Time to get baby some toys. Gotta love Tea & More.

The gap in conversation every five minutes.

03 June 2019 // San Diego, California

I loved this book- in terms of story, it was a real classic spy story, making you wonder who you can trust and what’ll happen next.

Rooting it in real world intervenionism in West Africa and using well written characters to raise questions about politics, gender, and raise took it to a new level of creativity.

04 June 2019 // San Diego, California

Root rooting for the road team ever since I left Philly a whole lifetime ago.

A little weeknight baseball for the two of us, cause I always gotta catch at least one game of the Phillies series whenever  they’re in San Diego. We spent most of it right up by the Phils’ bullpen and I got to get these pics of an endangered species: Phillies relievers.

I don’t post a ton of my baseball takes here. I save that for Twitter. So I’ll keep it at all this: I’m proud of this team’s resilience and being able to bounce back with a neat little win streak after a terrible stretch of losing McCutchen and every reliever to injuries. Second best record in the NL and the three most important players- Harper, Hoskins, and Nola have yet to fully catch fire the way they can. Once they get rolling, things should be real fun.

Another day, another bundle of books to drop at the library, and another to pick up.

#157 jason isbell & father john misty

06 June 2019 // San Diego, California

Spontaneous drop in at the Jason Isbell & Father John Misty show that got literally misty. The latter gave us some songs I don’t think he’s ever played in public before.

Anyone who works at a nonprofit: a large portion of your job is constantly saying thank you. Embrace it!

#159 anniversary 7

08 June 2019 // Los Angeles, California

Seven years ago, I took her out on our first date and I haven’t had a first date since then! So many good things came out of an inkling that one of my best friendships still had room to grow into something bigger.

This year has been absolutely eventful, so it’s pretty fitting that our seventh dating anniversary didn’t involve much sitting still. Boxing, cleaning the house, packing, meeting the dog sitter, then hopping on a plane.

Finally got a little chance to breathe during our layover at LAX.

I love you, Deanna and every step of the adventure. Now let’s go take Wyoming by storm!

#160 Grand Tetons

09 June 2019 // Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Arrived in Jackson Hole late last night and it didn’t take all that long to get the hang of this place.

There’s no bad direction to stare, it’s all beautiful. Though staring towards the Tetons is always a pretty good idea.

10 June 2019 // Jackson, Wyoming

Wyoming. It didn’t take that long to get the hang of things here. Basically, you don’t want to close your eyes!

I’m here to play with my nephews, to stare at some moose, and to let the week go by slowly.

It’s gonna be a good week!

#162 Snake River

11 June 2019 // Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Took a cruise down the Snake River in a little river raft.

So gorgeous. Saw a beaver. Saw an eagle. Loved life.

#163 In Yellowstone

12 June 2019 // Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

This National Park had more to do than I expected. The Geyser paths are well protected- as they should be- but I wondered how much free space there would be to roam and explore more openly. Turns out there was plenty!

#164 The Book Trader

13 June 2019 // Jackson, Wyoming

We decided to go for a more laid back day around Jackson, and even that didn’t disappoint.

I loved this bookstore close to the center of town. Could’ve spent a whole day there.

It’s been a beautiful week. It’s been my kind of week.

One last day in Wyoming. It’s been such a good time here.
