Yes, the time has come. I am officially 365 days sober. If I’m being honest, I thought sobriety would be a fresh, clear-eyed beginning to a life full of never-ending joy and success. But, sometimes it feels more like a never-ending marathon, and I hate to run. There’s a reason you don’t see endless lines, velvet ropes, and clipboard holding hosts in front of AA meetings. I know, I know... this probably isn’t the inspiring, hopeful, message you were anticipating from a guy who just celebrated one year sober. We’ll get to that. But don’t let people fool you, sobriety...

Last night, I was searching for light…then it dawned on me (see what I did there) 😉 I love Dad jokes…probably more than I love anything on the planet. Yes, I know, you’re all very aware of that. I even started doing a #DailyDad joke on my Instagram where I tell a new joke to a friend, family member, or even… a COMPLETE stranger. It’s glorious. And yes, I’m also well aware of how annoying it is… but I don’t care. It brings me joy, and that’s all that matters. And isn’t that what life’s all about right there? Finding areas...

This past week, I celebrated 100 days sober. And by celebrated I mean, I didn’t drink…I know, shocking right? I used to see people post inspiring, long-winded before and after pictures on Facebook and roll my eyes thinking, “Yeah, yeah, yeah. We get it, guy. Good for you…” Now I understand why they did so. It was ridiculously hard. And no, not because I laid in my bed with the shakes from withdrawals or anything weird like how the movies portray it to be. It was hard because the anxiety of not being in the scene anymore ate at me...

My parents are old-fashioned. They love each other unconditionally and treat one another the way a husband and wife should. I think a big part of them being this way has to do with the fact that neither of them drink – ever. I know, right? How the hell is that even possible? Don’t worry, […]

And you thought 2016 was bad… Unless you were living under a rock or got engaged, I’m sure you concluded that 2017 was rough AF. Between “Cash me Outside” becoming an actual thing, political hysteria with our new President tweeting his way to war with everyone, mass shootings & terror attacks, deadly natural disasters, shocking celebrity deaths, racial tensions, police violence, United Airlines beating up passengers, and countless sexual misconduct charges – you could say 2017 was a year that will never be forgotten…devastatingly enough. I feel like the Mayans were right, maybe the world really did end in 2012....
