A few months back, a co-worker of mine convinced me to join my company's Spartan Race team. He didn't talk it up much: he mentioned it's a long-ish run with a few fun obstacles. You know, no big deal. Something someone who runs as much as me should complete more than easily (read, you don't really need to train for it). Ha ha ha.
Chewie's favorite outdoor locales typically include any grassy surface that has plenty of fire hydrants and possible dog run-ins.

I hadn't even heard of the Menil Collection until I randomly stumbled upon their Facebook page a few months ago (apparently, Houstonians are good at keeping secrets...!). Immediately, I promised myself I'd visit the first sunny weekend I get. Fast-forward a few sunny weekends (life has a way of keeping you busy) and I finally made it this Sunday!
I met Chewie in '08 and he's been a constant in my life ever since. We had a slow start, Chewie and I. My love for him grew slowly yet steadily. So, in honor of our years together, I wanted to share a few fun facts about my best friend...
