We decided a couple weeks ago that we wouldn’t watch election returns tonight (just the mention of the shifty NYT election needle gives me flashbacks!). By this point we’ve supported the campaigns and issues we believe in and voted. Instead, we made pizza together with our little family, talked about our days, and had brownies. Tomorrow I’ll get a copy of the paper on my way home from my workout to read the results in print. However the elections turn out these things remain true: there is more work to be done and most people are good people. . There’s a wonderful op-ed in the NYT from a few weeks ago titled “We are not the resistance” that I’ve thought of often lately when I feel discouraged by current events. It’s worth a break from maps and swinging needles if you haven’t read it and I’ll link to it in my profile.
Going through the last two months of art work and rediscovered this gem. Because nothing says I love you like a plane on fire. Especially for your dad who doesn’t love to fly.😭
An armful of fresh library books on a Friday is one of my favorite things! . In case you missed it, two new blog posts this week: November goals and a Trader Joe’s halloween costume how-to (to bookmark for next year!).🗓🛒🎃 . Chris got home early 🙌🏼 so we are off to pick up Dash from school and have a family hang out at the park — happy weekend!
Happy (belated) Halloween from Team Wharton! 🦄❤️🇺🇸 The Switch Witch visited last night and swapped all the boys’ candy for new Legos and pajamas and thankfully everyone was excited about that! 🧙🏼♀️🎃✨ #teamwhartonholidays #teamwhartonfall
Ladd Halloween party 2018! My costume inspiration: Dress for the job you want to have. 🌺🛒 . Technically in a Hawaiian shirt Chris should be “captain” and not crew member but I guess he was demoted 😜. And how perfect is @ladderica!
A portrait of things I never do: drink La Croix and off to spend an evening phone banking for the Arizona Democrats. La Croix to boost my spirits through what I am sure will be plenty of hang ups. But also I was told there would be wine 😜
