We made a pit stop in Rock Hill on our way to Myrtle Beach for the Thanksgiving holiday. The initial reason for this detour was to see our friend Alex, in town from Denver, but an additional reason got tacked on yesterday -- I had to fill in as host for a trivia show. This … Continue reading Year 2, Day 275
My fortieth birthday is looming just over the horizon, and several months back Jaclyn made it clear that I needed to keep this weekend free of commitments. She offered no information beyond this. I've been distracted with work and general life lately, but I've still done a little detective work with regard to this weekend's … Continue reading Year 2, Day 263
After seeing a rousing success with the event last year, we held another Dipsgiving at our house today, again inviting a bevy of rogues and ne'er-do-wells into our home to provide and partake in a bounty of Thanksgiving-inspired dips. Once again, the attendees did not disappoint. Much more mobile this year than last, Miles couldn't … Continue reading Year 2, Day 257: Dipsgiving 2019

However, if there's … Continue reading Year 2, Day 215
We went to a friend's place for a cocktail hour tonight, and I'm saddened to report that Miles has clearly inherited my wallflower tendencies. As usual, once he got comfortable, he was hamming it up left and right (again, like his father).
Tonight was the long-awaited wedding of our friends Alex and Andy. It was a great time for everyone, but Miles...well, he clearly enjoyed himself. Held in an old church that was renovated into a living/event space, the wedding was honestly one of the most fantastic nuptial ceremonies we've ever been to. And yet, given an … Continue reading Year 2, Day 188
