We had a really hard time processing the election. To be honest, we didn't really see the result coming and as it will have significant, and in all likelihood negative, impacts on our professional, and possibly personal lives, we've been a little shell-shocked since.
And that's why, while I am always grateful for the service of our men and women of the armed forces, I was particularly grateful for Veteran's Day this year occurring three days after the election, and allowing us a break from work and the world. Allen and I took the kids and Owen's friend Adam to Great Falls where we met Brad, Mia and Ben. It was a beautiful fall day, and we spent it climbing with friends, communing with nature, and hoping that everything will turn out ok.
