We had a little bit of snow before the new year, and a little bit more after.

1.5″ that second time.

There’s a snowflake in the weather ap for Friday. This is Very Different from shorts all year round.

Merry Christmas!

Tyler has one too.

I hope everyone’s Christmas was as merry, quiet, and low key as ours (unless you like excitement, then I hope the opposite for you). We had no company and traveled no where, so we stayed in pajamas all day and ate breakfast for all three meals: breakfast, brunch, and…wait for it…Yule Brinner!

I crack myself up. 😀

Next Step

OK. So the next step is to be this motivated in the down ballot races so we never get another Roy Moore. R or D, we need to fill our seats with candidates that favor of basic human decency.

PS Thank you to everyone who made me a part of the 2% write-in vote. Maybe I’ll run for city council in a year or two when Ellie is out of elementary school.

Official Announcement

This is the official announcement of my write-in campaign for Alabama’s Senate Seat.

Write me in! I got 8 votes against Jo Bonner one of those times he was running unopposed.

Y’all, I got an A in civics, memorized the Bill of Rights in 6th grade, have a general understanding of the Constitution, and can pass a criminal background check. So I’m already way more qualified than Roy Moore and much more interested in funding education.

I’m also registered as an Independent*. So no worries about that pesky ‘D’ by my name, I haven’t got one!

On December 12, Choose Kindness. Write in Emily Ivey for Senate.

*I’ve been thinking about it and it’s possible I’m just not registered with either state-recognised party. I registered to vote in Alabama when we moved here 15ish years ago and that’s a long time to remember if you got to check the box you wanted. Either way, I don’t have a ‘D’ so no worries.

I’m Emily Ivey and I approved this message.
