“Me Time”

Fall has grown to be my favorite time of year. Even though where I live I don't get to witness the leaves changing color or feel the crispness in the air as temperatures dip. I do get to see Venus in the fall night sky nearly every night. Maybe fall is special to me because it's... Continue Reading →

A Perfect Day For A Ballgame

The sport that evokes more nostalgia among Americans is baseball. So many of us learned to play this sport as children. Baseball originated before the American Civil War (1861-1865) as rounders, a humble game played in sand lots. The first professional league was born in 1871. By the beginning of the 20th century, most large cities... Continue Reading →

Friday Night In Seattle

I took a Friday off of work yesterday then took a flight to Seattle for the weekend. I'm in town to attend an Ed Sheeran concert tonight. After connecting in Denver then San Francisco I finally made it to my destination just after 5pm. After checking into the hotel and changing clothes I hopped into... Continue Reading →

Day 6: Amsterdam!

Wow! There aren’t words to describe the feeling Amsterdam gives me. It’s wonderful, beautiful to look at and the weather is splendid. I can’t believe I’ve waited this long to visit. It’s so hard for me to visit a place twice when there’s so much of the world out there left to be seen but... Continue Reading →

Parts Unknown:White Chocolate

Maybe it's it the moving day jitters, you know the buyer's remorse that we're all too familiar with for those in real estate. Except this time the rolls were reversed and there was a panic that sent everything into a tizzy because one of the desks I ordered was the color "white chocolate". The theme... Continue Reading →

World Cup Wednesday 2018

It wasn't my average Wednesday.  I started the morning waking up earlier than usual to meet friends at a restaurant to watch Mexico play Sweden at 7:00 a.m. (my time). I was instructed to arrive at 6:30 a.m. to secure in spot in line. I arrived to a handful of half-asleep fans decorating the outside... Continue Reading →

The Journey Begins

It's just over 48 hours since Curt left en route to Nepal. It was dinner time on Sunday for me, Tuesday morning for him. He messaged today noting that he lost a day somewhere. The messages from him started coming in with plenty of updates filled with lots of excitement, compassion and enthusiasm. I'm going... Continue Reading →

My Boss My Friend

  It seems like just the other day that I came to your office and interviewed for a "caller" position. The truth is that nearly 8 years have passed since then. Your job posting came to my ears through a friend, even though the job didn't sound very glamorous it sounded like the most bountiful... Continue Reading →

Time Gone By

It's just before 7 pm on a Tuesday night as I sit patiently awaiting my niece's name to be called so she can walk the stage in recognition of  successfully completing middle school to move onto high school. A sideshow projected the images of 8th graders to show how they progressed through the school year.... Continue Reading →

A Night at The Moxy

I spent the night in Phoenix last night to attend an event at the Wells Fargo Arena at Arizona State University. I stayed at a boutique type hotel that is part of the Marriott hotel chain called The Moxy. The Moxy is decorated in a retro style with lots of modern flair. I've really been... Continue Reading →

I’m So Fly I Neverland

I admit that there are times when I'm a Disnerd and this weekend I was a Disnerd! Upon entering Disneyland anyone who walks under the bridge and reads the plaque "HERE YOU LEAVE TODAY AND ENTER THE WORLD OF YESTERDAY, TOMORROW AND FANTASY" and doesn't feel like a kid again once stepping foot on Main...

Easter in Disneyland

The crowds at times were plenty but not unbearable. Don't get me wrong there were plenty of people visiting. On top of the regular theme park visitors there were an equal amount of people visiting for Disney's Food and Wine Festival as well as the Disney Easter Egg Hunt Extravaganza. My point is there were... Continue Reading →

Mount San Jacinto

Another road trip to sunny California filled with great music, miles of asphalt and this time not so many of the usual junk food snacks because of a low carb diet I'm on. I swapped the Flaming Hot Cheetos for plain almonds and any soft drink for water and it wasn't so bad. About halfway... Continue Reading →

When Life Was Easier

I remember to this day a time when my parents forgot about me. I believe I was in the 3rd or 4th grade so probably 8 or 9 years old. I had decided that I wanted to be part of student council. Student council serves to engage students about learning about democracy. I chose to... Continue Reading →

The Women Of Black Panther

I rarely do this but I'm going to nerd out a bit over Black Panther. Typically I'm not a Marvel or DC fan because (with exception of Deadpool, Thor and Guardians) I feel there are so many movies, characters and plots going on that I tend to get overwhelmed with the useless (so sorry) information....

Say CHEESE!

The chaos ensued on my drive into work via a group text message frenzy then the chaos carried over into my office. Marissa, I didn't have a black sport coat so I wore navy. Do you think he'll mind? Me: Nah, it's fine. It'll look black in the picture. (I'm always the optimist) A TIE!... Continue Reading →
