Three Cheers for the Red, White and Blue...

SInce February is the month of love, I wanted to talk about some things that are important to me, that I may not share everyday. Anyone who knows me knows that I love my country. I am proud to be an Amerian, always have been. When I see that beautiful flag blowing in the breeze, my heart swells with pride. I don't think that there could be a more beautiful flag in all the world than mine.
I grew up as the daughter of an retired Colonel in the US Air Force, and as such, I was always taught what it means to be a patriot. My heart beats true for none but our beautiful red, white and blue. Now that I am married to a Navy man, that same heart bleeds Navy blue and gold...
Today, I chose to talk about how I love my country becuase it is Super Tuesday, the day that many states throughout our wonderful country will cast their ballots for our next president. It truly feels as if we are on the verge of something historic. I love feeling as if I am riding the winds of change, especially when they are accompanied with such a sense of hope and optimisim for the future of this country that I love so much.

I hope that if you live in a state that votes today that you are on your way out the door ( like I am!) to cast your ballot. After all, we take for granted what a third of our planet can only dream about. Don't be silent, ROCK THE VOTE!
