Election Cookie Bake-Off: My Favorite Recipes


-Inviting people over to share stories and watch Suffragette, with Meryl Streep & Carey Mulligan. See the trailer HERE(Thanks for the idea, Kami.)

-Wearing ALL WHITE in honor of the women who marched for the right to vote.

-Having a Cookie Bake-Off in honor of Hillary Clinton who said: “You know, I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession.” I’m so glad we all have the potential to do what we were meant to do.

-Listening (on repeat) to “Seriously” by Leslie Odom, Jr. & Sara Bareilles. Because this music, his voice, and her lyrics are nothing short of riveting.

    Hi Danny and Mara,
    I have been reading your blog for a few months now and have absolutely loved it. I currently just started dating someone who is wonderful. He is so kind, good and has lots of things that I admire in someone but I am having terrible anxiety and fear about the relationship. I wonder if I really like him or if I'm just faking it. Would he be good for me? Would I be good for him? How do you navigate this beginning part of relationships in a way that helps you get to know them and really focus on them instead of succumbing to the anxiety. What are some things I can do or focus on that might help me with this relationship? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Oh and also, did you two have problems with each other when you started dating? Did you ever get annoyed with each other? Were there ever dull conversations or days that you just felt okay with each other? Sometimes I think people don't talk about that as much so I have such high expectations for a perfect relationship. Does that make sense?

    I am so hoping you'll have a post-election post soon. Feeling despondent and need some balm for the soul!
