I Forgot…Forgive me

So yesterday after dinner I remembered that I forgot to do my workout for the day.  Oops!  I had gotten home later than usual and got wrapped up in all the things that need to happen at that hour.  Prepping dinner, cleaning up after a toddler, getting dinner ready for and feeding the little girl, […]

Where I leave my heart

It’s a sweltering summer Sunday and my daughter has gone down for her afternoon nap.  She just recently started crawling and is super inquisitive and also super exhausting (but in a delightfully good way).  The weekends are a joy because I get to spend time with my wife and daughter. But Sundays are always bittersweet […]
