Well, I pretty much failed at writing an update on my ACL reconstruction surgery each week. I really wish I had so that I could look back at where I was each week and track my progress easily... but life/work/Blend got in the way. So, I'm going to do … [Continue reading]

Blend 2014


It's still a little hard for me to believe- but this year's Blend Retreat has come and gone. This was the third annual gathering for Blend (and also the third year that I've been in attendance). I helped out in some capacity during planning for the … [Continue reading]
