So I turned the big 3-5 this year. I’ve never been age conscious but this year I felt a little weird. It’s only five years from 40 and 40 is like a milestone or something. You’re older, wiser and….older! I never thought that I was going to make it past 30 when I was younger, (I’ve always had a fear of dying young) so this year I gave pause. Read more →

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and we are starting to prep for it here at the house. We have to clean and grocery shop and tomorrow I have to cook a couple things because I am splitting the cooking with my mother in law this year. My oldest son has a cold so trying to get him to rest is quite tricky, and he is getting cabin fever even though he has been outside everyday, just not as long as usual. We usually have Thanksgiving at my mother in law’s house but she wanted to switch it up this year because of her sadness since the loss of her dear mother.

But first on the agenda, a man I’ve been wanting to write about for some time, to recognize his good deeds as they do not go unnoticed. Adam Van Bavel. He is local to Baltimore, MD and always has a lot projects going on. I met him years ago through mutual friends, and we keep in touch thanks to social media. Read more →
I met Eric a long, long time ago back in my early twenties. My roommate at the time, Stella, was good friends with him and they were both from the same hometown in Ohio. I felt like I knew him before I even met him because of all the stories that she would tell me, and because we would chat on the phone sometimes (usually when we had been drinking). He was a fun, adventurous guy and there was always a story with Eric. Read more →
Today was a horribly sad day. I attended the funeral for one of my friends, Erin Durkee. She passed away last Monday evening from an allergic reaction that later led to cardiac arrest. She was 31 years old. Read more →
