An Open Letter to Matt and Melissa Graves, I am so Deeply Sorry for the Loss of your Son Lane. You may never read this, but your family is not alone during your time of loss - a predator #alligator at the "Happiest Place on Earth" #Disney at a five star seemingly safe #DisneyResort #GrandFloridianResort ripping your son and your dreams from you.

Written with love from a #Mom of a #TwoYearOldToddler who cannot get the despair of the recent tragedies out of her mind and heart... I am so sorry. #DevastatingWeekforOrlando #PrayersforFlorida #SevenSeasLagoon #LaneGraves #PrayersforLaneandYOU

Actually in the fitness world we refer to the Holiday Season between October- January as the "Maintain Don't Game" goal - so losing 10 lbs (as your pregnant wife tempts you with late night snacks) is pretty darn INCREDIBLE!  Great work honey!  I am (as always) very proud of you!  Keep up the great work- and get as much sleep as you can now, because in one month Schmoo 2 might have other ideas ;)
