Tomorrow I will heading south of the Mason-Dixon line into armadillo country. New Orleans, here I come! My fabulous sister is graduating on Saturday. With a double major. In neurobiology and art history. She is seriously amazing and the coolest girl I know. Maybe I've mentioned this before...? She'll be staying in NOLA for another year for a master's program at Tulane. In neurobiology. Yes, seriously. And then after that she will be going to medical school. And then after that she'll be a doctor. Like I said, she's top notch. I'm really hoping to visit her next year. Maybe a birthday gift? Hint hint!!
While I'm there, my family is throwing me a bridal shower, which will be so fun and special. We will also be celebrating my dad's 25th birthday, and of course, Jessica's graduation, with various and sundry brunches, lunches, dinners and late night snacks. I can't wait!

(I do most of my posting from "work" and so this most special mother's day post is coming on Monday, and a day late, but most def. not short on any love for my mama.)
Pink is clearly the most amazing color.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom! I love you so much! And I always will.

Next, we have the backswing, perfected from many dedicated hours on the driving range,
completed with the most excellent form ever seen on the follow-through.
The ball will then soar to the exact mark you've envisioned, because your keen sense of direction has proven, once again to be accurate,
Finishing up the gift with:

This story about Hillary Clinton is just one example. I'm not even a big Hillary fan but the ugliness of this really struck me.
What on earth do people gain from being so mean? Why do people act this way? And most unfortunately, I do not think this behavior is limited to the media. I think a lot of people, day to day, don't really take into consideration the others around them. I think a lot of people are self-interested and don't concern themselves with the collatoral damage that gets done in their pursuit of their needs/wants/goals/whatever they think is more important than the next person's needs/wants/goals. Who told them that the next person doesn't matter, and is only a gnat to be swatted away?
I am in the middle of one such situation, and have been absolutely appalled by a group of people's absolute disregard for another person's best interest, let alone their feelings. When did people stop living the Golden Rule?
I do believe in the good in people--the deli man who remembers me and makes my morning by stepping outside to say hello to me. My doorman, who without fail, answers "Never been better!" to my nightly "Hi Harris, how are you today?" The workers at the gym who learned my name and say hi everytime I walk in.
I hope those people know how much I appreciate their kindnesses.

As Charlotte says to Lizzy in Pride & Prejudice, "It is such a pleasure to run my own home."
I can't wait! I move in mid-May and Justin will join me after the wedding!
I think we'll be exceedingly happy.
We can't wait for you to come visit us!
