An assortment of things...

Hello! First off, it's election day here in the U.S! I'm not 18, so I cannot vote - but I encourage all of you who are to go make your voice heard! Remember that we, as women, only gained the right to vote a mere 90 years ago! And although it is a right, is is also a privilege. Take advantage of the abilities we are lucky to have, and be knowledgeable about it, while you are at it!

And second... I am officially a licensed driver! I took the behind-the-wheel today and I passed! :) I was nervous and my belly hurt all day - but I remained confident in myself, and sang this song in my head throughout the day...hehe. :) Everything went great, though.

These photos are from last Friday! I wore this to the Big Band Dance. Sort of 40s themed - swing dancing, jazz; that sort of thing. This dress was another one of my finds at Thrift Town in the city. ;) Three dollars, I think? My favorite.

Hope you all are having a lovely week, so far!
Tell me something you are looking forward to that is coming up...! :)
