Picture this, parents... you're sitting on the John, doing what every human being on earth does. And then, out of nowhere...
You know... Utah sometimes gets a bad rap and for a good reason. We're weird here. We can't buy alcohol on Sunday. We will never have an NFL team because...
I’m 32 now. I’ve arrived at the front brim of middle-age, and as the seconds tick on, I have been forced to ponder a few things about life.
Don't look for an explanation. You won't find one.
I have a *really* important birthday wish that you can all help with. If, that is, you're rebellious enough to figure it out.
Finally, my favorite post of the week! Every Saturday night I take some of the photos that you have uploaded to the Facebook wall, and I post them here. I love This is Beautiful You because it gives me (and everybody else) an incredible glimpse of who we all are. It puts a face on the awesome people coming here. It gives us a beautiful idea of the uniqueness and diversity of the followers here at SDL. More than anything, it shows all of us just how beautiful we each can be.Anyway, thank you for sharing a small part of yourselves. It’s my honor to put the spotlight on you today. This is beautiful you.Which photos made you the happiest today?If you’d like to send in photos to be considered for a future “This is beautiful you” and other future blog posts, please post them on the Facebook wall (we need lots more!). Only upload photos that you don’t mind me using, and that...

What kind of dad would I be if the only photos I shared were the mishaps?
You know what they say... Kids say the darndest things. As a parent, I am reminded of that daily. Like when Noah said, "Dad, I'm gonna pull the hair out of your..."
A *super* short poem for my kid sister on her birthday. :)
Oh man, is it ever tempting to dig and prod and poke for the "truth" when we find out somebody else has a negative opinion about us. I'm telling you now. It won't end well.
Booze. Parties. Sex. When you string those powerful words together, it sounds like the headline of another Hollywood tragedy. Or maybe good parenting...
In an effort to find a seriously goofy woman, I wrote the following poem to use on my dating website profile...
Don't know how they did it... My sister is celebrating her tenth anniversary with her husband today. Actually, I do know how they did it.
Sometimes the best moments in life aren't what you might expect them to be. At least when you're a parent.
