A few months ago during one of our weekly library trips, Austin perused the new nonfiction section and brought home “Why We Sleep” by Matthew Walker. For the next few weeks, I was bombarded with all kinds of sleep knowledge, some of which I would rather not have known.
Summer is finally here, and it’s the perfect time to dust off the old running shoes—or buy new, no judgment here—and hit the trails.

When collaborating with another entity on a special section, things can get tricky. When collaborating with another entity plus 20 high-achieving, busy individuals, things are guaranteed to get tricky.
During the summer when I was a kid, my yard served as the neighborhood gathering place. Kickball, softball, volleyball, dodgeball—you name it, we played it. I spent all my waking hours outside soaking up the sun. A dip in the pool, some basketball in the driveway, twirling baton in the yard, riding bikes down the road, catching fireflies at night.

Some of my favorite days are photo shoot days. Getting out of the office is always nice. And getting to see an idea come to life is the best part. Usually, I just assign photographs to our photo department and wait to see the final result. Being on location and essentially directing the shoot adds another level of fun to the process.
