It was at 11:30 last night that I started to lose my mind.

That was day three of the non-stop music and screaming from the apartment below us.  

I just couldn’t believe what was happening. Friday night was annoying, but manageable. Saturday night at 1 a.m. things started...

Early this week, the lovely people at Bon Secours shared an article about the impromptu wedding they threw for Jaimie and I on March 20, 2020.

An impromptu wedding. How many people get to write a sentence like that?

I’ve noticed that when things go haywire, I like to have a schedule to cling to. 

This need has made these past week challenging, considering the fact that all sense of order and schedule is gone. I know other people are feeling this, but for me it’s particularly intens...

The message stopped me in my tracks. I couldn’t believe it. I went to ESPN to double che...

I’ve been thinking about that word today. Last night before bed Jaimie and I each went to put on our shoes to take Andy outside. It took a moment before we realized that he was no longer here. Us taking him out had been so normal for so long. When we realized w...

Last Friday, on March 20, 2020, Jaimie and I got married. As expected, in a way. We had been planning on getting married on March 20 since late December. We just thought it was going to be the two of of us at the courthouse in Downtown Greenville. That was our plan. Ye...

Hi everyone, Jaimie & David here. 

It’s been a crazy week, and we thought we needed to update. There have been a lot of messages and texts that I know we haven’t responded to, so please forgive us for the delay.

By the way, Jaimie is doing the writing here because David...

I’ve written a book!

You read that right. I have written a book.

I didn’t plan to. It wasn’t my intention. But isn’t that what life is? The things we do while meaning to do something else? All I know is that I am really proud of it, and I can’t wait for everyone to read...
