I don't usually delve into the political realm, but it has been such an interesting time to be in America leading up to the election, and watching the way the primary system works in terms of deciding who will run etc.
Now I'm not mentioning any of this to be provocative and I don't really care what your political leanings are, but Josie and I are both huge Barack Obama supporters and the democratic party campaign has been fascinating to watch. It has been a pretty fierce battle between two great candidates... Hillary (go girl!) and Barack, but last night Obama made history by becoming the first black presidential nominee in the United States! He's young, he's gorgeous, and he makes a lot of sense. Not only that but his campaign has been filled with the most incredible posters! We're lucky enough to have scored one of the HOPE posters (thanks Cass!!) which will grace our walls for years to come in Oz and hopefully remind us of that feeling of a whole, hope filled country balancing on the threshold of something incredible. Here's hoping it actually spills over! I'm so excited!
This intermittent blog follows the random adventures of my family and me. We are a two mum family with our awesome three year old Marty Roo (formerly baby Tuesday) and our newest addition, Kenzie the Kelpie.
I love cooking and far too much of this blog is about food, traveling and eating. For me, cooking for people is how I tell them I love them.
I am a statistical geneticist, geek, gamer, inherently lazy, cheese addict and whisky drinker.
Right now we're working on settling back in to Tassie, holding on to memories and friends in Texas and getting into the rhythm of life. It is a fun ride and y'all are welcome to join us!
