And because some of you asked...

Here's a pic of Cassy and I in our ballgowns. I know, who knew we could clean up so nice?

Now Cassy normally doesn't make that face, but we were dancing and our friend just snapped a pic... and this was the only photo of us at the ball where you can see our dresses... and let's just hope she doesn't kill me for posting this pic!

Waving Shyly

So, yes, it has been awhile since I've updated this blog. Something about Advent and Christmas maybe. But enough with the excuses - on to the witty and brilliant insights.

*chirp, chirp*

Okay, well, I seem to be insightless today but I can share with you some excitement.

Some friends and I went to the Inauguration last week and I'm still all aglow. I wanted to go for the history of the moment - something to tell my kids/nieces and nephews about - but got something I didn't expect. I had no idea that with 2+ million people gathering, there would be such love expressed among strangers. All those people, all that stressful crowding and traveling at a crawl down streets, and everyone was so kind to one another. Sometimes you see the worst in humanity but I have to say, I think I saw some of the simplest best.
