  • Happy Birthday, Suki

    Oh man, another birthday post. On Saturday Suki hit the big eleven. The onety one. Normally I would say I can’t believe it’s already been another year, but this time it actually feels like a long time. We’ve done so much the past year, and I hope to do even more during this next one.…

  • How I Accidentally Went Swimming on Purpose

    How does one accidentally go swimming on purpose? Well, keep reading. It starts with kayaking. No, I didn’t accidentally fall in. That would still just be accidentally swimming. Nope, this story has more to it than that. But like I said, it starts with kayaking. We were having a blast. It was a bit windy,…
