was a subway stop 1/2 a block away.
So... every 5 minutes: Rumble House.
This was the view, except for the noise, I actually loved all the different geometric shapes & patterns.
And when it rained... I loved when it rained, we'd get the coolest brakes-on-wet-track flashes of zooming light.

sarahmichael Thank you, Mother Nature, for this most excellent soaking of rain this weekend. I can feel the earth sighing in relief - bring on an El Niño year! We need it. 1mon

sarahmichael A #TBT photo from 4 weeks ago today on Lake Powell, while I'm covered in mud from the Dead Sea (from Miss Meryl) that at this point dried enough that this was the only smile I could muster.
I feel rather vulnerable posting it, as in it, I feel very "seen," by Miss Kim's exquisite eye. She caught a very "me" expression and with it an essence of me that I only bring out when I'm feeling safe enough to be ALL of me.

sarahmichael A helicopter just landed on the roof of the nearby houseboat. We are now in crazy speculation mode about what is up. Bonkers. 3mon
  •   rachh0422 What is it? Emergency? Celeb? Do keep us posted. 3mon
  •   sarahmichael Definitely not an emergency. Best guess is it was a CEO type possibly Silicon Valley. Looked like a party - possibly graduation for his son - and Dad came for dinner. 3mon
