The past month has been kind of a whirlwind. Lots of family events and incredibly busy at work. Just sort of a perfect storm of things to keep me away from making updates.
The most exciting (and positive) thing that's happened is that our little girl turned one. She's happy and healthy and walking and jabbering a lot. Fatherhood has been even more fun that I thought it would be. I love that little gal.
On a much sadder note, the first third of 2012 has found far too many people that I know and care about exiting this world. Some had lived long, full lives, and others had shorter, vibrant lives and left far too quickly. If anything, it's been a major reminder that I need to tell everyone that I hold dear just how much I care for them as often as I possibly can.
I'll get back to updating this blog at a regular basis sooner or later, but I'll end this one with a quote from one of my favorite authors.
"Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-"God damn it, you've got to be kind.” ― Kurt Vonnegut
