**What you get:** A one-ounce glass bottle (it'll be full unlike the picture above!) with a glass eye dropper. Each bottle contains BASIC (that's a good thing) beard oil freshly made with tender, love, and much care. It's awesome and made from almond oil, jojoba oil, and tea tree oil.... Continue reading

A little more than a year ago I wrote a post about rediscovering running. It's been quite the year since, personally, professionally, and running wise. I planned on running the 2016 Chicago Marathon. Training was going beautifully, with me following the Hanson Marathon religiously. I felt strong, was putting in... Continue reading

My wife called me out on not cooking recently. So I’m writing this to motivate myself to get back in the routine! People often ask if I enjoy cooking. I reply with an emphatic YES and then the next question is always “how do you find the time?” This is... Continue reading

4 stars. My wife and I recently got memberships to the Music Box Theater, and members get discounts at local businesses. We decided to try out luck at The Butcher's Tap before a Valentine's Day Weekend showing of Casablanca (which was awesome! I had never seen it!). We got there... Continue reading

Yes, I’m still playing tennis and doing yoga, and those are going well, but I needed another challenge. Thankfully, I have... Continue reading
