Jon Marshall, a thirtysomething plastic surgeon, has come a long way. He's a partner in his own medical practice, owns a house in the suburbs, and cruises town in a BMW. He also has a six-month-old daughter, Lily, affectionately known as the Bean.

But Jon's life hasn't taken the path he thought it would in his twenties. Newly single, he's facing the challenges of dating in a post-Duran-Duran world. His computer has been seized by surly software. He accidentally peed on his date's cat. And while the Bean reminds him of life's possibilities every day, his new running buddy, Ashley, reminds him that relationship rules were made to be broken.

But it is these mundane details of every day that also make up our own lives, and like Jon, we just have to laugh at ourselves and make the best of it…and take lots of pictures.
