Growing up, the thought that my parents weren’t married didn’t really change my life. Sure, we went to my grandparent’s church a couple of times and I wasn’t allowed to eat a special cracker, but they loved each other. That was good enough for me. I was seven years-old when they broke up. It didn’t […]

Posted by on November 22nd, 2013, under SNAPSHOTS

Missing Pieces

Posted by on October 30th, 2013, under NOTEBOOK

A few readers have asked for the story of how my wife and I met. We’ve discussed aspects of it here and in interviews with legitimate websites/journalists (unlike the site you are now on). But it all started with the Internet. So let’s travel back in time, shall we? The year was 1993 and I […]

“At least I got the fridge restocked and organized today. #pregnantladypriorities” -Avara   At least?! That’s the best thing ever!!! If I managed one thing every day and felt good about my life, it would be making sure I had a fridge that somehow approximated this majesty. In fact, I think I should take over. I’ll […]
