I Will Not Be That Guy – Cats In The Cradle

Family Fall Day

Apologies in advance for a sappy post. You’ve been warned. If you know anything about me you know that my family is the most important thing in the world to me. I don’t blog about family stuff all that much these days partially because I’m a bad blogger and partially for privacy and security reasons for my kids. I’ve got three boys who mean everything to me. I’ve got a Wife who is so far … Continue reading

39 And Doing Fine…

Family At Margaritaville

As has become my tradition (at least since my 35th birthday) I wanted to take a few minutes to sit down with my computer and put some thoughts together. If you’re interested at all, you can look back at the last couple of years worth of babbling: Thoughts At 35 Thoughts At 36 Thoughts At 37 38 And Counting (My Blessings) So, I’m another year older and I suppose another year wiser. I’m certainly another … Continue reading

38 And Counting (My Blessings)

Family - Tami

I’m sitting here at Panera on a Saturday morning as is my normal routine, working on stuff for clients, catching up on email, etc. What’s a little abnormal is that it’s my 38th birthday.  And while I’ve got a HUGE list of stuff to get done, I’ve got to take a minute to put some thoughts down here on the blog. I started this “tradition” when I turned 35 and I’ve continued it with Thoughts At … Continue reading

He’s Just A Little Boy – #EveryField

He's Just A Little Boy

I saw this float across one of my social media timelines the other day and I feel compelled to share it.  Apologies to who originally shared it… I can’t for the life of me remember and I’d love to give you credit  I’m sharing it because it’s got a great message and I wanted to make sure that message gets heard.  I also wanted to have it available to me at a moments notice (via … Continue reading

Thoughts At 37

Family On Marco Island

Not sure how it happened, but we’re through July and as I flip the calendar I realize it’s once again August 2nd, and I’ve turned another year older.  Sadly… the immortality pill hasn’t been discovered in this past year :).  I’m absolutely floored by the number of folks that have taken time out of their day to drop me a note on Facebook, Twitter, text, etc. to wish me a happy birthday – thanks you … Continue reading

More Lyrical Brilliance From Sammy Hagar – Kama

Marching To Mars by Sammy Hagar

There’s a bunch of stuff going on in the world and in my personal life right now.  My heart goes out to those affected by the bombings at the Boston Marathon yesterday.  During these times I often turn to music to get me through.  Today my iPod shuffled to an outstanding song called Kama by Sammy Hagar which I just had to share.  Per Sammy, the word “Kama” is the Sanskrit translation for “love”.  He wrote the … Continue reading

Thoughts At 36

G's Pre-K Graduation

Another year has passed and as the calendar flips to August 2nd I’m reminded that no matter what I tell myself, I’m not immortal.  Today’s my 36th birthday.  I’m once again blown away at the number of people that have gone out of their way today on Facebook, Twitter and in person to wish me a happy birthday… thank you all!  Last year, I wrote this post reflecting on my 35th birthday and I’ve realized … Continue reading

Thoughts At 35

35th Birthday (3)

Today’s my 35th birthday.  As folks tend to do on these “milestone” birthdays I find myself being a bit introspective today.  I’ve been completely overwhelmed by the well wishes by my family, friends and co-workers.  Fair warning… this is going to get a bit sappy. I’m 35 today… she’s 35 tomorrow.  I’ve often said that I was put on this Earth one day before her cause I knew she was coming.  She keeps me in … Continue reading
