from the weekend: getaway with friends

cayucos beach // sarah sherman samuelOn Friday we drove up the coast to Cayucos to meet some friends and share a little beach rental for the weekend. They live in San Francisco so Cayucos worked out perfectly for us to meet halfway between our two home cities. I’ll share a bit more of the trip once I gather up the photos (you can see a few more here). We had the best time enjoying the small town pace and catching up with old friends. Hope you had some time to re-charge as well. x

from the weekend: labor day

labor day weekendHope you guys had a beautiful three-day weekend. Unfortunately, I spent most of mine working but it wasn’t so bad since I am pretty excited about most of the things I’ve been working on (one of which I will share about tomorrow with my first ever video project!).

I also was able to squeak out some time for brunch, a quick shopping excursion to General Store, and a walk with the dogs. I also started putting together a post of our Utah/Arizona/Nevada/California road trip (top right is Rupe jumping off a boat in Lake Powell).

Happy Tuesday!

from the weekend: work, walks, & brunch

instagram sarahshermansamuel weekendI spent a lot of the weekend working but still made sure to fit in two of my favorite weekend activities, Saturday brunch and a Sunday walk by the water with Rupe. Do you guys have any must-do weekend rituals?

Hope you had a lovely one! xo

from the weekend: back to cabin

We made it to the cabin yesterday just in time for our nightly sunset walk. No one was around except the fireflies who were making the beach grass sparkle up and down the waters edge. Summer in Michigan is soo good.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

from the weekend: hospital stay

04.08-weekendRupert had to go into the hospital for surgery last thursday. It was a scheduled surgery that has been looming over his head for some time so at least that part is over. He is now on the road to recovery and is looking good but at this point is still in the hospital so, I spent my weekend taking care of him while he is on strict bed rest, hunting down healthy non-hospital food, and trying to act as a nurse the best I can. (even though I am as squeamish as you get with these kinds of things!) If all goes well we are hoping to get busted out of here today!

Thanks to everyone for your support and prayers.

from the weekend: party party

12.17.12 weekendThere is nothing that feels more like the holidays than when you fill your home with your friends for a little Christmas bash, and that is exactly what we did this weekend. I felt so blessed to have our friends over to share in lots of holiday cheer and shrieking laughter (seriously, I still don’t have my voice back).

We have been in LA for almost 6 years now and while my husband can literally make friends in an instant, it usually takes me a little more time to develop a close kinship. Many of my closest friends are spread across the country, so while we were dancing around, smileboothing it up, I couldn’t help but be filled with gratitude for the great California based friends that have come into my life over the years. It feels great to find your tribe and even better to share your home with as many as can fit through the door.  Happy Holidays you guys!
