I spent the last week on vacation with my family and had time to soak in some sun, relax a bit, and watch my kids with new eyes. Somehow while I was busy working, shuttling people about, and doing the daily errands of life, they managed to become...

Recently, I attended my 20th high school reunion. It was fun. More fun than I thought it would be. A flood of memories, countless hugs, and a lot of reminiscing made for a great night.
