About Me

I am a 45 year husband and dad, currently adjusting to life back in the United States after living in Italy for a little over two years. I love spending time with my family, cycling, model railroading, mosaics and watching TV and movies.

First Blog

Here I am working on my first blog. I'm was inspired by my wife who started her own blog a couple of months ago.

I've been thinking about my life quite a bit lately. You see, I just turned 40 in September. No, I am not panicking and I'm not sad or upset. I just never saw it coming! I still remember being a teenager and looking at people in their 40's and thinking about how 40 was a lifetime away. Well, here I am. 40 has been a lifetime of experiences. I've been lucky to experience so many wonderful and interesting things in my life. I've also had to deal with many issues that have affected my life and how I have lived it. Some of these issues I have overcome and some I am still struggling with.

I guess I decided to write this blog for a couple of reasons: 1) Its been a big year for me. My family (my wife, my son and myself) are getting ready to move to Milan Italy for two years. In late July we found out we wil be moving sometime in late December. In August we took at two week Panama Canal cruise, the trip of a lifetime. And, as mentioned above, I turned 40 in September. Its been a busy year. This blog is a way for me to share our adventures with friends and family. And 2) I have experienced so many things in 40 years. I wanted to have a place to capture past experiences and see how they have made me the person I am today.

I hope those who read this blog find it interesting. My mind is already racing through memories of experiences I want to write about.
