MLB All-Star Game…great trip!

So I am behind on blogging…for sure.  I get so busy and then my thoughts slip my mind.  My wife had a great post about our recent trip to the All-Star Game on her blog (onpinsandneedles.net) and I wanted to share my thoughts as well. I was so surprised when Kami told me that she…

New York City

So last week I got to do something that I really never even considered a possibility in my professional or personal life.  I organized and helped with a commercial shoot for a client inside Grand Central Terminal in New York City.  It was a great experience working with a great videographer and actor in such…

Opening Day – One Day Later

Well yesterday was a big day for my family…we are baseball fans.  I even got a “Happy Opening Day” text message from mom!  We have always been baseball fans and love it when the season starts.  It means months of our favorite sport and it means the weather will be getting warmer!  Both outstanding things…

Super Bowl Sunday

The unofficial national holiday is once again here!  This is the time of year when we get together with friends, eat snack food all day, drink beer, hope for a good football game and anticipate the strange commercials.  We should all get Monday off after the Super Bowl. So this year we get, for me,…
