Yesterday Jake and I celebrated the 10th anniversary of our first date.

I created lists about each of the kids on their birthdays to create a picture of what they are like right now (Eliza at 8 and Jonas at 3). I thought it would be fun to … Continue

Randomly Right Now

Jonas is obsessed with Kipper the Dog. (The show and the books.)


We went to our friends Burt and Tiffany’s wedding last week, and the venue was the most beautiful place ever. It made me miss living in a loft so much.


I’m getting my first haircut since August … Continue

I’m working on a new project for a friend photographer & colleague, Qian (pronounced like Quin).

Qian is an amazing photographer and he’s the Senior Software Architect of my team at work. He’s very good with code and a camera. Like me but more awesome to the power of ten. … Continue

Project Life 2011 | Week 5

I’m back with another week of Project Life 2011 in 2012.

I’m using the Project Life format to document last year. The documentation is all ready and waiting to be put into albums, so I’m taking my time with this project. It will be an ebb and flow sort … Continue

Music Monday Vol. 92 | Rethinking Playlists

Written on June 18, 2012 at 10:07 pm, by


There will be no playlist this week, as we’re taking the time to think about this amazing article by David Lowery. Lowery, whom you may know from the bands Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven, wrote the most convincing and eloquent article on the ethical implications of music downloading for musical Continue

Music Monday Vol. 89 | Suddenly Summer

Written on May 28, 2012 at 10:58 pm, by


It without a doubt feels like summer here in Kansas City. It’s hot, humid, and sunny. Time for iced coffee, bird watching, long walks, scooter rides, picnics, reading books on blankets in our backyard, and grilling. Time for enjoying the wild flowers in our yard (the ones above attract hummingbirds … Continue

Week in the Life 2012 | Saturday

This week’s playlist comes to you from my office headphones. I love this productivity playlist when I’m sifting through code at home or at the office. It starts off uplifting to get me in a good mood, then goes in for some upbeat techno to keep the workflow goin’. … Continue

Music Monday Vol. 87 | Stuff We Sing in the Car

Written on May 14, 2012 at 4:06 pm, by


Our car radio broke awhile ago and we haven’t cared enough to fix it. I hardly drive, and Jake enjoys the time with his thoughts on the commute to the office. When we’re all in the car together, we usually talk or read. Jake and I both like the long … Continue

January Reads

As often as I wear the above t-shirt, I love TV. I’ve said before, the slogan is a little harsh for me. I’d make one that says, “Watch a little less TV, read a little more, please.” While I do think that scheduling your life around television is crazy, get … Continue

Music Monday Vol. 85 | Classic Punk

Written on April 30, 2012 at 11:28 pm, by


A few weeks ago we posted a more recent punk playlist, which got us in the mood to make this playlist of some of our favorite classic punk songs.

It should go without saying that there’s explicit content.
