Sweet Baby James

It was a Monday like any other except for this time without caffeine. We only had one Diet Pepsi left in the fridge and when I slogged down the stairs to my office at 4:00am I decided I’d put in my official application for Husband of the Year 2019 and forego my morning ritual so […]

I Need You To Gun It

I still remember the intent look in his eyes. This was serious. We paused at the crest of a hill, looking down the embankment and up the other side across a small ravine. He stepped off his snowmobile, which was something that no one ever did. With as much snow as had fallen, trying to […]
