Embarking on a New Endeavor


Today the last of my equipment came in and we completed a successful test.

The goal is to do a weekly podcast, about 30-45 minutes long, covering -well everything!

We're going to talk about raising our son, working full-time, taking care of a home, entertaining friends and taking care of ourselves. 

We'll see how this goes. I don't have any delusions about why I'm doing it. We're going to do it primarily to document our lives with raising our son.  My ultimate goal is doing it because I've been searching for a Dad podcast that is honest, engaged and talks about all the positions in a family, not just the traditional mom/dad roles.  Going through our IVF-Surrogacy Journey it was all about traditional male and female roles.

We'll talk about that, and lots of other things.  We'll share our favorite recipes, design tips and tricks, DIY tips, books, products and procedures that have worked for us.  We hope you enjoy it and come hang with us. 

See you soon!

National Coming Out Day

I totally didn't even realize today was national coming out day! We took a picture to mark the occasion.  A lot of people post and share their stories today.  Sharing their struggles and their triumphs over the hurdles, or even walls, surrounding the ability to live their truths.  Dustin and I have very different stories of our coming outs.  He's been living his truth for just about a decade before I came out to my family and more importantly to myself.  Coming out is not for everyone and today is certainly not meant to give you anxiety about coming out or not. You might find yourself in a variety of situations; from being a public personality, a conservative family, your own fears and so many other possibilities. Its not always easy.  For some, yes, its easy, you grow up in a family where you know without a shadow of a doubt that you'll be accepted for who you are.  We know, better than most, that its different for everyone.  Most of all, you do you, we'll be her

Week 24: Viability...

A lot has happened in the last month...seriously A LOT. "So why did you wait so long to post, Ryan?? "  Because I was busy!  Schedule changes at work, pushing hard to get our renovations finished, baby showers, renovations, much happening. Let's start with travel....I don't want to bury the lead story here. We went up to Wisconsin for our 21 week anatomy scan.  Dustin flew up on a Wednesday for the Thursday morning appointment. Unfortunately July is a big vacation month for my department, and save for asking co-workers to change their vacation plans with their families...I stayed behind. It was going to be hard, but I kept telling myself that its just pictures. I will have the REST of my life to spend with Beastie.  This is a cool appointment, but its just an internal photo shoot.  What really sucked was that they wouldn't be able to shoot any pictures or video in the ultrasound room.       Fast forward to the morning of the appointment.  I tex
