Keven Hempel Uncategorized Leave a Comment

On Easter Sunday my family and I ventured out and went to a party at a friends house. A good time was held by all, there was great food, great drinks and some pretty awesome dessert.

Sitting around the table playing pictionary! “Though the game was fierce and my team won, (which …

Keven Hempel Uncategorized Leave a Comment

This problem was poised to me by a subcontractor and after much verbal conversation with the issue I decided to chalk it over to a GC for their point of view. Since I have been on both sides of the issue I can understand where things can get misconstrued or look as if there is something different going on behind the scene.

Often times I feel like we are in a race. A race against ourselves, a race against time a race against life, a race to raise our children and a race to spend the rest of our lives together always looking at the next phase or the next step and goal.   Every time I feel this way I take a moment to do some introspective thinking.

There’s a huge world to conquer out there. Things to see, people to meet, places to take in.
