yes we did!
I am beyond happy this morning. Over-the-moon, happy-dancing, singing-with-the-birds happy. I feel like it's the day after Christmas and I got everything I wished for. For the first time in a very long time, I'm enormously proud of this country. We've stepped up and done the work to make a change that will benefit the entire world. Hooray for us, US, U.S. We did a good thing in electing Obama. There's still a lot of work to do, but at least now we have a place to start from. Moving forward, you and me, us and them, we're all in it together. Come on. Let's go!
Today Rick and I will finish packing. We're off to explore a bigger world, to share who we are and what we have. It feels important to be doing this at this particular point in time. The world is changing, and we're helping. Feels good. Very good.
I forgot to mention that we had a terrific Election Night Party at Deborah & Thomas's house. I brought a big pot of Obama Beans (chili), and Obamaroni (mac & cheese from scratch). We also thought ahead and had champagne chilled... we knew we'd be celebrating!!! The cheesy-mac was a huge hit. The recipe is based on Patti LaBelle's recipe, but I think I added even more cheese than it called for. After all it was celebration food!

The voters who stood up and said YES!
You. All of you. I can't see you, but I know you're there.
