Ten Years

I can’t believe it’s been ten years. Ten years since we lost you. Ten years since our first son, Lukas, was born still. So much has happened. So much didn’t get to happen. I’ve thought about this every day for ten years, and I hope I never stop. My thoughts have shifted as Ian has…

Sorry Gun People, I don’t Understand

Yesterday evening my wife and I arrived home to Owasso, Oklahoma, and rushed in to hug our son. We had been gone on a long weekend trip with some friends to celebrate one of their birthdays. We went to Las Vegas. Being from Oklahoma, we are around gun people a lot. Many of my closest…

7 Years…happy birthday Lukas

I wrote this post twice. Version 1 was a pretty sad recap of what this week looked like for Kami and I seven years ago. The week we lost our first son, Lukas Clark Moore. Then, after picking up Ian from summer camp, I went outside to play a bit with our dog Blue and…

15th Anniversary

We’ve come a long way since we said “I Do” 15 years ago this morning. It was a short and sweet ceremony in the church where your parents were married in our home town of Chandler. We were best friends deciding to make it more and start a life together after knowing each other for…

Rest In Peace Gracie Jo

Last night my wife and I had to say good bye to the first addition to our family. I still remember the day we picked Gracie up, she fell asleep in Kami’s arms as we looked at her siblings trying to decided which one would be added to our family. At that point, Kami and…

What’s in a logo…for a guy that makes logos?

As a guy that makes logos for other businesses, organizations, and individuals I have strangely neglected my own logo for more than 15 years. I drew something back in college, liked it and left it alone for some strange reason. It was ugly, meaningless, and really I am not sure what I was thinking using…

Five Years…we miss you Lukas

It is hard to believe that it has been 5 years since our first son, Lukas was born still. I can still hear the echo of the doctor’s voice when we were told there was no heartbeat and I remember nearly every aspect of the three days that would follow. Without a doubt the hardest…

What My Toddler Has Taught Me About Business – Everyone Loves a Routine

So over the past 15 years of working in the non-profit world, advertising agencies, freelancing, consulting and now working with a large web development firm I have had the privilege of dealing with a lot of business relationships. Whether they are internal with co-workers, external with clients or vendors, or even working with customers buying…

Successfully Working from Home Can be Tricky

I have worked from home full or part-time for the past 7(ish) years and I have learned a lot about how to be successful working in the same location you eat, sleep, watch TV, and play. A lot of people think working from home would be the best thing ever…while others are terrified of the…

Potty Training, A One-Eyed Dog and Garth Brooks

It has been quite a week. My wife and I have been (impatiently) waiting on Ian to become interested in potty training. All of our friends have warned us about boys being difficult, and they have said it would just all of a sudden take hold. Well they were right…sort of. Potty training is at…
