I like to think of relationships as an epic adventure. Perhaps akin to Homer’s Odyssey, or Iliad–but with less vengeful gods and hungry monsters. Last Tuesday, December 29 2015, I began a new, beautifully epic adventure: one which I like to call the Chameliad. Continue reading “The Chameliad (AKA Boy Meets Girl)”
Three weeks ago today I had the privilege of standing beside my best friend as he started a brand new chapter in his life. I couldn’t have been more proud of Cameron for getting a girl to say “I do” in a white dress. Continue reading “#cmastsquared”
This post has nothing to do about Scar or The Lion King. I was trying to thing of an appropriate title that encapsulated the craziness of the past few weeks and this was the first thing that popped into my head. Thus, a title is born.

Today’s post is brought to you by The Armadillo Advocates: Armored Awesomeness. In Florida, the pests come in different forms. Boars are mean and the birds are harmless–but the armadillos dig holes in your yard.

It’s been almost two months since I’ve posted. I even made a video on my way back from Houghton (yes, while driving) to post as an update on my time at Houghton, but I never got around to editing it…which is a real shame, cause it involved my adventure getting coffee, singing obnoxiously, and almost driving off the highway. And that was ages ago. Sorry for the delay. Life has been cray.
Today, I drove five hours, 30 minutes of which was spent attempting to drive with my knees while eating a Sheetz sandwich. Thankfully, the highway was mostly empty. Today, I arrived at Houghton College to spend a week visiting friends and playing music. Today, I’ve been hugged and encouraged by many of my friends whom I haven’t seen for awhile. Today, I feel popular.
