Swimming in anxiety with COVID-19

Anxiety comes naturally to me. I know I’m blessed and unique in that way (said no one ever). Big news events like this COVID-19 stuff and the stuff with Iran back in January can really do a number in my brain. I’ve come along way with managing my daily anxiety through exercise, sleep, nutrition, meditation, …

Helping the community through art, COVID-19 edition

I probably don’t need to explain what’s going on with COVID-19 or the novel coronavirus that’s been spreading across the globe for the last few months. I have no intention of spreading hysteria with this post, but rather to do what I can to spread positivity while helping some of those most impacted by the …

Pet portraits for charity

When I started doing commissioned artwork some 6 months ago, I felt a little bit guilty. Why should I take money for doing something that comes easy to me and I thoroughly enjoy doing? I have a healthy salary at my day job and don’t need more money (said no one ever, haha!). Not that …

31 Heroes

What makes the natural awesomeness of a three-day-weekend even more awesome? When the highlight is a really cool fundraiser. On Saturday, Ronnie and I had the honor of participating in our local Kansas City 31 Heroes workout, hosted by CrossFit Lee’s Summit, a memorial fundraiser taking place nationwide and even overseas, to raise money and …

2010 Bikers for Babies KC

It got to me every town we rode through; every truck parked on the side of the road with kids waving at us from the tailgate. Every shirt that said “Bikers for Babies,” whether it was this years design or one from a few years back. And then there were the custom-made matching shirts “We …

Bikers for Babies

Has it really been almost a year since my highlight of last year? Bikers for Babies 2009 was perhaps the best experience I can note from last year. It was about family, giving, community; when people from all different backgrounds and lifestyles come together for one day to raise money and awareness, and celebrate life …

2:30 in the Morning

As I sit here eating a bowl of Marshmallow Matey’s (white trash version of Lucky Charms) at 2:30 on Wednesday morning, I’m regretting writing yesterday that I just haven’t had time to blog, because here I am, when I’d rather be sleeping. I’ve been wide awake since maybe 12:30 – my mind has raced all …

Bikers for Babies KC 2009

Awe inspiring. Overwhelming. Humbling. Thrilling. Those are just a few words to describe our first experience as part of Kansas City Bikers for Babies last Sunday. But they don’t even begin to capture the magnitude of the event for those of us that rode, and those that benefit from the cause. I knew I was …

Bikers for Babies – Here we Come!

Ever since Skyler went through her ordeal, I’ve wanted to be a part of Bikers for Babies. This is an awesome charity event that happens nationwide, but the Kansas City Bikers for Babies is the largest March of Dimes charity ride in the nation, and one of the largest rides for any charity in the …

Less Narcissism, More Cause

I’m so excited to finally have another purpose for this blog, other than talking about myself and my family! Sure, it’s a great outlet for me to express myself and a way to keep friends and family up to date, but sometimes it does feel self-centered, especially if I’m pimpin’ it. Recently WordPress announced a …
