Happy 10 years, babe.

10 years ago today, I met my wife. It was a blind date set up by a mutual friend. And I didn’t want to go, but I did because I was told she’d was really hot. And she was. But, surprisingly, she was equally awesome and we hit it off for the next couple ofContinue reading “Happy 10 years, babe.”
