Happy Birthday President Obama.


Miggy’s Birthday

Miggy came to Memphis for his birthday.


I went to Austin for Eric’s birthday. It was the end of the 5 weeks without adult supervision.

Thanksgiving 2015

I went home for Thanksgiving. On the way I saw the Delta Porsche, but didn’t get a ride in it. While at home I went to my first escape room and celebrated my mom’s birthday.

New Orleans

I went to New Orleans for a combo birthday trip and bachelor party. I also ran into one of my oldest friends.


Memphis in May

I had a weekend in Memphis, my first since Thanksgiving, and it happened to be my birthday and BBQ Fest weekend. I learned an ice luge is a terrible idea and red wrist bands are the devil. I’m not sure why there are so many pictures with Carol.

I also had my first Brother Juniper’s experience and Chicken Sunday made a cameo.

I’m Running for President

I’ve decided to run for President and am naming James Phillips as my Vice President. Of course you know this isn’t true, but I’m now old enough to in case I have a change of heart.

10 Years Ago

10 years ago today I was partying in New Orleans with friends, celebrating my birthday, my 2nd graduation from graduate school, my soon to be departure from Mississippi, my new job in DC, and the end of my cheerleading career. Most of the things we celebrated during that trip have changed, my birthday and the fact I graduated being about the only things that have remained the same. Since then I have returned to and left Mississippi, left DC, and returned to cheerleading, aka Hotel California.

This Year

I haven’t written much this year. That’s been somewhat intentional as I’ve focused on other things in my limited free time. The only other thing I’ve published this year was actually written and scheduled during 2011, so this is my first real post of the year.

The Next 10 Years

What will I be doing in 10 years? I have no idea, but I know I’m going to do what I can to enjoy the journey to that day. A couple observations from the last year or 10:

  • People make poor decisions around me.
  • I’m a much better me than you’ll ever be and you’re a much better you than I’ll ever be.
  • It’s not too late for me to make lifelong friends.

I don’t have anything else to say except for vote for me when I run for President.
