happy election day!

HAPPY ELECTION DAY! 
i hope today we can keep our commonalities rather than our differences at the forefront of our minds. and i hope we can cheer on our choice candidates and express dissent with grace & generosity toward one another. also, we should all eat lots of pizza and color in maps and celebrate the abatement of contentious political tv ads-- because that's universally fun, right?

  1. I used to love coloring in the maps as a child, why should I stop as an adult!

  4. I feel like this election has been so crazy. Over here in the UK it has been on every news channel. I was in America this time when Obama got elected and I can't remember it being half as crazy. Maybe because I was in Utah... Love Elle xo

  6. Happy election day to you Americans! It's been so interesting seeing how vocal everyone has been on social media about the election - Canadians at election time, not so much.

  9. I love that you colored in a map while watching the elections - wish I thought of doing that as well! I love your mindset when it comes to the election though. Too many people are getting in arguments and bashing others, focusing on the differences.
