Florida Vacation Recap

After a completely brutal winter in Minnesota, some things aligned and afforded us the opportunity to spend a much-needed week in Fort Myers.  Highlights included two Twins spring training games, hanging out with a buddy, gobs of time by the pool, a lot of running outside, and fantastic food.

However, perhaps the best highlight was just the quality time I was able to spend with my wife and my mom - my two favorite women in the whole world.

Here we are hanging out in Captiva:

The weather was particularly spectacular - warm, but not too warm, and sunny every day.  No rain, no brutal humidity, no crappy cold, just gorgeous.

 We SO needed this.  Now, if we could only coax spring to show up in Minnesota...

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Here's to all you Irish out there, and those that claim to be.  Today is our big day.  

As for me, I have a little bit of work to do, will head out for a long run (I'd go now but it's too damned cold), breakfast, mass, and then head to the bars to be with my people.  If I time it right, I should be home by six and in bed no later than eight.

Just like my dad would do it:

Here's wishing you all a happy and safe St. Patrick's Day.
