How it could all go wrong.

My Meaghan is next to me right now, on our very last leisurely weekend visit in New York before I move in two weeks. (I move in two weeks.)
We were hanging out, catching up, when Meaghan shared a dark secret with me:
You know what my biggest fear is? I keep imagining that we’re up there [...]

I need to learn to ask my wife before I buy something.

The domain registration for “” was set to expire, and I went ahead and renewed the domain for another year. But I didn’t ask Meaghan first! Oh no!
So, realizing my error, I just casually asked her — hey, are we still getting married? And it turns out we are, so it’s ok that I spent [...]

We have an apartment.

Meaghan and I signed a lease today on a loft in the Baldwin building in downtown Durham. This is exceptionally cool, and I’m very pleased with my effort and the outcome. Jennings & McClenny win.
We’re moving on July 3rd, so it’s time for me to start looking around this New York apartment and think, “I [...]

Our anniversary!

No, I am seriously not even thinking about cakes right now, but I was directed to a blog yesterday called Cake Wrecks which I was promised would be hilarious. It’s a blog about professionally made cakes that are absolute disasters. I mean, some of them are really awesome and you can tell someone put a [...]

Ben Moser made my week.
If she loves you enough to take your picture when you’re in that getup, that’s considerable. If she loves you enough to pose for a picture with you in that getup, that’s remarkable. If she loves you enough to pose for a picture with you in that getup and then posts [...]

The frugal groom.

After a meeting this morning, a few of us were sitting around shooting the breeze and one of the guys told a story about how his wife being with him at a business conference and being totally delightful did wonders for him with a potential client. He’s been married for 32 years. My boss had [...]

Goodness gracious.

I bought this domain name last night, thinking that a wedding blog would be fun. And why wouldn’t it be? Everyone loves weddings, everyone loves blogs, so this just screams synergy. As an Internet professional, these are the kinds of opportunities I look out for and exploit. I’m good at what I do.
Anyways, I bought [...]
