Still Running

Like most parents of young children, there are a lot of things which I used to really enjoy, that I have trouble finding time for these days. I don’t travel to many conferences, I don’t take on as many DIY projects, and I’m definitely not writing as much as I used to on here. One thing that I’ve tried to maintain is my consistently infrequent running routine. Back in 2013, I wrote a post sharing some of my running data. I’ve continued to track all of my runs since then, so I was curious how I’ve been doing. As it turns out, not so bad…

Orlando’s Night-Blooming Cereus

Last night, we kept our kiddos out late to do something a little nerdy. Well, cereusly nerdy. We drove around from 9-10pm, admiring the flowers of tree-climbing cacti that bloom for (usually) just one night per year.

UX in Remote-First Organizations

It’s fair to say that remote work is a hot topic. A growing number of visionary organizations like Zapier, Automattic, and Buffer have demonstrated for years how successful a remote-only model can be. On the other hand, many product companies have doubled down on maintaining centrally located, in-office teams.

Fifteenth

Today, Ames and I are celebrating our Fifteenth wedding anniversary. Even as I’m writing that ordinal out for the second time, it’s still hard to comprehend. It seems like just yesterday that we were walking down the aisle together. Yet, looking at pictures like the one above from when were dating, I can’t help but slap my knee, wheeze a little, and yell, “look at those young whipper snappers”.

Mid-Century Mundane

I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 years since Amy and I moved from Atlanta back to our home state of Florida. We rented a place in Winter Park for our first 6 months and then in early 2017 (actually between Christmas and New Year’s) we moved into our cozy, mid-century ranch home in Orlando’s historic Audubon Park neighborhood. Unlike our epic “Pulley House” project in Decatur or our 1970s cabin house in Columbia, we haven’t really done much renovating.
