Happy Warrior’s Day

I think most of us have heard the quote, “be kind, for you never know what anyone is experiencing or going through”- or some variation on that idea. What I have learned in the last few years that is along the same lines, albeit a bit different is the idea that everyone knows something youContinue reading “Happy Warrior’s Day”

The Unbearable Weight of “Should”

When you become a parent, your world view inevitably changes. In some ways, you’re prepared for that. After all, I don’t think there’s a single parent out there who didn’t receive tons of (sometimes unsolicited) advice from family members, friends, strangers in line at the grocery store, etc. But despite all of that advice, andContinue reading “The Unbearable Weight of “Should””

New Season, New Life

The 2018 season is upon us, and with this new football season comes a new season of life as well for Nathaniel and I.

Mattias came to visit this past weekend, so we headed out to the beach in Pacifica for the day to visit old family friends and enjoy the beautiful weather we are currently experiencing. A couple of these pictures are from Friday at the train station after work, however.

Sunday Swelter

Today I spent most of the day cleaning the apartment and relaxing, trying to keep cool. The Bay was in some kind of pressure cooker- it hit 97 at one point!  This evening, we went to my Grandfather’s retirement home for dinner. It was a night of story-telling, family updates, and great food. On our wayContinue reading “Sunday Swelter”

The Moment It All Changed

In the past year, I have lived in 3 houses, worked 2 different jobs, had 6 different roommates, frequented many favorite bars, and set several goals (some I met, some I did not).  Most of my time was spent with the same people I have known and loved for years. However, what I didn’t realize thisContinue reading “The Moment It All Changed”
