Tomorrow I’m entering a new decade of my life. It feels like I was 19 only a day ago, and it also feels like I’ve been 30 for about five years. It’s a very odd duality inside my head at the moment. Since I’m a blogger, and since I have in fact learned a lot […]

I think it’s pretty normal to look at the life Sean and I have and feel some type of way. Some think we are crazy. Some want to know all the details. And some, don’t care at all, they just see us as we are. I don’t have a problem with any of the above. […]
