cheese and thanks
(this one may end up being long) some will be cheesey and cliche but very much true. some will just be true. these are some of the things i’m thankful for. in no particular order: - science. for helping my friends seth & emily create an IVF baby. they have wanted it so bad and for so long, and their dream finally came true. also for helping the my puppy dog Dixie to fight and fight and...

search me and invade my privacy and look at naked x-rays all you want to, but i’m not going through your stupid cancer boxes.

Obsessing over: Babies. They’re so tiny. And perfect. And innocent. And just plain amazing. Working on: About 6 different customer proposals. Pain-in-the-butt but worth it.

Thanksgiving with my...

You know he truly loves you when. . .
sitting-in-a-tree: he lets you warm your ice cold feet on his legs and doesn’t speak a peep or flinch an inch. **except for the speak a peep part. he calls me cold hearted. and ice queen. but always lets me do it anyway…
