Charlie, Today you turn ONE YEAR OLD! What?! Just yesterday you were our little baby and now you’re a big kid! It seems as if you’ve just gotten here but at the same time, as if we’ve never known life without you! I’ve been wanting to write something to you on here, especially, to keepContinue reading “Happy birthday, best friend!”
Last year, on my 32nd birthday, I decided to start recording a video. More specifically, I’d heard about an app through my cousin, called 1 Second Everyday. The plan was to end it on my 33rd birthday and try and get as much cool stuff in it as possible. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. But then…roadblock. This pastContinue reading “310 seconds. Give or take a few.”
…this little blog came about. Or something like that. Doesn’t four score mean 40 years? ‘Cause that’s not technically right. But it sounded good… Anyway. Seven years ago – in 2009 – I started a blog. It was my third or fourth attempt at one – I had a blogspot in college, a blog onContinue reading “Four score and seven years ago…”
If you’ve read this blog…ever…you know that me and happiness go back and forth. I continuously try for it and have gotten so much closer in the past few years in so many ways. So, for a while, people kept telling me “You need to read this book, the Happiness Project.” Never one to shyContinue reading “31: The Year of Happiness (or something like that)”
When I started thinking about what I wanted to do for my 30th birthday this month, I had so many different ideas. I tossed around doing something for others – doing 30 things for others or something nice for 30 people or maybe just a chill dinner with family. It never once crossed my mindContinue reading “Straight (paint)ballin’”
Besides the first one, obviously, but I don’t remember that one. Oh, what am I talking about? Birthdays. ‘Member how I turned 30? Well. It was kind of a big deal. So.. I think I’ve been surprised maybe twice in my life. And usually it’s just been a matter of someone showing up somewhere thatContinue reading “Best one yet? I’m thinking yes.”
That headline alone should get some clicks, don’t ya think? It’s not what you think. Or maybe it is. I don’t know how your brain works. Today I turn 30. Holy shit. I thought that was old, once upon a time. And I still feel like it’s old every once in a while. But IContinue reading “Dirty 30”
Bonus points if you get the reference in the title. I’m pretty sure there are random robots in three different countries (Germany, France and India, I think, based on my stats) that search daily for the phrase “moth flew up my nose.” That’s weird, right? Even weirder that it leads them to me? Well..nah. InContinue reading “I know about pop-u-ler. Lar.”
My favorite boy turned one on Friday, and he’s too cute for just one pic.
Grandma: “Is this an XL?” Mom: “You don’t wear an XL” Grandma: “Anyone can wear an XL, that’s what’s good about it!” Wise words from the 91-year-old on her birthday when she wanted to make sure her shirt would fit.
