Yummy Mistakes

Every once in a while, mid-task, an idea will pop into my head along the lines of “ooo what if I do it THIS way instead”. Such an idea took place on Sunday night, on a hot griddle, while preparing protein pancakes for the week. What if I just made a big-ass pancake all at…

In Places

A few years ago I started a photo series called “In Places”. I’d be somewhere, spot a neat shot or have an idea pop into my head, then set up my phone in some handy way (or ask somebody to take it) and get the picture. Most of them are on my Instagram, some of…

Thank You Places

Once again, and not for the last time, I’m lining up in a darkened hallway that runs along side the elevated audience at the theater. Looking forward, the silhouettes of my co-performers are illuminated by the stage lights. The play has started and our entrance moments away. I say nothing in this scene aside from…

A Plant Named Harry

It’s been a bit of a transitional period for us, as far as the house goes. As with any couple there’s been some ups and downs as far as how to decorate the house. What exactly do we want our living space to be like? What are we able to do vs what we want…

Onward

I’m not gonna lie (mostly cause I can’t but also cause its bad form), things have been a little crazy lately. Between switching to a new job, trying to maintain a general level of sanity, leveling up my life in general, and travelling for a mix of work/funerals/leisure, it’s all been a bit difficult to…

Opening Day

I’ll be the first to admit I’m not the biggest Baseball fan. For the longest time I’ve rarely caught a game on TV or in the stadium, although that’s mainly because I haven’t had any actual TV service since 2009, nor money to purchase tickets. But I never fell completely out of love with it.

A Cold Cure

****I am in no way a health care professional. Simply a dude sharing his experience with a particular method to ease pain. If you are having any issues at all, please consult a doctor or other professional!**** I’m not really entirely sure whats happening. It’s one of two things, and either way, it helps. For…

A Little-Big Breakfast

There’s just something about food that makes me feel…magic. Sure, the human body is programmed to react in certain ways to certain things so that we can sustain ourselves etc……but there’s something different there for me. The way things are put on the plate, the shape things end up being by the time they make…

The Rise of Hobo Johnson

The way the internet works just is what it is at this point. When something goes “viral” you can’t escape it. Sometimes though…this is a good thing.

Mr. Pillowman

In 2014 I started my first independent blog called “Dad on The Mic”, where I focused on being a young parent through both blogging and podcasting. I no longer post on that site, but I decided to repost some of those memories on here. Enjoy!
