52 Weeks of Brotherhood: A Busy Week for Brothers

52 Weeks of Brotherhood: The One with the Dandelions (Again)

In 2012, I stumbled upon a little slice of dandelion puff heaven while on a walk my myself. I returned the next day with the boys in tow and took a series of pictures which will always rank high on my list of favorites. One of the photos even hangs on my canvas wall, and I smile every time I look at it ....more


Yesterday I ran 82 degree temperatures, the sun beating down on my already burnt shoulders. Today I pulled my denim jacket closely around myself to keep the cool wind from ripping it off. They say about Ohio weather, “If you don’t like it, wait a minute.” It will change ....more
