There’s a first time for everything…

This blog is my way of sharing my experiences, joys, frustrations, triumphs, failures, trials and tribulations of being a first-time father.  Everything is new to me…or at least it was!  All you need to do is simply take a moment to read a few lines, paragraphs or posts (depending on how you’re feeling) and be the judge for yourself.

My name is Dennis Brown, I am 41 years old and I grew up in a sleepy little beach community called El Segundo, which borders LAX airport near  Los Angeles, CA.  It’s a tight knit community, in which a massive percentage of its residents are born, bred, live and die there. It’s equally comforting and creepy at the same time!  But, then again, whose home town doesn’t share that dubious duality in some way, shape or form?  Honestly?

A few years ago, after many different jobs in many different industries, I began teaching and absolutely loved it!  Shortly thereafter, I met a girl through a mutual friend one night and was awestruck! That was the last time I spoke with my “friend,” and thus, had no way to find this amazing girl…

Two months later, serendipity stepped in, allowing me to find her again.  From that day forward, we’ve been together through thick and thin (even when we’d rather not), come hell or high water!

Since then, we’ve had a son, moved residences (across town and across the country), changed professions and lifestyles.  It’s a constant test of who we are, what we believe in, what we’re working towards and how to achieve them.

This blog is a chronicle of that journey, containing many side trips, tangents and anecdotes to help keep things in (or, is it out of) perspective.  My blog will also be a source of advise on multiple subjects across many platforms covering numerous topics in various arenas. Wow! That was a mouthful!

Your thoughts will prove to be invaluable, so don’t be shy! Your input can and will be a driving force in the direction and tone of this blog…
