The latest addition to my desk -- and my favorite so far -- is a new metal print of both kids from #ParaboPress. (The #Batman #PopVinyl is a close second.) #deskdecor #metalprints

Ten years ago today, I took Erin to Veterans Acres with full intentions of asking her to date me. And I was afraid. 
I was afraid that she was perfect for me. She was fun and adventurous and thoughtful and kind, and I was afraid she was too good to be true. Nothing in life is perfect. Nothing comes without a hidden cost. 
And while I tried to be a cynical realist, I melted when I looked at her. She radiated perpetual joy. In the days that we would talk on the phone or text, I smiled this goofy, stupid, love-struck smile that I just couldn't hide. 
So I went for it, for her. I was either setting myself up for absolute ruin or the best thing in my life. 
@littlee22, I love you.

Breakfast for dinner with this flavorful accent. You know it's a classy bottle of maple syrup when it's a cork top. #breakfastfordinner #maplesyrup
