Stories from the heart. Books that feel like home.

Even during this year of social distancing, there is always too much to do around the holidays. So I’m just popping in to give you a quick virtual hug, and send wishes for a happy and blessed Thanksgiving. Wherever you are, whoever you are, and whether or not this is a holiday you celebrate: may you have a day full of love and wonder. ❤️

Well, my friends, here we are, on the cusp of another presidential election. (Is it just me, or are these things getting more and more contentious? Nah, probably just my imagination.) Anyway, it won’t be long before we know which candidate will lead this country through the next four years. And whatever the outcome of the election, we are all in this together. So it’s a good time to exercise the timeless wisdom of the great philosophers, Bill and Ted.

In September, my hubby took me to see the new Bill and Ted movie, Bill and Ted Face the Music. It was delightful. I had almost forgotten how charming and life-affirming the series is (not to mention silly beyond belief). And most of those wonderful qualities are due to Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, the writers of the 1989 film Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. (Technically, I should credit them with the quote, but it’s more fun to just credit Bill and Ted.)

Yes, I know that the election is serious, and it should be taken seriously. But there’s only so much seriousness one can take, right? So let’s remember to have a little fun. And regardless of who wins, let’s be excellent to each other. And party on, dudes! ❤️
