My dad was here today. It's been 11 months since he's been in town, and I'm grateful that he gets to spend time with my kids and with our family.

We run a small business together while raising a young family. Literally a Mom & Pop operation. Our business is in an industry that encourages - almost requires - spending
I try not to make a big deal out of it, because I'm afraid to jinx it: with only one or two exceptions, I've managed to do yoga every day
