2017 in Review

2017 is in the books, and what a strange year it was.  A crappy year in so many ways: politics being a mess, every celebrity being a sex monster, and a bunch of friend drama.  But it was also an incredibly joyous and momentous year for me personally: bought a house in Grand Rapids, had …

2016 In Review

Time to do my annual look back, and let the record show I did technically start this before February (in case I don’t actually finish it tonight).  2016 came and went even faster than 2015, and in a popular culture sense, that was fine, as it was a real crappy year. Personally though, Avery kept …

2015 in Review

Well, it’s February, so I should probably post my annual look back at the previous year. Go figure, I actually thought over New Year’s Weekend “oh, I could get a start on my year in review post!” And then I decided to have dinner instead. And then it was February. 2015 came and went so …

So Long Buddy

This past Wednesday, my grandfather Ty Cobb Wallace (better known as Bomp) left this world, less than a month shy of his 96th birthday.  He always told me that he wanted to live until he was 120 where to buy Phentermine US and be shot by a jealous husband.  While he didn’t quite make it …

2014 in Review

Another year in the books, and while all years bring some change in their own way, this one obviously brought a big one.  It’s funny to think that when I was typing up my 2013 in review, I was only about a month out from discovering that I would become a father in 2014.  Crazy …

2013 In Review

Well here’s the one time all year that I actually update my blog. I guess maybe I should rename this to “Morgan’s once a year ruminations on the previous year”. So another year has gone by, and as per usual, I’m gonna take a look back at it, both from a personal perspective, and a …

2012 in Review

Holy crap, so the last post I made was 2011 in review over a year ago.  I think my blogging instinct is officially dead.  And as much as I almost let this whole year in review thing die this year, it’s one tradition I’m just not ready to give up on yet.  So since we’re …

2011 in Review

Every year it seems like I put this out later.  So I’m sorry for my lateness on this, but it’s still January, so it counts right? So Morgan, since I know you like to get sentimental, here’s the quick links to previous years – 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005.  And here’s some highlights of what …

Costa Rica Trip Day 2

We got up relatively early, and explored Margarita’s a little bit.  I believe we were the only ones staying there. \ After hearing several stories from Margarita, and some tips for where we should go, we rented a car and headed off to Manuel Antonio.  The GPS almost immediately got us lost, as we headed …

Costa Rica Trip Day 1

Well we’ve been blessed to have internet in our two quick places we’ve stayed at so far in Costa Rica, so I figured I’d go ahead and do one of my trip diaries again, at least while I have reliable internet. As to be expected, the first day was filled with travel.  So Corinne and …
