Today, I voted for the first time. I know, I know. I have been of legal voting age for three elections, but the first time I was out of the country (no excuse, but I really didn't care back then). Then last election, I registered to vote, and they sent me a voter registration card...three days after the election (super helpful). So this time around, I was excited to exercise my right. It seriously made my whole day better. I felt so powerful.
Anyway, did anyone else feel the need to dress patriotically? The red, white, and blue outfit can come off almost cartoonish at times (I went through several outfit drafts) but navy with red can actually be quite nice. I wasn't sure if our lines would look anything like Florida's so I chose my most comfortable flats and we went to vote and get hot dogs. Very AMERICAN RIGHT?
Now, we wait. I'm making a pizza and planning to drink from our "Four More Beers" pint glasses this evening while BB nervously checks every news outlet and overdoses on election coverage. I'm proud of all of you who voted, now that I understand how important it is.
