Look who decided to show up.
Where do you begin a blog post when you haven't blogged in almost 6 months? And before that the posts were sporadic at best... Do you just start typing? Do you make apologies? Do you tell a tall tale of the amazing adventures you've been on that kept you aw...

Dear Volkswagen
Dear Volkswagen,     Five years ago I walked into one of your dealerships just outside of Atlanta on a mission to purchase myself a diesel Jetta. The moment I saw her I knew that she was the one. She was bright red with cream interior and she was perfect. A...

After leaving Cincy vaguely still drunk and high on an amazing weekend, I landed in Charlotte to continue my two week hiatus in Destin. We landed right on time and then proceeded to sit. I thought, no worries, I've got plenty of time before my next flight b...

Two weeks.
What do you do when you want to run away from all responsibilities? You do just that and you run away. I took almost two weeks off of work (consecutively) and I am zero amounts ashamed as to how awesome it felt to basically put my middle finger up to the ma...
