In between leaving Boston and restarting in Phoenix I had a few lovely days off back in NJ. Cruised down to LBI for MDW with the likes of Lauren, JJ, and Nate – 50/50 mix of sunshine and rain and I loved both. Caught up with Philly Peanuts to celebrate his new house in Fair Lawn, NJ.Kicked off the wedding festivities of young H in Little Neck, Long Island for the rehearsal dinner.


Goodbye, Mass

Goodbyes are never easy. Luckily for me I’ve run threw a few within the past few months. I will always look back on my time in Boston as a wonderful experience – the people I met, the work we’ve built, and the family I love. Big shout to ClearGov for all they offered me and all they continue to offer the world. Bigger shout to Bryan and Nancy for hosting a 40 year old child in their home for 6 months. Oysters, Trillium, Crossfit, The Bruins, snowblowers, just to name a few. Going to miss it all!

Graduation Weekend, #GTFLO

Congrats to Hunter for graduating from Nazereth College in Rochester, NY a few weeks ago. Drove up from MA (a solid 6 hours) to ‘the roch’ in time for dinner @ Dinosaur BBQ – great spot. Spent the later evening with Hunter, Conner, and Hunter’s posse for one last college weekend. $2 beers – I’ll eat.

Spent Saturday morning having lunch with some other senior families, followed by the famous Rochester Lilac Festival. Had the opportunity to Get The Led Out, thanks to a decent cover band. Dinner @ The Genesee BrewHouse, and the graduation Sunday morning. Awesome stuff! 


Big shout to my mom & the MC for a great birthday weekend. You don’t turn 29 that often, so I had to make sure that this was a great one. Drove home from MA on Friday afternoon and sat through pouring rain and traffic – a fair Northeast tradeoff.

Got to NJ around 6 to a full spread prepared by my mom. Hung hard (see pics below) and couldn’t be more grateful for the greatest collection of friends known to man. We say it all the time – but people are lucky to still have 1 friend from high school since graduating 10 years ago; we have a brotherhood of ~10.

Next day cruised to Hoboken with my mom to watch my cousin Hunter’s Nazereth Men’s Lacrosse team beat Steven’s Tech in OT to win a playoff berth and win the Empire 8. Beers at the ‘garden afterward, followed by lunch in New Brunswick and a night cap @ JMB’s.
