7 Little Months Later

7 Little Months Later

It’s always funny looking back at the last time I posted, to try and read the mood.  I can honestly say I had no clue back in January that anything like what we’ve seen would or could happen. But today I don’t want to look back on pandemic and race riots and murder hornets and …

That’s a Wrap

That’s a Wrap

Our poor tree barely survived the holidays.  It’s unbelievably dry in Colorado, and despite near daily watering, he finally just gave up. I always seem to start a post complaining about how busy I’ve been- so let’s not do that this time. Sure, the holidays and travel and birthdays and buying a house really just.. …

Where does time go?

Where does time go?

It’s been almost two years since I sat down to write anything other than in my own private journals.  While doing that gives me a place to vent and milestones to look back on, it’s all stream of consciousness and isn’t really a tool I can use to organize my perspectives or share it with …

There But Back Again

There But Back Again

As you may or may not know, Paul and I just got back from vacation.  From outsider’s perspective it might seem that we take a lot of them, but the reality isn’t quite so rosy.  I travel a lot for work (like a LOT A LOT) and due to that he can travel for free …

Resolve

Resolve

I’m a little late to be talking about New Years resolutions I think. Don’t care! Everyone has an opinion about them; they’re good, they’re bad, they’re dumb, they’re useless, don’t wait to start something… the list goes on. All of these are fair, they’re all subjective, and it all boils down to one thing: Do …

Perspective

Perspective

Perspective is a tricky thing at the best of times; it’s hard to gain, hard to use, and easy to lose. Even harder is to know when you’ve lost it until after the fact. We have a Sunday morning tradition of breakfast burritos and walking on the beach to talk about our week. It’s an …

Being in the Moment

Being in the Moment

This is a hard topic to write about for me. I’ve written something like 9 drafts of this post and erased them all as they wander off topic faster than I can type. For the sake of this writing I’m going to talk about just one aspect of being in the moment, and if I’m …

Round and round we go

Round and round we go

Everyone knows the old quote about those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it right? While the sentiment is close did you know that apparently that isn’t the actual quote?  Thanks to a admittedly slapdash Google search the quote is most likely attributed to writer and philosopher George Santayana. In its original form it read, “Those who …

I am tired

I am tired

Life is behind (as per usual!) but when isn’t it? A new job for me. A new career for Paul. A new household member  (Selena). Our 5 year anniversary together / 2 year wedding anniversary. The good news is we’re settling back into a routine just in time for my 39th birthday.  How the hell …
