The Things I Love About Indy

June 2, 2016 By Tom

I talked about it briefly the other day, but last week I had a chance to combine the bicycle with a historic tour of Indianapolis for a bunch of high school students. It got my wheels turning (no pun intended) on my truly favorite spots of this city, why they’re favorites, and how they’re all […]

Surviving Survivor’s Syndrome (six years later)

May 31, 2016 By Tom

my goal with this blog has always been to not only talk about the good stuff in life, but real life, and as we all know–real life isn’t always perfect and happy and what most people post in Instagram. This post is a little bit more serious than usual, because, this week marks 6 years […]

Do you wanna start it off? Just to see how it will end?

May 25, 2016 By Tom

It’s been a month filled with media attention, logistical planning for expansion, and staying above the fray in terms of my own sanity. In a lot of ways, I don’t even know where to begin in terms of capturing the awesomeness of these last few weeks. It’s been humbling, it’s been overwhelming, and it’s kept […]

She’s Topless (and doorless) and It’s May

May 22, 2016 By Tom

The Jeep is topless, doorless, and ready to party. And that’s how I know it’s May. From spending time out at the Speedway to Sunday bloody mary’s in Broadripple–it’s my favorite time of year in my favorite city. Maybe the sun is making everything look brighter. Maybe the beer is making everything look better. But […]

A Love Note to my True Love, Indy.

May 12, 2016 By Tom

Indy, You’re beautiful, smart, witty, keep me in check, and make me feel all tingly inside. I’m not sure what I did to deserve you. I’ve known you for what seems like forever, but it’s really been the last few years that saw me fall head over heels for you. Maybe it’s because you’ve grown […]

29 Things I’ve Learned Before 30

April 29, 2016 By Tom

So, it goes without saying, if you followed Denver’s blog, you knew she loved lists. I’m channeling my inner-Denver and writing this. In full disclosure: I’m writing this after midnight after a long day, but I’ll own these words. I had an incredible evening with amazing people. That being the description on tonight should suffice, […]

Pacing, Stressing, and Along for the Ride

April 14, 2016 By Tom

A big ball of stress. That’s the best way to describe me this week. Tonight we find out how Nine13 fared in the Lids Foundation Tip the Hat contest at their awards gala. It’s been a pins and needles week as we wait to find out if we won $125,000, $75,000, $50,000, or $25,000. It’s […]
