On Marriage, Expectation and Dirty Sinks

I haven’t written much about marriage in the last 6 months. Honestly, I’m not always sure what’s appropriate to share or how soon after something happens. So I err on the side of caution. But there are great things happening in my marriage. I’m learning a lot about what it means to be a man. […]

You Become What You Behold

In my experience, weddings come in spurts. I know about 10 people that have been married within the past year, including myself. In these waves, I get my fill of weddings and then some. What is cool is to see how each couple decides to plan their wedding. Some are very informal (like we did) […]
