It’s been a truly historic week. No matter how you feel about Hillary Clinton, she’s one step closer to the presidency and that’s big, big deal. I know all of you who read this have already watched the big speeches that had us cheering and crying, so I haven’t included them here, though there’s plenty on the convention. And so much more.

Or, at least a lot of it, so you’ll want to get started.
Let’s begin with some gorgeous, gorgeous things. Now, I have terrible tattoos that I deeply regret, but these almost make me want to head on over to Crimea for a brand new one.
