Favorite Things

With the mid-term elections over, I breath a sigh of relief that the negativity is behind us, and we can move forward to a more productive and positive few months. At least until Congress is back in session.

I wanted to write a blog about favorite things. Things that just make me happy. Perhaps they make you happy too.
