Wedding Day!

Congrats to Richelle and Don! Today is there wedding day!  YAHOOO!!

Happy Wedding Day!

I have just returned from Israel on assignment with Gov. Mike Huckabee again this year.  It was interesting being there during all the protest.  We never say any evidence of the protest while we where in country, we felt very safe.  Maybe safer than here in Chicago!

I will be posting photos from the trip over the course of the next week or so – some from Jerusalem, some with the governor, and some from around the country.  Enjoy.

New York Times Assignment

Check out Chris’ latest assignment for the New York Times.  And if anyone is interested, the condo was really beautiful, big and had a HUGE closet.  You just don’t get those here in Chicago.
