Mike lives in North Florida with his wife, two children, two dogs and a cat missing a piece of her ear named Sadie Mae. He is a 30-something guy trying to balance family, work, gardening, travel and his love of food. When the kids are asleep and the house is quiet he writes two blogs, Black Coffee & Bourbon chronicles the daily circus that is his life, and Sweet Tea & Bourbon which documents his foodie adventures.
I have a hard time sticking with things. I usually will start something and then lose interest. Amazingly, this tendency has not applied to this blog (or for that matter, my food blog). I have no idea why I’ve kept writing considering grammar (see my comma usage), and spelling (thank God for spell check), were two of my least favorite subjects growing up.
2,000 posts is a pretty fair number and its hard to believe I have written that many since Black Coffee & Bourbon started in July 2007. These posts have chronicled passing the Georgia Bar Exam, the birth of both our kids, anniversaries, deaths, two Presidential elections, numerous beers I’ve consumed and countless random observations. My inner historian is happy I’ve jotted down so many things. I just hope when my kids read these pages someday they appreciate having their early years documented. Photo albums are great, but in my humble opinion its pretty cool to have actual observations and feelings documented.
Here’s to 2,000 more posts and all the happiness and tears they may bring!
