step #1. VOTE!
step #2. order swensons and stress eat while waiting for the polls to close
step #3. watch election coverage obsessively even though
nothing of consequence will be reported for hours still
step #4. distract yourself with the apple product of your choice
(you might need to remove your pants for step #4)
step #5. take an election night photo with wes for posterity
step #6. celebrate!
step #7. be incredibly grateful that you've been given the priviledge to live your life and raise your family in this beautiful place we call america. a place where the things you care about most; women's rights, the environment, marriage equality and the basic belief that food, housing, healthcare and education should be regarded as fundamental human rights have won out over big money and corporate greed no matter how impossible it seemed that mountain would be to climb. be proud that the values the people of this country hold dear have proven to be overwhelmingly those of freedom, love, compassion and respect for our fellow citizens.
step #8. cry a few tears, hug your husband and fall asleep knowing your children will inherit a much better world for this.
always forward. never back.
