The beast has been tamed. It’s amazing what a good beard trim does to make you feel better /brighten your day.

The aftermath of softball practice. I’m ready to get the season started. (Side note - I really need to trim the beard. It’s getting unruly.) #SoftballSunday #GaySoftball #SuncoastSoftball #Tired #Sweaty #HotMess #TimeToCleanUp #Scruff #Scruffy #Instagay #Bald #BaldAndBearded #Beard #BeardLife #BeardedMen #BeardedHomo

Do I save a vacation day and go to work tomorrow or just take the day to continue my staycation?

When the only blackout being experienced on a Saturday night is when the lights go off in the bedroom... #TodayWasAGoodDay #StayingIn #NightNight #SleepTight #Tired #Scruff #Scruffy #Instagay #Beard #Bald

My #ThrowbackThursday is of my sister, my grandpa, and I. My sister and I have birthdays within days of each other and so our mom posted this picture.
Yesterday, I got to chatting with a really awesome neighbor and she asked about how/when I came out. As I was discussing it, I mentioned telling my grandma and why that was significant. I was so scared to lose those closest to me, which gave me incredible anxiety during that process. That went away when the first thing my grandma said to me was “Your grandpa would have loved you no matter what.” I cried hearing this because, whether I realized it or not, I needed to hear that.

My grandpa and I were super close. In the nearly 9 years I got with him, I have such fond memories. He used to pick me up from school, he used to take me to McDonalds for a happy meal then eat with me at the kitchen table, and he used to make us wait to open Christmas gifts until he woke up, had his coffee, and perched himself in his chair. He was proud of all of my accomplishments, big or small, and we were buddies, which made losing him extremely tough. But when my grandma said what she did, it made me realize nothing would have changed if he were here with us today. That is something I am eternally grateful for and I hope I can continue to make him proud as he watches over me and my family.

Sweating it out by the pool before the daily rain shower hits. Happy 4th everyone!

Much like the sun reflecting off my head, sometimes it’s necessary to reflect on where you’ve been, what you’re doing, and where you want to be.
