Let’s Talk About Vibes

I live by good vibes. I seek them out and am always drawn to people who give them off. An if you need any, I’m going to do my best to send ’em your way. The reason I’m telling you this is because I’m about 13 months into wedding planning. I still have a few months …

Lessons from a Decade

Long time, no see. Seriously though. It’s been nine months since I really visited this blog, which simply is what it is. I have made goals for myself over the last couple of years to blog more, but I think I always underestimate the difficulty of this for me when my full-time job is, you …

A Few of My Favorite Things: February 2019

(Photo by Paul Bellinger) Happy Monday! Does February feel like it’s flying for anyone else? I can’t believe it’s already February 18. Spring football begins in exactly two weeks for Nebraska and I’m already excited for the work to be done with Hail Varsity with that. In the meantime, I realized it’s been about a …

What I Supported: January 2019

How is it the last day of January already? I know it’s felt like this month has lasted FOREVER (mostly in thanks to the weather), but it still feels like it flew by. Although, you’d think it lasted far more than 31 days if you went by my calendar (in the featured image). Poor January …

Sticking to Sports

(Photo by Paul Bellinger) I recently updated my bio in a couple of places and found myself including the little tagline from my blog: “Sticking to sports, except when I’m not.” I came up with that at some point after the 2016 presidential election when I started to find more and more “STICK TO SPORTS!” …

Book Review: First Two Books of 2019

(Photo via Jennifer Roup/thats_what_she_read) I set a goal at the beginning of 2019 to read 12 books this year. I’ve already read two and am making good progress on my third. That means I probably could have been a little more ambitious with my goal, but that’s OK. I’d rather have been realistic, rather than …

New Year, Who This?

Well, well, well. Look who still has a blog. Honestly, it’s a little embarrassing how long it has been since I updated this. I had the best of intentions in 2018 but I feel the year got away from me a bit. Between losing my job (and returning to my previous job!), football season, life… …

Year two

Another year come and gone. Crazy, isn’t it? Today marks the second anniversary of the accident that changed my life. Looking back on the first year, a lot has changed since then. What hasn’t changed is my appreciation for those around me. My gratitude is as deep today as it was then. I doubt that …
