The 2015 Ten26 Design Calendar is here and if we do say so ourselves it is our best yet. For 8 years we have created a piece that represents where we are in our lives, business and relationships. This past year has been quite an experience and made us realize that the world is full of “beautiful reasons to be happy.”
At Ten26 Design we like to give back where and when we can which is why I am a proud member of More Than Sport. What is More Than Sport, you ask? We’ll I will gladly tell you… It is an organization dedicated to encouraging athletes to give back and participate in sport for a greater good other than themselves. I am dedicating this race season, and specifically the Lavaman Triathlon, to raising money for Hope To Give and Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Over the past three years, the Hope To Give team has been working hard to help the hospital purchase a portable Ultrasound Machine for the Rheumatology Department. This would give doctors the ability to provide those tiny patients, that we all love so much, immediate care and information resulting in a more accurate diagnosis and better treatment.
I understand that my goal to raise $10,000 is lofty. I also understand that money is tight with everyone so I have to be realistic. That being said, and I am going to be brutally honest here, my fundraising has been dismal at best. I have had limited interest from those I have contacted so I am trying to sweeten the pot, so to speak. I am going to offer you some incentives for donating your hard earned dollars.
Receive a Hope To Give trucker style hat, and a big thank you from yours truly.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something. I know… shame, shame. But here I am
I thought I would take this opportunity to share some random thoughts and facts, or little nuggets of information if you will, with all of you fine people out there. I hope you find this insightful and even entertaining. Here we go…
1. My most favorite movie of all time is A Christmas Story. Hands down greatest movie ever. End of story.
2. I am NOT a morning person. I could sleep all day. Don’t believe me… give me a chance and I’ll prove it.
3. I am having serious “picking” withdrawals. I need to go antiquing. Who wants to go??
4. Every night before I go to bed, I check on my kids and tuck them in… most of the time more than once. Man I love those little buggers…
