Witnessing history.


It is an amazing day to be an American. It doesn't matter who you voted for, it's an amazing day. I for one, look forward to the changes the future holds and feel blessed to be an American.

Today is one of those days, were I have a lot to say, yet really nothing at all.
I have had a smile on my face all day, I don't know if it was the beautiful Michigan sunshine or the inauguration, but it has been a very good day. I started creating some valentines tags and things for my etsy (I'll post picks when I get them listed). I spent most of the morning up to my elbows in ink and paper and loved every minute of it. The only downer of the day was that Rebecca now has an ear infection, and I had to miss Alyssa performing with the high school cheerleaders at the basketball game tonight.

It was an amazing day wasn't it! I am so exciting to see what is in store for our country! My daughter officially turned 3 1/2 today and she was so exited about it for the last few weeks she's been telling everyone that she will be 3 1/2 when Barack Obama is President. She even watched him being sworn in this morning with me and was amazed with all the people there. She said they looked like ants-LOL!
