It Still Happened — I’m Trying to Break the Oversharing Habit


If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? Or, how about this…

If a birthday party, or a delicious meal, or a family outing takes place, but it isn’t Tweeted, Instagrammed, or Facebooked — did it really happen?

do i love you more?


Nathaniel was born in 1998. Rachael came in 2001. Peyton arrived in 2003.

He also asked if he could write in a few more...
