This morning, you woke up and welcomed 30 as you looked back the past three decades and wondered how time passed so quickly.
When I was younger, I wanted to get as far away from Gainesville as possible, but now, I realize just how much I love coming home.
The long weekend came to close suddenly and without reprieve. With a toosh sore from bike rides, calves sore from walks on the beach, and shoulder sore from throwing the football, it’s as if I need a vacation from my vacation. After another morning bike ride, we made it out to the beach just in […]
A picture is worth a a thousand words, so I’ll spare you too many details and highlight only the good stuff. Our friend Kevin (future Honey Do List extraordinaire) and his wife Nicole traveled from Augusta for a day visit. As fellow CrossFitters with a competitive streak, Kevin challenged everyone to handstand pushups. James followed […]

Last week, I went home to my parent’s house in Gainesville for a night since my brother was home from Georgia Southern. Since he sleeps in until noon (given a choice), my mom and I decided to go garage sale (s)hopping. We hit two sales, but didn’t find much. But we ended the morning with […]
