In no particular order, these are some of my favorite things:
- Quadrennial elections that show the world how messy democracy can be.
- Road wins / Underdog wins.
- Puddles pushed back with each rowing stroke.
- “I believe that we can win” – a great fan chant originated at the Naval Academy.
- Hoppy microbrew pints.
- People that state “why not” and gets things done.
- The comfort that we sleep well each night because violent men/women are standing over us.
- My own cooking :).
- Faith, family and friends.
- Simple things in life – even when those are hard.
