America the Beautiful

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Today someone came into Jamba Juice and asked me if she gets a free smoothie for voting. She even pointed to her sticker so I would believe her. Although we weren't handing smoothies out for free, I really wanted to give one to her anyways. She did her part in voting for the president this wonderful country will have for the next 4 years. I don't know who she voted for, and she could have voted for the one I am voting against, but props to her for doing her part. This was the first year I was able to participate in the presidential election. How amazing it is to know that I had a say in voting for the next president to run this beautiful country for 4 years. Not only that, but women weren't even able to vote 92 years ago and I just did. Yep, I'm feeling pretty special today and pretty patriotic as well.
And now we anxiously await the outcome...

P.S. I walked through Target today and bought three pairs of Christmas socks.
After that I almost bought myself a mini Christmas tree. I stopped myself though.
I wish I didn't. Maybe I'll go back and buy it tomorrow.
Don't judge. 
Thanksgiving is boring anyways. 

All my love,
Aleigh Joy

  1. hahaha, a free jamba juice for voting? Um yes please (even if it is wishful thinking ;)! I feel the same way about voting, such a remarkable privilege and responsibility we have--definitely not one to be taken for granted!
