The Perfect Valentine’s Day Dinner


Carey and I celebrated Valentine’s Day yesterday.  Valentine’s Day is a special day for me because it is the first holiday Carey and I ever celebrated together.   We started dating December 27th of 2007, were apart on New year’s Eve, and so Valentine’s Day was the first opportunity I had to celebrate a holiday with Carey. I tend to take VDay very seriously as a result...

If You Could Only See


If You Could Only See If you could only see inside of me when I push you away use my anger to fuel a stubborn desire; when I sulk behind steamy eyes that dare anyone to start something with me – I’m begging for your laughter and your smile If you could only see behind this facade when I don’t clam up and monopolize the conversion when I pontificate passionate and outlandish...

Carey Has a Blog!

In our time together we’ve never had a fight, we’ve never raised our voices to each other, and we’ve certainly never gone to bed angry. But we have had a tense moment or two. And they are...

A Pun is the Highest Form of Humor


I just wanted to share one of the 10 million reasons why I am so head over heels for Carey. This conversation is taken from memory, as much as possible, from last night as we lay in bed: Ron: I’m really excited about writing again. I’ve had a story idea running through my mind all weekend. Carey: You should write about that dream you had last week where I had shark DNA. Ron: Ummmmmm. ...
