I have a "type"

Over the years as I've been attracted to different men, I've often wondered...do I have a "type"?

There's the worship leader. Or the laid-back surfer. Or the strong but silent type. The tall, the blonde, the athlete, the intelligent guy, the life of the party, the high school teacher, the dark hair/light eyes combo, the bulky, the skinny, the glasses look, the outdoorsy guy, the bible study leader type, the businessman, the goofball, the freckles, the short hair, the long hair. I have found all of those to be attractive in some form or another.

But my friends, I have finally realized I have a "type".

I am attracted to tall brown-haired nerds who wear Converse.

Exhibit A: Ned the piemaker (Lee Pace) from Pushing Daisies.

Exhibit B: Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) from the TV show Chuck

Exhibit C: the 10th doctor (David Tennant) from the BBC show Doctor Who

(After having many friends tell me about it, I have recently become obsessed with Doctor Who. I am currently at the end of Season 3.)

So I guess what I'm saying is if you're reading this and you're a tall nerdy guy with brown hair...buy a pair of Chuck Taylors and come on over.

On the eve of Thanksgiving, here are some things I am thankful for (in no particular order):

My parents, sisters, nephews, new godson Cody, my amazing friends, my house with fun roomates, my job, church, health, SF Giants, laughter, sun, rain, the way I feel after I go running, dogs, Disneyland, hot chocolate, holidays, deep breaths, sleep, music, good books, the ocean, redwood trees, talking, silence, fresh air, seasons, learning new things every day, dancing, movies, Hawaii, good food, sunsets.

And most of all, I am thankful for Jesus. Because of him, I know what true love is. Because of him, I am forgiven, changed, and have hope for tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

My godson, Cody

May I introduce my 10-week-old godson, Cody.

I have been in Southern Cal all week spending time with this little munchkin.

I don't want to come home.

I don't want to leave this face!

Sometimes you just need to go outside when the sun is setting.

And watch it set.

And breathe in.

And breathe out.

And thank God for this life.

I love voting.

It's a great feeling.

Like freedom and democracy and honor and pride for my country all wrapped up together.

I feel blessed to live in America where we have the freedom to vote and make our voices heard.

my 3 favorite kids

I love kids and their Halloween costumes. May I share the costumes of my 3 favorite kiddos?

1) Judah, nephew, almost 4 years old. A fireman.

2) Samuel, nephew, 1 year and 5 months old. A candy rapper. (Get it? Candy (w)rapper?)

3) Cody, godson, 2 months old. He actually had two costumes and they are both awesome.
