Get out there and vote, people!  It's November 6 and our day to directly impact the way our country is run. It's amazing to think that less than a century ago, women couldn't even vote.  We have come so far and are so lucky to live in a country that embraces a system of freedom and choice.  So no matter what your views, make sure you get out there and embrace your right!

Ok- off my soapbox.  My mom gave me her beloved american flag brooch and strand of baby freshwater pearls on the day I was sworn in to practice law in California.  Yeah- it was a bit emotional.  Since I vote via absentee ballot and don't get an "I voted!" sticker, I am definitely wearing this pin today to show that I voted in my own way! xo

Happy vote day!
