It’s A Little Thing, But I Like It

I recently moved my office from West End to Center615 in East Nashville. We’ve only been here a couple of weeks, but I’m really enjoying the new space even though they still have a lot of projects ongoing and everyone is still settling in. I too am settling in as I learn a different commute, different parking, locations of things (like the post office), etc. Yesterday, I stumbled upon a new little habit I have, that I particulary enjoy.

Day One Is Complete

Day one of my first Travelogue (Edit: deleted) is complete. Hopefully this weekend I’ll get the remaining 6 days posted. There’s also over 100 photos that we’ve taken and that doesn’t include the 3 underwater cameras that we have still have to develop. So there’s plenty of stuff to tell you about!

We dated for 6 years and were engaged for 2 of those years. I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun. 🙂

My Mom put me through “Being A Husband 101” after she divorced my father and some of the tips that she gave me have stuck. One of her tips was to “always make your Anniversary special” and Holly and I agreed from the start to take a little trip for each anniversary. It doesn’t have to be big. It can be only for a weekend to the next county as long as it’s just the two of us. Over the years we’ve been to quite a few places.
