Taking Off the Training Wheels – The First Bike Ride

I feel like learning to ride a bike comes with a special sense of freedom and adventure. It's a big milestone for a child and the start of a newfound sense of freedom.

The Ten Year Challenge: 2009 vs 2019

On Facebook and Instagram I keep seeing people's "2009 vs 2019" or #10yearchallenge posts and it got me thinking about how different things are now.

The Sex Tea Experiment Didn’t Go as Planned
