Two Things

1. Riding your mountain bike to work in the snow while wearing all your ski clothes and running into friends who think you are ridiculous is an awesome/terrible idea. It was kind of scary, but luckily most of my ride is on a bike path. And in hindsight, one of the most fun things I've done lately. Looking forward to the ride home! There are a good six inches of powder out there. And our friends did have a camera.. so this nonsense was documented!

2. I am so hopeful, optimistic, nervous, excited, a million other adjectives, about the transition of power that just took place. I love the open displays of affection for his wife and daughters, I love his amazing speeches, and I have my fingers crossed like crazy for him. I organized a viewing of the inauguration in a conference room and everyone spontaneously started clapping and cheering. The views of the Mall all filled with hopeful faces was truly touching.

Happy Tuesday, it's been a great one so far!
