Hi gang! Wow! What a week! I feel like I am breathing a big sigh of relief and happiness today. I still can’t fully believe it. So many years of so much stress and tension that it is almost hard to accept the fact that we will have a new president. I know this has been an especially challenging time for so many members of our LGBTQ community, people of color, and other diverse backgrounds, and I couldn’t be more thrilled that we are hopefully moving on to a period of more inclusiveness and acceptance and rights for all.
I am also thrilled beyond belief that we will have our first female vice president, and our first VP of color. It seems amazing we are still having these firsts here in 2020, but worthy of celebration nonetheless. When I think of those little girls who are seeing themselves out there and realizing their futures are bright and wide, it gives me hope. (And I will also admit to a thrill that our new Second Gentlemen is Jewish, something else that has never happened at this level of politics).
Just a secret here between us — we are out of town this weekend at the beach so I originally wrote this post on Thursday night so that it would run while I was gone. I talked about the stressful week and how hard it was to wait for such an important vote. So I will thrilled this morning when I realized I could come back and change my post today to say yes, we did it!
Saturday I sat on the beach on a gorgeous day with blue skies, warm temperatures, and joy in my heart! I hope you all are enjoying yourselves as well!
