When I decided to start “You’re my favorite today” on a whim one night back in March of 2012, I had zero knowledge of anything blog or computer related (the fact that I still do not is beside the point). Honestly, I not only had no idea what I was going to write about, I […]

  • Sue Kirtz - Ahhh, this is a lovely post. I’m running parallel to you with my kids and empty nest. I can so totally relate — except the part about working out. I’m too busy making a permanent butt print in the couch. So glad you’re coming around here more often. You’re still my favorite.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Aw, thanks, Sue! The working out came begrudgingly, but it was either that or buy all new pants haha. Appreciate your support for so many years! 🙂ReplyCancel

Six months ago our nest officially became empty as our younger daughter (Thing 2 for those of you who’ve been following YMFT since the beginning) went to college over 1,300 miles away to chase a dream that required her to attend a BFA program not offered anywhere close to home (or one I was equipped […]

  • Rashelle - Love your post, and the name ‘you’re my favorite’ still works. Good idea to keep it the same, even though content changed, that’s ok. Thank you for putting your thoughts and ideas on the posts. I’ve been reading your material for a long time, I’m sure anything you write about will be super interesting and entertaining.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - I think so, too! I’m actually writing a post about that now … so keep an eye out for it next week! Thanks so much for reading and for taking the time to comment ~ I always appreciate learning that people other than my friends IRL and family read my stuff 😉 !!ReplyCancel

When I was in college in the late 80s I was obsessed with a few things: my sorority (I bled wine and silver blue and rarely wore anything without an arrow or the Pi Beta Phi letters on it from 1987 – 1989); the bagel sandwiches from College Street Deli that I could rarely afford […]

  • Mindy - I love reading your posts, never watched 30 something, but you make me want to rewatch. : )ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Thank you!! It’s always shocking to me when I learn people actually read them, so I appreciate you taking the time to comment! Thirtysomething was like one of the first ensemble shows of a group of friends I ever watched, so I think that — plus the time in my life I was hooked — was the big reason I fell in love with it!ReplyCancel

I know it sounds cliché but I’m having a hard time grasping that in matter of hours it will be the year 2020. Where are the flying cars? Where is my robot maid? Sure, I carry a tiny computer in my purse that connects me to anyone anywhere (although rarely by voice), instantly answers any […]
