Barack the Vote

Since I have been unable to campaign like I would have liked this election, I have done everything "for Obama."

These cookies?

They are for Obama

This manicure?

Also for Obama

In the past 24 hours, I have eaten Macaroni for Obama, spent quality time with my husband for Obama and run five miles while listening to the entire score of Les Mis (Do YOU Hear the People Sing? Because I sure do) for OBAMA.

Because living in a state as blue as Mass, we already knows how this story ends. But the big story? Well, that one is just beginning.

I am full of audacious hope today, full of the belief that change is afoot and when I cast my ballot, together with my family, all I could do was cry. To see their name (Obama Biden) and to mark it, it is official. The reign of evil is over. Eight years I have waited, four years to the day after I cried on my kitchen floor. We will win today. I feel it. I know it.

I would have waited hours, but today I only had to wait 45 minutes. And tonight, we will know.

Can I buy my wedding dress for Obama?? I'm in NJ now, but it was so difficult to watch GA, the state where I voted, turn red. I find solace in the fact that at least I contributed to the popular vote.
