mstrukel Bunker Hill's steps were such a bitch to climb that I'm counting it as its own work out day. 1d

  •   lizgiorgi Are you at Red Rocks? I live in Denver these days, so you're in for a great show! And a great time in general. Hit up Little Man ice cream if you haven't already! 2w
  •   mstrukel We were! @lizgiorgi That's crazy...we didn't buy ice cream from Little Man but we ate right next door at Linger. Cool concept for a restaurant! Just got back into Philly tonight. Wish I would have known you lived there! 2w
  •   lizgiorgi Linger is great. And it looks like you got out to some really fun stuff! Glad you enjoyed it. I really love it here. 2w

mstrukel It rained basically all day today, but when you have good coffee and friends, it doesn't really matter. We laughed all day anyway. @tstrukel @jenni2113 3w

mstrukel Sunsets look a little different from the air. I feel like these next three days off were well earned and I intend to enjoy every bit of it. 3w

mstrukel Once a year we take time to give our fathers the proper thanks they deserve. They are the backbone of the family. They are the ones that give the tough love that is needed and make their children stronger and more independent to succeed in whatever we put our minds to. They support us, encourage us, and provide for us so humbly. The time they spend with us in all the little moments teach us about the kind of men they are, and the kind of person we strive to be. The moments with my dad have always been so simple: biking, camping, canoeing, fishing, and the occasional math homework argument; but in those moments growing up I have come to realize what an honest, funny, and full-of-life kind of person my father is who would do just about anything for his wife, children, and grandchildren. It may have taken years, but I now know how lucky I am to have this man in my life and for all that he has taught me. Those moments were lessons in life that I will never forget. Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there that use those moments to lead by example in their children's lives. We love and respect you for all that you do. 1mon

mstrukel Sometimes NJ looks so much like MN. ️ "Home wasn't a set house, or a single town on a map. It was wherever the people who loved you were, whenever you were together. Not a place, but a moment, and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you take with you for your entire life, wherever you may go." 2mon

mstrukel Today, we set aside some time to say thank you to all those unique mothers out there. If every mother was the same, we wouldn't have a very interesting world. A mother recognizes how each and every child needs different kinds of love, attention, and nurturing to raise the best possible person they can. That love doesn't come without stress, anger, exhaustion, and hurt along the way, but their unconditional love conquers the hard days of parenting. As an adult, I'm now only recognizing the selfless sacrifices mothers make to make their children happy. There is no perfect mother, but for all the love and support throughout the years and for raising me and pushing me to be as kind and generous as she is, I'd say she's pretty damn close to a perfect mother. I don't know what I'd do without her. Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers with kids that feel the exact same way as I do. We don't say how much we love you enough. 3mon

mstrukel Last night in Arizona, spent at Chase Field with my two sisters. I couldn't ask for more thoughtful, generous, and motivated individuals to look up to. 4mon
