I'm just getting back from assisting Sera at a loooovely wedding in Crozet and I'll blog those pictures in a week or so but for now I thought I'd share a little bit about what I've been up to lately!
On Thursday I got to do something pretty exciting for a conservative girl like me. I got to go see Mitt Romney in a small little town near my house! I'm not one of those people who obsesses over politics, though. I do think it's incredibly important to know your facts and research both people running in the election -- Romney and Obama, in this case -- but I also wouldn't be the one to get in an argument over what they believe and whose plan is better. I just know my family is conservative and loves stuff like this! So we decided to go and let me just say that leaving at 3:30 (to go 15 minutes away) when the rally started at 6 was not the best plan. We got to Fishersville and the traffic was backed up for miles. We ended up parking in a church and walking two miles to the field where everything was being held. And I wore heels. And my feet hurt. And I almost took off my boots and walked in rocks. But I didn't. And I survived. And I stood for five hours through the whole rally. And it was totally worth it! Haha.
I got to hear Trace Adkins who is fabulous live, by the way, and then heard lots of wonderful republican speakers before Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney came on!!!! I had pushed myself to the very front so I could get decent pictures and even though I think everyone who had been standing there three hours more than me hated me, it's okay because I took my pictures and was a happy girl. :)
Then yesterday I went down to Chesapeake for a funeral service and got to see my brother in Newport News after it was over! I hadn't seem him in a while so it was great to go down and have him give us a new tour of Christopher Newport University since there have been so many changes since he moved in four years ago! I will admit that campus is absolutely beautiful! So here are some pictures from the past few days!
My brother took this wonderful picture! I love it!
