Everything’s A Post

Running through Whole foods snatching up the cheese cubes and warm apple cider samples while Jen covers her face in embarrassment that she married a 7-year old mind in a 25-year old body? That’s a post!

Jen giggling at me because I thought a “Chi” was a type of far-eastern zen-like yoga instead of a straightening iron for women’s hair? That’s a post!

The old (and possibly semi-mentally handicapped?) man working at Michael’s asking me if my “Cowboy Baseball” t-shirt meant the Dallas Cowboys were starting a baseball team? That’s DEFINITELY a post!

We had a conversation the other day about how everything we do, say, eat, think, and dream could be a post. As our friend Lindsay puts it, you just start thinking in post.

This becomes cumbersome because every time I get home, Jen has the camera out and we take pictures of each other like each of us is a little baby doing something for the first time. But it’s also fun because thinking of posts has become like 2923x easier after doing this for 6 months than it was initially.

And it’s reminded us of this grander truth:

Each day, by the way we live, we post on the blog that is our legacy. Some days, more than others, will be great posts — helpful, relevant, creative posts that touch and inspire. Others will be abysmal. But we’re learning to look for ways to make our posts (both written and lived) more meaningful and (hopefully) helpful to those around us.

I'm an aspiring freelance writer and blogger (which doesn't make a ton of sense when you think about it). I started a blog called Our Marriage Project and one about OSU called Pistols Firing. I love both of them, and I love my wife. And I love Kevin Durant, Explosions in the Sky, Tim Riggins, Blue Moon ale, Twitter, and the state of Georgia.
