Happy Election Day, y’all!! It is so hard to believe it is already here. Can you believe the first nominee announced their intention 20 months ago….just a fun fact that I have been thinking about all day. 20 months. Where was I then? I had just met an amazing group of Houston bloggers, just starting diving into my specialty at work, this blog was only a year old, I starting spin classes and I was living in a different apartment. I have grown so much as a person and this blog has evolved tremendously since then.

Full disclosure, I am writing this post while watching the election coverage and reminiscing on this journey we took to get to today. So many thoughts are bouncing around my head – How amazing is it that we have the ability to vote for the leader of our country? How lucky are we to be alive during this historic election (Hamilton reference, anyone?)? Although this election cycle has been extremely turbulent and hard to watch at times, I think it has provided the opportunity to have the difficult conversations we need to have. I know I haven’t been vocal about my political views – it has been intentional. And I am even skeptical about writing this much about it in this post. I tend to keep my beliefs (whether religious, political, moral) close to the vest (maybe too much if I’m being completely honest), but I feel compelled to say that I firmly believe that no matter who wins tonight and who loses, God will be with us as we embark on these next 4 years and that we will still be waking up in an amazing country that allowed each of us the opportunity to voice our opinions. I probably won’t be staying up super late to find out the results of the election because I am a old lady and in bed by like 10PM every night (and this time change doesn’t help the non-night owl situation), but I know that when I wake up in the morning, history will be changed forever and we will begin a new chapter with 4+ years of story left to be told….

Back to the originally intended post….this past weekend was filled with so many wonderful times. I was able to get together with multiple friends that I have not seen in forever. There wasn’t any special event happening, it was just a normal low-key weekend where I had the opportunity to have coffee, go to spin, grab drinks and meals with fabulous people who continue to inspire and encourage me to be my best self and they made my weekend. It was jammed packed, so I expected to be exhausted yesterday, but I was energized by all of the joy I had received in the days prior. A little over a year ago, I took a values survey which helped me to identify the areas of my life that mean the most to me. The people I surround myself with was one of my top categories and I am not surprised by it one bit. Have you ever taken a values survey? I would love to know the areas of your life that you value the most in the comments.

With the weather (finally) cooling down in Houston, I am starting to incorporate more of my fall items into my wardrobe. This sweater was an immediate must have when I laid eyes on it at Anthropologie (p.s. it’s 30% off right now). I knew it would go great with a pair of jeans and boots, but for brunching I decided to pair it with my Boutique+ skirt from the spring (see the original post here). I love the contrast of the chunky, cozy, cable-knit texture against the delicate, flowy, pale pink, pleated skirt. To add a bit of glam for brunch, I added my glitter Kate Spade Keds which are some of the most adorable and comfortable shoes I own. (And are perfect for keeping my toes warm as the temperature drops).

I hope the rest of your week continues to be amazing!! Here’s to turning in early and finding out the results in the morning…Sending love to all of you!

      Thank you, Sam! I’m sorry to hear it is so cold there, already. That is one of the benefits of living in Houston – it never really gets super cold.
