Today, I Marched

Today, I marched.

Today, I stood up for my beliefs, publicly and peacefully.

Today, I walked side by side with some of my best friends and my mama - as well as thousands of people locally and millions of people world wide.

Today, I took for the first step for action.

Let me be clear: I DID NOT MARCH BECAUSE I AM A SORE LOSER.  I don't care that "my side" lost.  There was nowhere near this kind of outpouring of protests when ANY OTHER president was elected in history.  I have a great deal of respect for many of the GOP leaders, even when our beliefs don't align. 

I marched because I believe that bluntness, tactlessness, bullying, and name-calling is unacceptable behavior for a president.  I marched because boasting of sexual assault is unacceptable, no matter who you are.  I marched because science and facts should always trump opinion.  I marched because kindness and respectful language matters.  I marched because America is already great - and building walls, insulting nations, ruining our environment, and destroying the public school system will not make our country stronger, more successful, and better.

Isla's First Snowfall

Isla experienced her first snowfall.  She wasn't too sure what to think about it - just took it all in in her classic quiet observing way.

Snow Day!

This week has been CRAZY!  School was supposed to resume for Cole on Tuesday, but we had a small storm (and around here, ANY amount of snow flurries equals canceled school!), then a HUGE storm Tuesday night into Wednesday.  It was spectacular! And since Medford owns zero plows, the snow turned to packed ice and schools canceled for Thursday and Friday as well.  A whole extra week of Christmas break!

 Playing in the snow is SO much fun - even more exciting and special when we never have it!

 And even though I'm pretty sure I've spent the majority of this week putting on and taking off snow gear off various children, it's been worth it to see these happy cold faces!

Serious Miss

Isla is currently my favorite photo subject - partly because she is so incredibly adorable and partly because she can't run away from me like my other favorite subjects!

While she's often super serious, occasionally she'll light up with the brightest, gummiest, most adorable grin ever!

Oh my heart, this sweet, serious little miss!
