This past weekend I turned 30. woohoo. no, I dont “feel any older.” besides nagging sins of omission and commission, I couldnt be much happier with the life God has given me: awesome wife, wonderful little kids, loving family, good friends, good job, nice home, and continued enjoyment of the gift of music. speaking of…my big b-day gift was a new octave mandolin, for which I’m very thankful and about which I’m quite excited. it’s got me back into wanting to learn more music and dive deeper and hopefully become a better player. so thanks to Michelle and everyone else! next up: wifey’s big b-day is very soon and we’re getting away for a long weekend. yay!
