Doubled up on an assembly line to make 4 little pizzas, 2 red sauce & 2 scratch pestos (one almond, one cashew - cashew was better), added a bottle of Pinot from @cartographwines (made by a couple who fell in love making wine together) and had ourselves a rather phenomenal Valentine's Day. πŸ’•πŸ•πŸ·πŸ’•

Incredibly honored to get this recognition tonight. Really nice ceremony where a lot of nice things were said about me. Bit surreal, and very humbling. Any and all credit to my parents, coaches and teammates, honestly.

Aaaand the duo of paintings mounted behind our couch. #finally #painting #paint #diy #bigcanvas

2 of 2 in the set I finished this weekend. Total noob, it's crazy how hard it is to make paint do what you want. I salute all you real painters / creatives out there. #bigcanvas #diy #bigcanvasisscary #art #painting #paint

New Years vibes. Hosted the crew last night for a 2017 kickoff that'll be laughed about for years. πŸŽ‰ #newyear #newyears #happynewyear #2017

Insanely fun siblings hang in Denver last weekend with @nwoehrle out for a visit. Cc @masonbrownh @spicey86 @melissafosterme #siblings #denver

Took an Ikea table, stained it, painted it w @anniesloanhome @chalkpaint first red and dark grey, then white, then sanded the whole thing to bring that color out. Bit of an antique / farm vibe, turned out pretty darn well! #diy #diyfurniture Lots of help from @melissafosterme of course:)

You step into this world and spend nearly every day thereforward trying to make sense of it. Trying to figure out your place on a rock hurdling itself through a universe we really, if we're honest with ourselves, can't wrap our heads around. One day though, one of the thousands of days you wake up to and walk through and maybe even don't pay much attention to, on one of those days you meet the person who makes it all make sense. When I met her I didn't even think we'd be what we are, but she made it all The Truth right away. Everything I'd always believed (and preached at many of you) about love and friendship. About having it all in one relationship. That "The Real Thing" exists - love, tenderness, friendship, sexy, hot, goofy, ridiculous, all of it in one place. So I asked her to marry me and that's what we'll do:) I'm the luckiest man on this rock this weekend, without question. β€οΈπŸ’#engaged
