My 7 year old walks into the kitchen with his favorite pajamas on. He’s comically outgrown them. Stomach sticking out. Ankles showing. He sighs and says “Alexa… Add Ryan Pajamas to the shopping list.” Then shakes his head and walks out.

One of the things I love about Squarespace — and one reason why I’ve hosted my site with them for over 10 years — is how easy it is to adjust the look of my site. I know there are other, cheaper, options, but I haven’t found anything easier.

Went swimming with my Apple Watch 4 for the first time tonight. Automatically started a workout and accurately kept track of my laps. Pretty nice.

Trying to get a bunch of work done at my desk and was struggling to find the right soundtrack. Settled into Achtung Baby, but I wonder what other albums people listen to while working… 🎧

Ryan had a blast at soccer tonight and scored his first goal. (Also awesome about 7-year-old soccer… hugs for parents between quarters.)

I now have my entire Facebook post history in an Excel spreadsheet. The first step in trying to build a physical book with all my family stories from the last 11 years.
