An Ode To Spring Time

Howdy guys,

It has been a while since my last blog post, and I just wanted to take a moment to remedy that. The calender has now turned to April which means that next month will already mark the one-year anniversary of the day I started this blog. I began this blog back in May of 2013 simply because I came out of college as a guy who knew that he wanted to write for a living, and I figured that starting a blog about the things that I enjoy would be a good vehicle to help me get started down that path. I am a guy who simply loves getting his thoughts down on paper and being a storyteller, and I plan on writing a book someday. I am very thankful for all of you who have followed me, read my posts, and commented on them.

The fact that it is now April also means that warmer weather is finally on the way. The photograph above shows our pal ,Karli, who many of you have read about, laying on the grass back in June of 2010. Believe me, she is certainly looking forward to the change of seasons as well!

Of course, April also means that baseball season is now underway which many of you know is very important to me. Besides, one can trace the "Alpha-Maleness" of baseball all the way back to Babe Ruth, so I should be writing about it on this blog more frequently!

I grew up with the sport of baseball and I will never forget the sights, sounds, and smells that spring brought for me. I can still hear the pinging of the aluminum bats, the sound of cleats on a dirt infield, the chirping of the birds and I can still smell the freshly cut grass. And as far as I am concerned, there is nothing that will ever match the smell of a brand new leather baseball glove. The time I spent on the baseball fields with my dad and my brother, and the teams I played on from T-ball through high school, will always remain a part of who I am. I can also remember where I was on Opening Day of Major League Baseball season every year for at least the past decade!

Spring is also turkey season in many states, which I know is a hobby of many people who have followed this blog and added me to their circles. If you are going out, I hope you have a great time and I wish you the best of luck.  

To wrap things up, I just wanted to let you all know that I am going to make a serious commitment to rebooting this blog, and I plan on inducing quality content into it on a weekly basis from here on out. My blog is very important to me, and although it has taken me much longer to get it to take off than I had originally hoped, please believe me when I say that I still mean to see it flourish.

Thank you all very much for reading, and please feel free to let me know what your favorite part of spring is!

Till next time,
