Timehopping.

Looking down our hallway at the fam…

Thanks, Timehop! 😀🦕❤️

Timehopping.

Last night, the Red Sox won the World Series. This morning this popped up in my Timehop from five years ago…

I love it when teams I like win. Thanks, Timehop! 😀🦕❤️

800 Tweets?!

Timehop reminded me that 9 years ago, I tweeted this gem…

It’s funny to look back at the things I used to get excited about. Fast forward nine years, and I’ve sent out more than 30,000 tweets. Unfortunately, almost all of them have been about as exciting, insightful or profound as this one from nine years ago. 😀🦕❤️

#TBT Pause for paws.

These photos of Oscar popped up in my Timehop today…

He’s such a silly and handsome little guy. 😀🦕🐾❤️

And when we came back from walking the dogs this morning, somehow the cat was almost entirely under the covers…

I don’t if she was there the whole time or if I covered her up on accident or if she climbed up there and worked her way under the covers. But it was pretty cute.

Three years ago.

Our beloved bud dog passed away three years ago this evening…

It’s really hard to believe Milan’s been gone for three years now. There hasn’t been a day that’s gone by where we still haven’t missed him in bunches even after all this time. He’s always in our thoughts each and every day. And I’m so very thankful that a couple of bud dog photos show up in my Timehop almost every morning…

All of us still miss you so very much, Milan. You helped me through one of the roughest patches of my life and helped me come out the other side. You were always there for me.  Always there with me. You were the best friend I’ve ever had. And it breaks our hearts that you’re not still here with us now. You would have loved our big house with our little backyard and our neighborhood with all the walks we take through the woods. You were definitely taken from us far too soon. 😦

Rest in peace, bud dog. I will always love you and miss you
more than words could ever possibly say. 😢

Milan Fiala: January 5th, 2006 – October 26th, 2015
😀🐶❤️

Thanks, Timehop!

These photos popped up when I was looking at my Timehop this morning. They are from when we went to the Beer Baron’s Ball a few years back…

Genifer is sooo pretty. 😀😍🦕❤️

Once upon a time.

Back in the day before Swarm became its own thing, there was Foursquare. And there was a time not too long ago that I set a new personal best on for points…

Fast forward seven years, and my current personal best for points over seven days is a whopping 3,431 points. It doesn’t mean anything at all. I just found in kind of interesting. And after all this time, I still really like my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️

One year ago today.

On October 10, 2017, USMNT lost 2-1 away to Trinidad & Tobago and as a result, they failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1986…

Today on the one year anniversary of the darkest day in U.S. Soccer history, the US Soccer Federation released this statement… 

“Today we look forward. With the march towards 2022 underway and the 2026 FIFA World Cup in North America as our guidepost, the U.S. Men’s National Team has embarked on a new journey. The hallmarks of the culture remain, with perseverance, grit and dogged determination fueled by the pride to represent the United States and each and every one of you. We take nothing for granted. The path ahead will be paved with successes and informed by setbacks. We will build strength through commitment and character, accepting challenges and rising every time we fall. We will be aggressive and play without fear, for history demonstrates that fortune favors the bold.

“Like any grand project, ours is a work in progress. We cannot do it alone. Pioneering a new path forward takes the will of a generation full of optimism and hope, bound by the belief that there is nothing we cannot achieve if we are united in the cause. This is the American spirit, from which is born the American dream. It is time to take our destiny in our own hands and turn that dream into a reality. And do it together. The future is US.”

Blah. Blah. Blah. The National Team has a whole bunch of bright talented youngsters that are starting to emerge from the ranks. But they still haven’t even hired a new coach for the National Team. I hope things start to get better soon for our team, and they can get thing s back to where they were and then start figuring out how to take things to the next level. But they sure are taking their sweet time. 😀🇺🇸⚽️❤️

Thanks, Timehop!

I love this photo of Genifer. It popped up today in my Timehop. Thanks for all the wonderful memories Timehop! 😀🦕❤️

#TBT Pause for paws.

A photo of our seemingly immortal cat popped up in my Timehop recently…

And I received a couple of Oscar being adorable…

And there were a bunch of the bud dog, Milan…

Always remembering the good times with the bud dog. 😀🐾🦕❤️
