This is not a political post.  No election rant, no complaining.  This is about the friends who challenge you.

This is my wonderful friend who recently got married.  We were able to have a bridal photo session the night before she got married.  All the bridesmaids stayed in this beautiful Bed and Breakfast!  Isn't this just a fabulous room?  Perfect for a bridal photo.

Cubs Win! Cubs Win!! CUBS WIN!!

Cubs won the World Series 2016 last night in Cleveland!  Santa and I were here at the North Pole screaming at the TV and there may (or may not) have been tears of joy!  It was all like it was a dream!

In the picture Skittles first Cubs game!  I don't know how it was growing up a Cubs fan, because I grew up in Kentucky with my mom screaming for the Cincinnati Reds!  But we have grown OUR kids up to be Cubs fans . . . because Santa is from Chicago and because Santa's mom was even a bigger Cubs fan than he is.  So all these years of being Cubs fans only to be disappointed every year, I only know what it's like to be a fan now, but they have been Cubs fans their whole life!

When I met Santa I was not fully aware of how big of a fan his family was, but it didn't take long to figure it out.  I went to Wrigley field and sang in the 7th inning stretch with Harry Carey!  Ate Chicago dogs in the stands and watched the Cubs lose . . . like always!  But they were always fans and naturally, Kisses and Toby and myself got adopted into this Cubs club by marriage . . . and now Cubs are the World Series Champs!
