I bought a guitar

It all started in the third grade when I learned to play the trumpet. Throughout school and even shortly after I graduated high school I played that trumpet. Although I wasn’t “the best”, I really enjoyed making music.

Summer Vacation 2015

For our 2015 summer vacation, we reserved a campsite at Harrison Bay State Park near Chattanooga, Tennessee. My folks drove from Green Bay and we drove from Enterprise to “meet in the middle”. I wanted to record each day in the event that we wanted to “relive” the fun.

I have Individual Blue from Blue Cross Blue Shield. It’s a health insurance plan for the self-employed and is a no-frills, high deductible, catastrophic, “oh fuck I just lost my left leg” kind of thing.

Hello Chloe Grace

It happened so fast. One minute we’re watching contractions on the monitor, the next we’re prepping for a c-section. In just 40 weeks and 31 minutes, Tara and I went from expecting to holding our precious little girl.
