What's up, Valley? I'm Sarah J! So excited to be here and proud to call Yakima, Washington, my home. Been all around the world and I have to say we are incredibly blessed to have FOUR gorgeous seasons and such an interesting valley to live in! With more and more happening I'm super pumped to get the opportunity to share it with you. When I moved back to town about nine years ago I ran into my high school crush and we've been together ever since! Through the ups and downs, I hope you all find a core group of people to call family blood -- or not. Because besides the music that drives us, man those around us do, too! :) I grew up on Salt N Pepa, TLC, Eminem mixed with Destiny's Child and Fiona Apple. I enjoy a lot of music genres, a good beat makes me dance often, I LOVE to sing along to ... a lot of songs and clever lyrics make my day! Currently watching The Santa Clarita Diet, I'm a lover of "Grey's Anatomy" and getting ready for my third and -- fingers crossed -- successful gardening season. #plantkiller If you know of something cool going on or want to chat, I'd love for you to reach out to me, cool? Cool! :) Oh, and as of just a few days ago I've lost 50 pounds over the past six months!!! Aaah!! I have a private support group that is for all of us food lovers out there that are just trying to #getitrightgetittight. New body, new job and a whole new outlook, so let's get it!! Thanks for stopping by and looking forward to seeing you soon.
