I was lucky enough to visit the beautiful island of Kauai for a team meetup this past week. It was my second time in Hawaii, and it’s a place I could easily visit once a year.
My Orient Mako and Nixon 51-30 are now sporting new leather. The 51-30 was originally attached to a 25mm SS bracelet, which was too obnoxious and bulky. I replaced it with a 26mm Stone Mustang with dark blue stitching from Panatime. It took me much longer to get the bracelet off that I’m comfortable to admit.
My Orient Mako (quickly becoming my favorite watch) got a new leather strap with white and blue stitching (perfectly matching the face and bezel) from Crown & Buckle, replacing the original black rubber band.
My first Seiko 5. The canvas strap is already as good as gone.
Quiet and waiting on a new leather strap from Crown & Buckle.
Happy Holidays, y’all.
A wedding in Stevensville, MD (just across the Bay Bridge from Annapolis) at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club.
That’s it. Our final vacation and relaxation before the baby enters the world in about a month. The hospital bag is packed, the name is chosen, and the nursery is ready. And after a week spent cruising around Absecon Island and Cape May County, I think we’re ready. It’s my favorite place in the world, and although Chrissy isn’t quite sold on moving there permanently yet, I’ll be happy when I can have our daughter chime in at some point. I know she’ll see things Daddy’s way.
Another year, another fireworks gallery. This is officially our last July 4th fireworks display without a child to enjoy them with.
I haven’t picked up a bass since high school (we’re going back 10 years here), but I wanted to get back into it and find my rhythm again before my daughter arrives. If I can’t play Rancid’s ‘Journey to the End of the East Bay’ (one of the greatest bass lines of all time) at her bedtime, what good am I as a father?
