looking for something?

Friday, November 2, 2018


Hello, hi, welcome to my Ted Talk. 
Just kidding, but I do want to talk about something a little more serious than what I'm wearing, or eating or what I'm listening to. Today I want to talk about voting. And elections. And the state of our country. I'm unabashedly a Democrat. I know this, you probably know this, and that's fine - it's my opinion and you are entitled to yours. But I want to use my platform to encourage as many of you as I possibly can to get out there and vote. In some states early voting has already ended, others it's still going on. But you definitely need to vote on November 6th if you haven't already. Elections are the way we can voice our opinions. Yes, we can protest, we can discuss and argue but elections are the way we actually see the changes we want made in action. And as a woman, this election season is even more important. It's time to show politicians we will not be silenced, we will not just stand down about Kavanaugh or the things our current president says. 
And if you really think about it, everyone in this country has had to fight for the right to vote. Whether you were a white man (the American Revolution), a white woman (the hunger strikes), or a person of color (so many instances, it's horrifying to imagine) - your ancestors fought for your right to vote. So don't think it isn't important and that your voice doesn't matter and that you don't need to do it. Voting isn't a choice, it's a duty. It's your right to make decisions about our country. Please, do not let this opportunity pass you up.
I'll get off my soapbox now, hope you have a great weekend rocking that "I Voted" sticker, it truly is the best accessory - xoxo darling, Hayden.
