About Me


My name is Mike. You probably clicked on “About” because you’re curious on what type of website you just landed on and what it’s all about.

I have no answer for you.

I started this blog in 2017 because I wanted an outlet that wasn’t limited to 280 characters on my Twitter page, and I wanted to expand my thoughts, insights, and story-telling to a circle larger than just my friends and family on Facebook.

Additionally, people have told me “you should start a blog”, and being the Minnesota-nice person that I am; I didn’t want to let them down. I’m happily married with 3 little kiddos (5, 3, 1) living in the rural suburbs of Minneapolis. My blog posts will most likely be focused on random stories that happen to me in my daily life, parenting stories, cooking/grilling tries and fails; but most importantly this will be my attempt to get you to smile. Right now, the year is 2020 and the entire world is living through something that most of us have never dealt with before. The least I can do is get some smiles to filter through the overwhelming negativity on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, ABC; or any other news outlet.

No controversy here-I promise.

I love to make people laugh, so my posts will be light-hearted and my writing style is like I’m talking to you in person. To accomplish this, I use an excessive amount of commas, dashes, parenthesis, and semi-colons. So, calm down all of you “grammar police”.

Thank you so much for checking this out, I really appreciate it. Enjoy!
