I voted, did you?

Today is Election Day, the end of the longest campaign season known to man and the beginning of a new era no matter who you voted for. This is truly a historical election, we will either have the first African American President or the first woman Vice President.

As I was standing in line this morning, I was thinking about the people all over this country who are going to the polls today. We are of all different backgrounds and places in our lives, but we have the power and the privilege to elect our leaders. All in all, the line wasn't horrible, only waited for about an hour and a half, but I think it's well worth my time. I remember when I turned 18, my parents told me that the first thing I had to do was register to vote so that's what I did. Every major election, you can find me standing in line somewhere waiting to vote. I told Mike this morning that I love to vote and I really do, I love that I have a voice in our political process. Granted, my candidate may not win, but I did my part.

So, tomorrow we'll have a new President, let's pray for him (whoever he is) that he will lead our country in the way it should go.

Peace and love y'all!

Yup, I did! My county has these weird forms, and I had to get the people to explain to me how to use them. You have to draw a line between an arrow and a box or something like that. Olivia voted at school today, too :) She's been talking politics with me all afternoon!

I love it too! My sweet hubby and I arrived before 7:00 and were numbers 48 and 49 in line. The weather,the overcast skies, the wind, the fall colors, and the people's upbeat mood all added to the special quality of the experience. I LOVED wearing my little "I Voted" sticker all day.
