Erika reminded me that I hadn’t posted these photos yet. Last month, we realized that the largest corn maze in the world was really close to where we live, so we picked pumpkins and adventured into the corn maze! I love Fall!
What a great Friendsgiving! Thank you Austin, Erika, Stephen, Jenny, Josh, Abby, and Shianda! Hopefully next year I can plan a little bit better and have even more friends over at our house! So much delicious food! Grateful for friendships.
My blog turned 6 today! I can’t thank everyone for all your loving support and friendship over the last 6 years. Just think, I started this blog in 2007, when I had just started grad school. To my 50,000+ followers, you make my heart smile so big. I LOVE YOU guys so much! Let’s plan more real life adventures together please!
When a person who normally charges $100 for their services gives you a pro-bono session, what you are getting is a service that is more expensive than their going rate.
It’s not because they are losing out on $100. Money can be supplemented.
What they are losing is time. Time they could spend on their work. On higher paying clients. Time having sex. Or sleeping. Or eating a really delicious meal somewhere.
Anything else but doing something for you, for nothing.
If you cannot see the real cost of someone doing a favor for you, it’s probably cheaper to pay them the $100.00.
(On the flip side, if you are constantly giving away services you normally charge for, you might want to reconsider what you value.)
My friend Bassam is making this incredible guitar tuner, ROADIE. Check out the video above to see what it does, and if it’s something you’re into you can back it on Kickstarter to get one for less than the retail price!

Hundreds are dead, Thousands are missing. Millions are affected. The affected lost homes, family members, food, and courage. The Philippines is in jeopardy right now because of the Super Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan.
Here are a couple of links for articles:
The affected people had nothing to eat and it makes them aggressive, therefore forcing the government troops to be alarmed and use force to keep law and order. Children and women are curled up in the cold with no shelter. Men are losing their hopes because they don’t know where to get food for their families. The Visayas and Mindanao has been through a lot this year.
Please send help, for the country really needs it now, more than ever.
