Headed back to where I love-


{Nie with Mr. and Mrs. Romney}

It's Tuesday. Mr. Nielson and I are headed back to Utah after a fabulous few days in Las Vegas working with the Romney campaign. I hate to say this, but I hate Las Vegas- I mean the strip. Its awful and ugly and yucky. Mr. Nielson and I walked downtown looking for a movie theater and were pushed and shoved down the smoky strip. I felt like I wanted to hide inside Mr. Nielson's jacket and be his baby.
The looks, the comments, and the snickers really hurt.
I felt targeted among all the laughter and jokes in my new skin.

It made me think about how much I love my little house near the mountains and my children outside swinging out back. I thought about my garden and all the weeds
my little fingers pulled out last week.
That is where my heart is, and that is where I feel loved and comfortable.
It will be nice to be home.

But I wont stop there! It's Mitt all the way!
And, check out this out too.
I was so honored when I saw this. I even cried.
Hey Glenn, remember when I met you?
{I looked slightly different, but I still met you}

Happy Tuesdee {as my Dad would say}
