Happy Tiny Tuesday, friends! I typically reserve this space to blog about my littles and matters of motherhood, but given that it's election day today, I thought I would pivot a bit. I am not here to share my political opinion or to tell you how to vote. Instead, I want to use today to just encourage you and remind you what makes this country great!
One of the greatest things about our country is that we get to vote and we are encouraged to have different opinions and stand up for what we believe in. How incredible, right? But one of the main things that makes our country great is that despite our differences, we all desire to unite for the greater good of our families and our countries. So, below I have shared some inspiring quotes to bring a smile to your face today and a bit of encouragement.
Now, get out and vote! 😉
