The Inauguration

22 Jan

Like a lot of other people I watched President Obama’s inauguration yesterday. I had never seen so much diversity in an inaugural celebration and I liked seeing that. I enjoyed listening to the President’s speech and this particularly stood out to me, “For our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts. Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.” I found myself  cheering alone in my living room when he said that.

Now to the more frivolous, I  thought Michelle Obama looked fantastic and I know everyone keeps talking about this, but her new hairstyle really flatters her. I simply love it and think she looks remarkably chic! Did you see the inauguration? What did you think?
