I VOTED 2012


It’s Election Day here in the US! I am feeling proud and thankful to be able to vote for someone I believe in. I am thankful for the women in history who fought for my right to vote as a woman. I am thankful for those who fought in our history’s wars so we could continue to enjoy the right to vote today (especially the World War II veterans, who always have a special place in my heart). I am thankful for the men and women who are still protecting our freedoms and the freedoms of others.

I am also feeling anxious, nervous and scared to see the election results unfold tonight during our Election Party. Naoto has already told me that I shouldn’t cry in front of the guests. I couldn’t make him any promises.

    I’ve been thinking about the history of women voting all week long. I’m ever so grateful for the opportunity to vote.

    Also- not to take away from the importance of your post, but is that a target scarf you’re wearing? If so, I just bought the same one but in yellow today 🙂
