Comparison / Self-expression

I read this on someone's site, and I thought it to be partially true.

"Where comparison ends, self-expression begins."

I also feel there is a certain amount of comparison involved in order to continue
challenging yourself to really reach your full potential. I feel as though I am a
compilation of everything I have been exposed to over my life. I breathe it in,
then breathe it out.


"Nothing Gold Can Stay"

I just wanted to share this well known poem. It is so beautiful to me. It reminds
me of the cycle of life...

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Robert Frost


Richie just told me Greg invited us for wine tasting at his house. Greg is literally the person that knows good wine. I am so excited as always when he invites us over.


Timothy, Ryder, & I are going on a hike.
I guess Ryder is ready to start hiking on his own...

Food and Wine

Since I’ve become a wine connoisseur, I've decided to dedicate this Link to cooking and trying wines... I LOVE to cook. I always take pictures of the food, so this is a perfect way to track it for myself and others.

It's amazing how much people can find out about you just by googling your name.
