Then I looked at him and realized he is not little anymore and I am already wishing I had five more minutes of him being little. Read More
Hey, did you know there was this holiday, it sort of is a big deal in June. It is called Father’s Day. Well, in the midst of our family move, my office move, being away from home practically every weekend, I somehow “overlooked” the significance of it. And for that I am sorry. Read More
6 years we gave this city, and it was a good run, but now we are heading back to small town Wisconsin where we can raise our country loving boy surrounded by family and friends. It wasn’t an easy decision and it isn’t to “improve” our careers but it certainly is the right decision.
