This is a question I have attempted to address head on in several past posts. But now that I am blogging here less frequently and spending all of my blogging energy on Beauty and the Biker, I wanted to leave a post up for a while that would spark comments and hopefully a vibrant discussion. […]

Losing you has been quite the gain…

May 23, 2012

We escaped this weekend – 15 minutes up the road from my hometown, beautiful Athens, Ohio – to the Nelsonville Music Festival. Benjamin and I have been to nearly every one. The first when he was just five months old. It was less than a month after I had left his father. We were there […]

Kissing in front of the kids (gasp).

January 24, 2012

I know I will get blasted for this one. But, whatever, bring on the hate. This is reality, this is love and this is modern parenthood. We both put our children first and care about them more than anything in the world. What’s the most amazing of all is how much we have all fallen […]

New year. New job?

January 14, 2012

Three years ago this May I quit my day job. Some of you called me crazy, but most of you were cheering me on. I was “crazy” I guess. I left a solid career at a solid advertising agency during a recession to chase a dream of working for myself. Why? Because I was tired […]

I need a wife.

September 11, 2011

A very good question.

January 10, 2011

Had to pull out this fantastic comment from Sara to my last post. “Does it bother you that John is probably reading all this right now? That’s the first thing I thought of when I read your post about the break up. Do you sometimes find yourself writing things in these past few posts for […]

From Break Up Land

January 6, 2011

The one thing I absolutely love about owning a Web design, SEO and Social Media business is the variety of people I meet and interact with every day. First, there are the three guys in my office. Their humor throughout this entire thing has been incredible and I don’t feel alone in the least. However, […]
