Today I got to vote in a presidential election for the very first time. I had no idea that I would ever be so thankful to women I don't even know that fought long and hard nearly 100 years ago for this privilege. I super did not take it lightly, which is why I did my research this year (for the first time ever I cared about politics!). I started realizing that, hey, the president sort of does have a lot to do with how I live my life. My college career could be stopped in its tracks if the 'wrong' person gets into that office. My best friend could be denied marriage to the person he loves. I could have zero control over whether or not I can obtain birth control, even as a married woman (and THAT thought really scares me). So I did my research, I thought long and hard, prayed about it, thought some more, and made a decision today that not only reflected my personal beliefs, but what is right for our country. I am thankful today that I am able to voice my opinion, and vote for the things that I believe in.
I thought that in honor of election season finally ending, I would post some of my favorite (perfectly Instagram sized) graphics from Obama's campaign (I was going to post some from Romney/Ryan as well... but, I can't lie... their graphic designers just didn't get the job done this go around. Maybe next time!).
Enjoy your Tuesday!
And make sure to vote, if you can slash haven't already!
