Obama and McCain are going at each other's throats. People--friends...are going at each other's throats because of political beliefs. Yes, it's important, but how easily people forget that they are friends when politics are brought into the picture. We're all people right? We're all hurting in different ways right? We are all called to love each other right? We all have different beliefs, and we come from different places. That's what makes it America, and that what makes this country beautiful, so instead of judging others for their political beliefs, lets love them, and see how much further that might take us. :)

Top things I love this week:

1. Pumpkins. I really want to carve one! It brings back memories of the years when I was 12, tick-or-treating around my neighborhood in Wichita, Kansas dressed as a basket of dirty laundry. Best costume of my life. 

2. Blackberry pie. Hello crispy crust. I was sitting at work this morning, and about 9a.m., I began  thinking about a specific time in my childhood. I was in 7th grade and I was friends with a girl named Adrienne Maddox. I went to her house to spend the night once and her mom brought out blackberry pie after dinner. That was 9  years ago. No one should go without blackberry pie that long. Thinking about that gave me a sudden urge to jump into my past, grab a piece, stuff it in (and on) my face and walk around going "Mmm" with purple all over my face. Who cares. It's pie.

3. Shiny things. I love shiny things! I had my silver ring cleaned at the mall the other day and it keeps catching my eye. I saw a detailed black Toyota sitting next to a dirty Lexus at a stoplight. I wanted the Toyota. I love shiny black paint! I love shiny shoes. I love bright shiny Christmas Ornaments. I love clean shiny windows that reflect the sun in the morning on the way to work.  I love shiny hair. I love shiny chapstick and shiny nails. Shiny Shiny. It's just better.

4. Unplanned conversations. I love those great little conversations that make a good day become a great one, like someone nice on the elevator or a sweet little lady at the Post Office. I love sweet people at Target, cute little girls handing out flyers with pink bows in their hair, and conversations with your husband that remind you why you married him.

5. I love 409. It makes EVERYTHING you need to clean easy easy easy to do. 

6. Cold weather. Well, possibly because I love coats, winter clothes, and hot coffee. But still, I love cold.

7. Music. 

8. Silence.

9. Pottery Barn Books.

10. Gas Prices
