Happy New Year!

I don't feel that there could be anyway that I could symbolize the last year in my life more than how I have in this image. I want to say that this last year has been difficult for me, and many others, but I want to express my gratitude to everyone who has helped me along this journey of 2009. I'm excited and think that 2010 will hold many more positive things than 2009 has. Its weird that when I think back on my life that the worst years in my life all end with a nine.... Anyways, 2010 will be a great start to the best decade of my life, I can feel it. I want all of you to be there with me and enjoy the energy that this world has to share! See you all in 2k10!

Met up with Tony this evening to have some Pho after work. I don't eat this often enough. I need more Pho eating friends closer to my villa. You can get it all around town, who's with me??

Light is Magic.

The sky is God's tapestry. We are stuck in a bubble with the ceiling always changing in a beautiful array or colors and textures. We can all find a little inspiration if we just look up from time to time...

Out at 3M today.

Working with Steve shooting some stock for 3M. Its always fun to change things up and do something different for a day or two. 3M always takes care of you as well.

Today was Fun....

Yeah I'm being sarcastic. My furnace went out. I was sitting on my couch thinking it was a little cold in the house and it was 61 degrees! So with it being below zero outside I was a little concerned.... to say the least. I gave my buddy Aaron a call, he works in HVAC. Thank God he was around. After a little bit of trouble shooting and an inch of Duct tape, yes only one inch, it was back up and running! Take a look for the tape in the picture! Couldn't believe it!

Impound Lot.

If you have ever had your car towed you know how big of a hassle it is... Ironically enough this wasn't that bad! I was the only customer in the house and it went really fast! I just didn't like the price tag.... Price check on aisle 7A?

Oh What a Night... Part 2

It started out so innocent.... A dinner party at Michelles then it was out to hang out with Tony. We didn't have a big night planned. We were just going to have a few drinks out watching the UFC fights... Well that turned into my car being towed and cabbing it around town to meet up with my cousin who was in town from Cincinnati. Great seeing you Cory!

Doctors Orders.

I had the craziest ER trip today. My buddy Scott calls me saying he needs a ride to the ER... So I thought to myself, I would want someone to do this for me... To make a long story short, this is a picture of his Discharge Instructions. I've never heard of anyone being prescribed to have sex. Now I have proof. Interesting....

Merry Christmas!

If you are looking at this you can't say I didn't send you a card this year!


I wish I had the correct equipment to show justice to the beauty this was in real life... The light was so beautiful on the newly fallen snow across our habitat.

There is something about being in a snowstorm... Everything is so quiet and muffled. You could almost scream at the top of your lungs and no one could hear you. The erie light that even with the slightest of moonlight could light the night up like the fourth of July. Even with all of this, I still miss California and the ocean... Yes, we will meet again.

Jackson Loves the New Window Too!

This window is just the right height for Jack to climb right in.. He even gave it a christening lick... Haha.

Thanksgiving Back in MN.

There are a ton of things I am thankful for this year, the fact that Detroit always seems to lose, great food every year on this holiday, warm weather,and I love being close to my nephew and family. I am not thankful however for the fact that this is the first year I haven't been able to enjoy pie on the beach staring out into the ocean....

Night Before Thanksgiving!

So the night before Thanksgiving is the biggest bar night of the year. Everyone comes back home and its out to the bar to see old friends that you haven't seen or kept in touch with very much in the past year. If Thanksgiving is showing your thanks for your family, then the night before is for going out with your friends and remembering the old times once again!

Jimmy Johns!

I has been so long since I have had Jimmy Johns! I think it has been since before I moved to Cali that I have tasted the scrumptious mayo covered meat and cheese that the flakey bread encompasses... Yum...
