If all has gone as planned, I am now home after our epic anniversary trip to Aix-en-Provence, Israel, and Amsterdam, and I’m sleeping in my own comfy bed, adjusting to my new time zone. I love traveling, but sometimes I think I love returning home even more. Do you ever feel that way?
See ya on the Net,

Women’s Suffrage Printable(** for Premium Members only)
Women’s national suffrage was fought for for more than fifty years, until the Nineteenth Amendment become national law on August 26, 1920. The idea began to gather steam at the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention in New York, and then again two years later at the National Women’s Rights Convention in Massachusetts. In 1869, the first two national suffrage organizations were established. One led by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the other by Lucy Stone. Years later, in 1890, the two competing organizations merged and became the National American Woman Suffrage Association, under Anthony’s leadership.
