*Favorite Moment: Looking around the restaurant on Thursday evening, seeing my Thomas family gathered together, eating, and laughing, and talking. Together again.
*Something to Watch: Dubstep Violin by Lindsay Stirling
*Inspiring Pin Board: Simply Lovely by Shayla LaFreniere
*New Hero: Last weekend we went to Iowa to visit the capital building and the Herbert Hoover presidential birthplace and library. Till now the most I knew about Hoover was that he was reviled and often blamed for the Great Depression. I never knew what a remarkable humanitarian, excellent husband, passionate patriot, and brilliant man he was. Discovering him was a real joy.
