A Tale of Two Sunsets

Tara and I got back from a weekend trip to the Oregon coast yesterday afternoon. It was my anniversary gift to her, and it seemed fitting. After all, we were married at the coast.

Don’t get me wrong, options are great; in school, multiple-choice quizzes were always my favorite. But when it comes to orderingContinue reading “Should’ve Had The Crab Cakes”
