Takeoff for a Eurotrip

In the early hours of a Friday morning, I hopped in an Uber bound for MCI. Aside from a hour-or-so power nap after packing, I hadn’t slept in nearly two days and had just spent the previous hours crying on Ogilvy. In the day that followed, I would hop flights from Kansas City to Chicago to Dublin and then, finally, Venice.

The Days After Ogi Came Home

It feels like forever ago that baby Ogilvy was heading home in the passenger seat of my tiny Ford Fiesta. As we creep in on his 3rd birthday, I’ve been getting super nostalgic while looking at old photos and videos of the 20-lb. nugget. He attempted to hide.

The Beginning of ‘Gets Lost’

In a blaze of glory, I quit my full-time job, announced full-time self employment and bought a one-way ticket to Italy.

Over the Rainbow in Utah

Our drive into Utah was nothing spectacular. I’d powered through the vast, empty lands of Idaho before grandma took the wheel and we continued into the Promontory Mountains. As storms moved in all around us, we kept cruising under a strangely calm but darkening sky. In the distance, grandma spotted a thick, short rainbow near the ground. “Take a picture!” I whipped …
