    7 Years of Dating and 8 Months of Marriage

    Kara and I have officially been together for seven years. And we have now been married for eight months! The milestones are moving fast. Kara planned my 30th birthday a few months after we got married. I’m glad she did. I hadn’t celebrated my birthday with a party in years! She got me a burger […]

  • So We’re Building a House

    So We’re Building a House

    It’s something we’ve always wanted. A home to call our own. Being me, I’m particular. I wanted a new construction home. A lot of paperwork is still pending, but hopefully, we will move into this house next year. I was fortunate enough to photograph the progression of our future home early. I think these photos […]

    I’m Attempting to Limit Social Media

    I launched my social network earlier this year after using an alternative social network for several months. The experience helped me slow my mainstream social media use and experience an advertising and political news-free environment. This month I shut down my social network to save money. But I’m considering reopening a variant of it again […]

  • Day Trip to Austin

    Day Trip to Austin

    We recently visited downtown Austin for a Taco shop and a pumpkin patch. While in Austin, we walked a portion of 6th street and called Whole Foods. I enjoy photographing Austin’s skyscrapers. It’s hard to imagine how expensive they must be to build. They, indeed, are works of art. This is my favorite photo of […]

  • Thoughts on Motivation

    Thoughts on Motivation

    Motivation comes from within. It requires doing the right thing when no one is watching and when everyone is, yet it is unpopular.

    Unboxing Xbox Series S & Playing Halo CE

    I overpaid on Amazon for what I thought was the Xbox One S. I then canceled and ordered from Microsoft; I learned this was the new Xbox Series S. It is a little confusing, but there are a few consoles out there Xbox One S, Xbox One X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. […]

    Unboxing Vizio V-Serio 50 inch 4K Smart TV from Walmart

    Special thanks to my friend Rafael Alvarez for allowing me to unbox his new TV! We chose the Vizio TV because it was the brightest of all the other models on display. The Phillips model came close, but the deciding factor was the Vizio had Apple AirPlay, and Rafael had an iPhone, so it worked […]

    The Apple Mac Mini M1 is as blazing fast as they say!
