Shining a positive light!


I was recently approached by the National Marketing Manager of Strasburg Children. FYI.. Strasburg Children manufactures and sales classic special occasion children's clothing in 85 locations throughout the United States. I was ask to contribute to the retailer's website as a guest blogger. Strasburg selected less than 20 bloggers from around the country to write about the joys of parenthood. It's an interesting project that will be accessed through World Press. In addition, the blog will be linked to Strasburg Children's corporate retail website.

I am very excited about this new endeavor as it has the potential to reach a very broad audience. It's a great way to educate readers about the joys of open adoption. In addition, this will afford me the opportunity to shine a positive light on same sex couples growing families through adoption.

Check out the link below to read my introductory blog! By the way... I will continue to post and keep Daddy Times Two updated regularly.

Strasburg Children


I get tons of comments and emails about Brase's outfits. It seems that lots of viewers want to know my favorite place to shop.  My choice is Strasburg Children. This retailer has wonderful classic clothing for infants and children of all ages.  The thing I love the most about Strasburg clothing is the beautiful finishing touches and details.  Check out all the timeless styles offered via the Strasburg Children's website.  Happy shopping!


Back to the Basics of Love (Luckenbach, Texas)




Luckenbach, Texas really does exist!

This tiny Texas ghost town was memorialized by country singers Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson way back in 1977.  Since then people from around the globe flock to Luckenbach to take in the western sites from the porch of the combination general store, saloon and post office.  Today, it's a Texas institution that draws country music fans far and wide.  Visitors converge on Luckenbach's dance hall and enjoy some of country music's best performers. 

Check out the link below for concert info or get a fancy t-shirt (like the one Brase is sporting). 

By the way... Thanks Mimi for the t-shirt!!!!



Let's go to Luckenbach Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're livin' got us feuding
Like the Hatfields and McCoys
Between Hank William's pain songs
And Newberry's train songs
And blue eyes cryin' in the rain
Out in Luckenbach Texas
There ain't nobody feelin' no pain
