The Art of Text Arguing

So you may or may not have been as lucky as me to have the opportunity to have an argument over text messaging. There’s a whole new set of rules apparently… each text adding one more explicative than the previous to really get your frustration across.

Not sure it’s a healthy way to argue… but at least the words are saved forever on my iPhone!!!

Ode to "Stack-of-Chairs"

Ode to "Stack-of-Chairs"

Oh Stack-of-Chairs,
Look at you standing there
As if you were wearing a crown,
Please, oh please, - don't fall down
I carry you up and down a ramp
It feels like I'm in a boot camp!
Why do you scare me at night
When I only see you in the light
I hope for the day our time will end,
the day my happiness ascends

So a friend of ours is interning with a shoe company out of Southern California. They were on nation-wide tour across the South in an Airstream motor home trying to raise awareness for their campaign. That campaign being - buy a pair of shoes and they send a pair to someone in need.

Inspired by an Argentine shoe with a hundred year history and the continent's poverty and health issues, TOMS was created with a singular mission: To make life more comfortable. TOMS accomplishes this through it's ultra lightweight design and the company's commitment to match every pair purchased with a donated pair to a child in need...there are no complicated formulas, it's buy a pair of TOMS and the company gives a pair to a child on your behalf. The vibrant colors and patterns in the debut collection depict Blake Mycoskie's life changing experiences in his travels to South America where he embraced the lifestyle wholeheartedly and therefore gave back by creating TOMS - shoes for Tomorrow.

Tiff = Unpredictability

For those of you who know Tiff, you probably know that everything about her oozes unpredictability. I thought this picture illustrates my constant concern of what’s coming next (and the fact that I married up!). Don't get me wrong, this is one of the reasons I fell in love with her... and it will never get old, never. Let’s just say… it keeps things interesting! So here’s to my wife, Love You!
