I feel like all I can ever say lately is, “I’m tired.” Between crazy projects at work and crazy fun social events, I’m just run down and in need of Wittyburg time. Until I (ever?) learn how to relax, here’s what’s kept me smiling:
- lovejpep: My dear friend Justine’s birthday is tomorrow, so what better way to celebrate than catch up with her blog? It’s inspiring, thought-provoking and incredibly charming. Happy birthday, boobear!
- My High School Reunion: It’s still more than a year away, but some of my classmates are so eager, we’ve got a full-fledged #reuniongate on our hands. Their public passion about gay bars, family events and crepe paper is entertaining, if nothing else.
- East End Bar & Grill: This neighborhood spot is a new fave of mine for two very important reasons: They hosted my alumna group for a Mass Comm grad happy hour AND they have a buffalo sampler that will change your life. Priorities, people.
- “Bang Bang” – Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj: Spotify delivers once again — this time, with a trio of badass voices. It debuted yesterday and is already climbing the charts. Just try to get through it without dancing like a maniac.
It’s with a heavy heart I share the following with anyone who’s reading: My dad died Friday after a brief, but badass, fight with cancer. I’ve been home in Florida since that morning and am still in disbelief at how quickly everything happened.
Instead of putting pictures to a collage this week, I’d rather you all get to know my father a bit better. He was one helluva guy who will be truly missed — especially considering an estimated 500 people attended his memorial services last night.
Read his obituary online here, and please consider donating to two of his favorite causes: the Boy Scouts of America and the Academy of Information Technology and Robotics of SCHS.
Dedicated servicemen, volunteer, Scoutmaster, father and husband … you will forever be my first superhero, Daddy.
