2012 was a monumental year for me, both personally and professionally. One of the things that was transformative for me was learning to dress well after several false starts.

Not earth-shattering news by any stretch of the imagination, but for this dad, a major step toward getting back in shape after an arduous two-year hiatus. Now that Charlie’s sleeping more normally, I’ve decided to hit the gym three times per week in the evenings. I’m not quite ready to give up the additional sleep […]
