Today is Hank and I’s 10 year anniversary and it couldn’t have been more perfect. He had today off, and it was the first time in 3 or 4 years that we’ve been able to be together on our anniversary. We woke up, had a late breakfast at a great local diner, had coffee at our fav kinda bougie place, watched True Blood, went on a long bike ride, hung out more, dressed up and went to a great Japanese/sushi place near us, had awesome gourmet ice cream, and came home and stumbled upon a Nee Belgium event right behind our apartment. I’m finishing off the day sitting on a blanket on the grass with him, watching short movies on a big projector and drinking a sour beer. So lucky, perfect day.
Interesting how we’re always hearing how shameful and irresponsible it is to be a teen mom.
But we never hear the same messages directed at teen dads.
Or even the words “teen dad”.
It’s almost like society demonizes women’s sexuality and sexual choices while absolving men of all sexual responsibility and judgement.

I love that I can immediately tell that these are Alvin Ailey dancers. He’s one of my favorites and I would die if I could see one of his shows.
I love my neighborhood. Beltline Lantern Parade 2014. (at The Atlanta Beltline: Northeast Corridor)
Hank got off earlier than expected and surprised me with lilies and boba. Luckiest girl in the world 😍😍😍
I just worked for 2 hours on a cover letter/job application for a really cool organization, so I’m rewarding myself with a green smoothie and a long bike ride.
