I didn’t marry my wife.
She didn’t marry me, either.
Don’t get me wrong. We’re married. But we didn’t do it. No, the minister didn’t do it, either! We were married, but by the only one Continue reading →
Close your eyes for a second and imagine this:
It’s a beautiful, sunny, summer day, with blue skies and billowy white clouds. It’s warm, but not too hot just yet, about a perfect 85 degrees. It’s early in the morning, where the breeze is pleasant and the quiet air is filled with chirping birds, and a calm stillness that belies the day ahead. Continue reading →

We often pack up the holiday right away. Maybe we leave the lights up on the house for a little longer…like July…because they just look good right?
