"Home is wherever I’m with you."

-Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

I get to see almost every single one of my favorite people this week. If that isn’t enough to make my heart sing, I don’t know what is. 

Thursday night can’t come soon enough.

"We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine."

Dwight L. Moody

This quote epitomizes my Bumpa quite well. He would have been so honored by all of those who recognized how much he shined throughout his life (for all of the right reasons!)

"Senate Bill 1062 does not address a specific and present concern related to religious liberty in Arizona. I have not heard of one example in Arizona where a business owner’s religious liberty has been violated.

The bill is broadly worded and could result in unintended and negative consequences.

After weighing all of the arguments, I vetoed Senate Bill 1062 moments ago.

To the supporters of the legislation, I want you to know that I understand that long-held norms about marriage and family are being challenged as never before.

Our society is undergoing many dramatic changes. However, I sincerely believe that Senate Bill 1062 has the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve.

It could divide Arizona in ways we cannot even imagine and no one would ever want.

Religious liberty is a core American and Arizona value. So is non-discrimination."

Republican governor JAN BREWER, vetoing SB 1062, which would have allowed businesses to discriminate against customers based solely on sexual orientation.

She vetoed it, yes.  But read the language in her veto letter and take it for what it’s worth: Brewer and others like her continuing to put the “definition” of marriage before the issue of civil and human rights.

Thank heavens.

After a week of being sick with the flu, I’m having a really happy day today! It’s gorgeous outside in mid-February too. Biggest perk of my Floridian life. Also, my next trip to Massachusetts is in 11 days and I’m getting quite excited. Wheeeeee!

Ingrid + Storyman (aka the Guggenheim Grotto) = Heaven. 

I get to see them both live again on June 3rd with Shelley too! Third time seeing both of these favorites of mine in concert: twice together and once separately for each as well.
