I just wanted everyone to see how cute our tray of Plain Janes looked yesterday!
I had SO hoped to have toothpicks with photos of McCain, Palin, Obama, and Biden on them, but alas, I don't have nearly that much free time...
This month's Real Simple question of its readers was "What are your hopes for this country?"
These are some of my favorite answers:
"I want the young people of America to realize and understand the sacrifices their grandparents and forebears made so that they could have the freedom to speak, write, and worship as they choose." -Laura Youlios, California
"Mindfulness. Be mindful of the impact everyday activities have on others, the earth, and ourselves. Even the smallest things have the capacity for a big impact. Be mindful of yourself, your surroundings, and your audience before taking action." -Kelly Megill, Pennsylvania
"That people will slow down to talk to each other face to face and not rely so much on virtual communication." -Kanesha Baynard, Colorado
