I’m starting my 31st birthday off with a cup of Birthday Tea from Adagio Teas. This super special blend of black tea, caramel flavoring, sugar sprinkles, vanilla flavoring, and Creme flavoring is a treat I look forward to every year. It’s not available for… Continue Reading “Celebrating 31 with Birthday Tea!”

Motor City Comic Con 2019

tardis by andrew heath

I don’t think I have ever openly declared my nerdom here on my blog, but I have demonstrated it here, here, here, and here. Now however, I would like to declare it: I. Am. A. Nerd. Like a stay-up-well-past-my-bedtime-even-though-my-infant-son-has-me-sleep-deprived-so-I-can-sneak-in-some-video-game-playtime kind of nerd. Or a… Continue Reading “Motor City Comic Con 2019”

Five March Favorites

  Don’t mind me. I’m just trying to play catch-up! I’ve never had to balance blogging with a YouTube channel before. Aside from both being time-consuming (but like, in a good way), there is the challenge of creating content for the two without being… Continue Reading “Five March Favorites”

Goodbye October

If I thought life moved fast before, adding a child into the mix makes life move in hyper speed. I can’t believe Oliver turns one month in just a few days. Parenthood is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and I haven’t… Continue Reading “Goodbye October”

Jackson Coffee Company

First, let me say something about my hometown of Jackson, Michigan. It’s missing somethings, like a job market. Decent malls too, but mostly a job market. The industrial part of town is filled with old, dilapidated factories, but if you can look past that,… Continue Reading “Jackson Coffee Company”

Spring has sprung!

The mornings are crisp, the afternoons are warm and smell like freshly cut grass, and the evenings feel soggy like a rain shower is on its way.  Pink and white flowers bud on the branches of bushes and trees, and when the wind picks… Continue Reading “Spring has sprung!”

Wandering Through North Dakota

Walking in North Dakota

After reading Greyhound by Steffan Piper, I couldn’t help but reminisce about my most recent cross-country trip.  And by recent, I mean a trip I made in August 2008. I’d always wanted to ride a train.  There is something so fantastic about trains, assuming of course… Continue Reading “Wandering Through North Dakota”
