Celebrating Our 4-Year Anniversary

Today marks the 4-year anniversary of me "defining the relationship" with Maryland. After a tumultuous two days at the MVA, we started on this path that I've largely not regretted (except during Mardi Gras week each year when I question why I'm at work, not making myself sick on bloody marys and king cake.)

Beyond Everything that Isn’t

In the last three months, I’ve traveled to Van Buren, AR; Santa Monica, CA; Long Beach, CA; Newport Beach, CA; Laguna Beach, CA; Hilton Head, SC; Pittsburgh, PA; and Fayetteville, AR. Before the summer's out, I will have gone on four additional trips. It’s been a busy time full of wide eyes, laughter, and reflection. ...
