• Celebrating 10 Years of Us

    Today marks ten years since April and I began our life together.  It’s incredible when you think about it.  A decade of living with and loving each other.  And that love is as strong as it’s ever been.  Since we both have to work today, April & I celebrated with an amazing weekend in Michigan City, Indiana.  A weekend completely unplugged!  No cellphones, computers, no nothing.  And it was absolutely amazing! We hiked through the sand dunes, took a walk on the beach along the shores of Lake Michigan, and had a bit of fun playing in the sand.  We froze our butts off, but sharing that experience together was so worth it. A & M – 10 yr. Here’s…

  • Wordless Wednesday: TCOYD in Des Moines

    The trip to Des Moines, IA two weekends ago for TCOYD was fantastic.  The conference was great and it provided an opportunity to spend time with dear friends from the DOC.   And I was able to capture bits and pieces on camera.  The pictures include shots of the diabetes guerrilla art banner created for Diabetes Art Day, shots from around town, and a few fun shots with Little G.  Enjoy!

Early last week, after returning from a trip to Des Moines, I discovered that my driver’s license was missing.  And, as you might imagine, I panicked.   I triple checked my wallet, tore apart my suitcase, and dumped the contents of my laptop bag.  Not there.  Checked the clothes I was wearing.  Still, not there.  And then I made the phone calls.  You know, the calls of shame you make to all the airports and air lines you traveled through in hope that someone might…

  • Photos: Angola Balloons Aloft

    On Saturday, I spent the evening with April and her dad in Angola, IN, taking in the awesomeness that was the 3rd Annual Angola Balloons Aloft.  It’s essentially a festival devoted to hot air balloons. I’ve wanted to attend the festival since it started but always had something else going on.  This year, however, I wasn’t letting anything keep me from going.  Not even the 100 degree temperatures that have scorched the area the last several days.  By the time we got to the airport where the festival was held, the temps were a bit cooler and a nice breeze made it bearable. We only caught the last two hours of the event, but it was more than enough time…
