GO VOTE !!!!

Bryan and I left our house and got to the polls to vote at 7:15 this morning and this was the line outside. And then it weaved around other rooms inside the building. It was awesome to see!!

If you look closely in the next picture, Bryan is the blur right before the soldier toward the back of the line (I don't think you can really see him). I was honored to stand by a soldier on the day we voted! I almost asked to take his picture.I am touched each time I get to vote. Bryan teased me and kept saying "Are you going to squirt, Julie. Come on squirt!" It is very moving for me and especially at this election as we feel this is a turning point in our country's history, no matter what candidate you vote for. Bryan said over breakfast this morning the next 20 years could be the most active in our history as a country. Please vote today!!


I have a ton of errands to run this evening and Bryan kept asking me in a disgusting way if I was going to have election coverage on non stop when I got home. He doesn't like the slant the media sometimes puts on its reporting. So, I've decided after my errands, I'm going to the YMCA to hit the treadmill and if I have to, I guess I will walk for 1.5 hours so I can see some coverage!!


Our church had a prayer meeting last night for our country and this election. Afterwards Bryan and I ran to get a bite to eat and this little guy joined us!! Bryan loves Jesse (I saw Bryan give Jesse a kiss) and Jesse seems so comfortable in Bryan's arms!!

There was quite a line when I went to vote this morning as well, but it moved faster than I thought it would!

Kristen called me this morning and she waited in line for an hour and a half to vote. It is good to see so many out there exercising our right to vote! I always am moved by almost anything patriotic.

My husband and I always vote at the end of the day together when we both get off work. It's just something we've always done. I will definitely be voting though.

Sweet picture of Bryan with Jesse.

I too am a sucker for the media during election years. I can't seem to pull myself away!!! I just may stay up late into the night if it boils down to that! LOL

Love your new fridge! Very nice!!

I've already started watching the coverage and I guess it will be a long night! This election year has been a very emotional one for me, too.

I was so proud, Andrew, Kyle, and Tiffiany voted in their first presidential election. Yeah for voting. Ashley is having surgery on her hip mon. morning at Childrens' Hosp. Please pray for a good outcome. Between her history, and her asthma, I am battling fear, and I need to have peace and strength to give it to her.

I know what you mean. I got kind of misty when Derek was on his way to vote and I knew he was in his flight suit. It made me proud!

I had to turn the tv off at 9:30 pm on election night and read my Bible. Our Pastor gave our church scriptures to read for the next 21 days. The Lord just reminded me in the surrounding verses about His peace! What an awesome God! Hope you are doing well! Have a blessed weekend!
