Meeting the Governor!

Tom and I have a great admiration for our state's governor, Martin O'Malley. Governor O'Malley has supported education, equality, small and large businesses, and much more. Recently his office  launched the State's First Online Business Registration System.    
He supports alternative energy, something much needed in all states. He recently introduced the Maryland Offshore Wind Energy Act of 2013.     Of course, he was a leading force in getting marriage equality passed here in Maryland.

  During the holidays, the Governor and his wife Katie open their home for a meet and greet and a tour of the mansion. They have live music and great cookies and apple cider, and the mansion is beautifully decorated. Everyone has a chance to get a photo with the Governor and Katie, too -as we did. Of course, we both find the Governor incredibly handsome, and Katie is equally as beautiful, so we opted for a picture. 

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
