And the Anniversary Gift winner is…

Okay…so my wife and I are terrible at keeping secrets from one another and can rarely pull off a surprise because of it.  I thought this year I was doing really great.  Key word is “thought”. As our 10th anniversary approached I was going to be in New York City for a business trip and…

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…

the Sunrise, and Sunset

A little over a year and a half ago my lovely wife and I took a trip to Maui.  It was probably my favorite island get-a-way that we have had together because we truly took the time to appreciate the beauty that was around us and I think we enjoyed each other more on that…

St. Croix – from St. Croix

Well this is my first blog post from my phone so I apologize for typos and the short nature of this one. Althought the shortness is probably welcome. My wife and I are in the US Virgin Islands on St. Croix and I wanted to give you some thoughts as we go. So far the…

Tulum, Mexico

My wife and I have a theory about traveling to Mexico…pick a great resort that is all-inclusive,on a great beach and just stay there.  We have only tested this theory twice but Tulum fit the bill better than our first journey which was to Puerto Vallarta.  Our trip to Tulum included 3 other couples which…

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,…

Bad Day…Great Ending

So today was a train wreck of a day…nothing seemed to go right and everything was a struggle.  You have had those days before right?  I worked so several different projects and there seemed to be some kind of speed bump on each one of them…I didn’t seem to have a chance!  Of course I…

St. Croix…Here we Come!

Twist my arm…make me book that trip to a tropical island…go ahead. So given the crappy day that I had and the fact that my wife can only go so long without booking our next vacation, we booked a trip to the Caribbean Island of St. Croix.  Looks beautiful and was a great price so we…
