Hi Everyone, I’m new to the blogging world but wanted to share and track my progress on what everyone tells me will be a very long journey so I decided to give this blog a try. I picked up the name Bode in college, short for bodacious–which I will need a lot of to survive this road to recovery. I live in the Twin Cites, MN and am glad to hopefully be walking by springtime. I’m married to an awesome gal from Ohio who after 20 years is still my best friend and a super fantastic wife! I’m also blessed with two amazing children who have already been so helpful chasing things down for me.
