I’m proudly as close to a brother-in-law as I will ever be.
Last weekend, on Sunday, August 15th, Sarah Singleton became betrothed to one of my best friends, Michael Skvarla. I was proud to be a member of the groom’s party, and dare I say, I looked rather dashing in my tux along side of 5 of my best friends. 😉
Our annual journey to the Sirna family reunion was a little longer than usual. Typically, we have the reunion at Rocky Gap State Park in Maryland, but this year’s coordinator lives in the beautiful, quiet (and remote) town of Rock Hall, MD.
Mom, Doug, my grandmother and I made the journey to Rock Hall in my little Toyota, and got in town just in time for an all-you-can-eat crab feast.
Before I let Valerie go back to London for another 5 months, I had to get her out of the house for a little while, so we took a drive down to my old stomping grounds in Western Maryland. On the way, we stopped to admire the Ohiopyle falls. We got to bask in the 80 degree weather, and I got to snap some really pretty pictures of Val:
My eyes peeled open, crusty with disbelief. I… I survived it? I survived Sturgis?
It wasn’t a normal vacation, but then again, it wasn’t really a vacation at all. My uncle John is the CEO of a small startup company called MotoringUSA. This year, the company had the opportunity to work along side the city of Sturgis, SD and plan the entire Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. We arranged all of the corporate sponsors, vendors and events. My role was to act as the city of Sturgis photographer and to capture imagery for next year’s magazine.
