Music Monday

I'm sure you've heard Hozier's song "Take Me To Church," which is beautiful but sadly overplayed.  Did you know the rest of his album is just as beautiful? I listen to Cherry Wine at least once a day (ok just kidding, like 3 times a day...)

Have you heard of Nathaniel Rateliff? Because he's wonderful and you should definitely go listen to him.

My Mom is a Rock Star

Did you know my mom is amazing? If you know her, then I'm sure you do.  She's pretty much the most badass woman I know.  She's such an amazing person.  I can't even begin to explain her to you, because words can't do her justice.  I meant to make this post for Mother's Day, but life got in the way (like it always does), so I thought I'd do it today, on her last day of chemotherapy.

A little while ago, I convinced my mom to do a StoryCorps interview with me.  I wanted to talk to her about what it was like going through my dad's diagnosis, treatment and death just to turn around and  get diagnosed herself.  It was so nice to talk to her about it, and to have the recording.  I wanted to share it with anyone who wants to listen.  So here you go.





And for good measure, here are some photos of the beautiful woman.

Craft Drinks and Hippies

Dan and I got to hang out with our wonderful friend Alli a few weeks ago when she came to town. We spent the evening drinking crafty drinks at House of Loom.

After some libations, we headed to the Slowdown for Shpongle. It was an 18 and over show, which just reminded me what the youth these days are like and made me feel old. But it was a great show and wonderful night, so no complaints here.

I love when great friends come home to visit, especially when they do it on the fly and it's just a surprise. You walk into a friend's house or a bar, and all of a sudden this familiar face pops up in front of you for a hug. So many friends have moved to great cities all over the world, but they can come home and pick up exactly where they left off. They can just show up, everyone freaks out, and then we have a blast. I guess what I'm saying is my friends are awesome and I love you all. Take more random trips to Omaha so we can freak out over you and I can post pictures of it. Thanks.

A Walk in the Park: Fontenelle Edition

A few weeks ago Sarah and I took peanut and boo to Fontenelle Forest for a hike. It was still pretty desolate, but made for some fun shots.
