Maria Shriver has many reasons to rejoice and be thankful this week.
And on Sunday, two days after ringing-in her 65th birthday, Shriver spent some quality time in Montecito, California with daughter Christina Schwarzenegger, son Patrick Schwarzenegger and his girlfriend Abby Champion, and famed actor Rob Lowe.
Celebrate good times: Maria Shriver continued her celebration of the Biden-Harris Democratic ticket winning the 2020 presidential election with family in Montecito, California, which is about 83 miles north of Los Angeles
Shriver was spotted carrying two bags while on a shopping excursion, just east of the city of Santa Barbara, about 83 miles north from Los Angeles.
Showing her patriotic pride, she wore shoes that spelled out ‘vote’ along the top with fitted black pants and a matching top.
The Illinois native also donned a stylish red duster coat and had her long brown tresses pulled back off her face, with the exception of her bangs, which were pulled back off her face.

Safety first: The group all wore protective masks amid the still raging COVID-19 pandemic
The rest of the group gathered outside a restaurant at the shopping center while waiting for Shriver to rejoin them.
Lowe, 56, looked sporty in blue sweatpants, a blue hoodie and black sneakers.
Patrick Schwarzenegger, 27, looked casual-cool in black pants with a white t-shirt brown jacket and white sneakers, while his ladylove donned an all-black ensemble.
Comforting: Shriver shared words of wisdom in another Sunday Evening Reminder
By the early evening, Shriver shared another Sunday Evening Reminder where she asked people to think of the ‘new week coming’ and to ‘open your eyes to all of its possibilities and all of yours.’
She appeared to make a reference to the Democrats winning the White House, along with some other words of wisdom and comfort, in the caption.
‘This week, we all came face to face with what is. What will become depends on what we’re willing to give up in order to become who we can be. What you seek is seeking you. Don’t let your fears stand in the way of your hopes, and don’t let your prejudices stand in the way of what you know to be true. Head into this week with compassion, grace, and the ability to listen and learn. #sundayeveningreminder’
My birthday wish: The journalist referenced her 65th birthday in another newspaper-like post
Shriver also shared about her recent birthday on November 6, and this past year ‘that didn’t go to plan.’
That led to more comforting words of encouragement that included wishing for ‘you to discover what you can be.’
‘My hope is that you discover what you are seeking. I hope it doesn’t take you as long as it took me. You are so worth being loved, accepted, and seen,’ she added.

Her 773,000 Instagram fans and followers also got a healthy dose of praise and gratitude over President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-Elect Kamala Harris.
‘We talked about being hopeful, and I have to say, today fills me with a lot of hope,’ she wrote on the caption of a video she shared of her sit-down interview with Mr. Biden back in January 2018.
‘I can’t wait to see what the Biden-Harris Administration can accomplish, and I am ready to spread the faith! #movehumanityforward’
