Here’s to you, TJ French

It was probably In between a game of NCAA Baseball 2006 or an episode of the Gilmore Girls or during a CSU tailgate or a sorority function that my good friend, TJ, decided to impart some wisdom onto me:

“Let the bridges you burn, light the way”

The bridges that you have incinerated burned have obviously led you to something special and we could not be happier to be celebrating with you and Amanda this weekend.


Year 2 – Fresno

It has been a little over a year since Nikki and I started this blog and about a year since Nikki and Todd helped move all of our stuff to Fresno. I am big into nostalgia and I enjoy looking back to the beginning of our adventure. Looking back allows me to always stay looking forward. We have found a great apartment in a great area of town. We have made some great friends and started a newly dominating trivia team. We have jobs that we enjoy and that challenge us every single day.

August will fly by with a trip to Vegas next weekend meeting the Haberle’s and the soon-to-be Gorman’s, a trip to Denver to celebrate the French nuptials, Nikki staying in Denver for work then headed to Omaha (for another wedding), Nikki’s birthday and Opening Kick for Fresno State…our 1st anniversary will be here before we know it. The trend of things moving fast has dominated our life this year but we are hopeful that year 2 in Fresno will slow down, if only a bit.

“I accept Time absolutely.
It alone is without flaw,
It alone rounds and completes all,
That mystic baffling wonder.”
