A New Day

"I woke up this morning feeling brand new
'cause the dreams I've been dreaming
have finally come true.
It's a New Day"
-will.i.am
I wasn't going to post anything today, but really, how could I let a day like today go by without talking about it? The energy in the air was unbelievable. Everyone's talking about it, feeling it, sharing it, living it, loving it. Yes, it's historical, but it's also beautiful for so many reasons. For the first time in so freaking long, I feel like I can trust the government a bit, have faith in the people of this country, and have faith that maybe, just maybe we can work it out. I've loved Obama for so long and I feel so proud and grateful to have someone who believes so strongly in so many of the things I find so very important running the country in which I am living and raising a child. Plus, he's kinda hot in that really super smart, kinda nerdy, but still kinda edgy-you-know-he-gets-it kind of way.
So, enough of the sappy stuff. I'm not going to go on and on about how I held my daughter on my lap as we watched him take the oath, get teary, and squeezed her tighter. Instead, I'll just share with you a few of my thoughts thru pictures....
Here's what Little Bird looked like today. One day she will tell people that she was just 4 on the day Obama became president but that her liberal mommy and hippie grandma made a huge deal of it.
YES
WE
CAN
Ok, so do you think it's true what they say about the size of a man's shoes/feet?? If so, compare among yourselves....
This was it. The big moment. No sarcastic comment here. Just pride.
Did Aretha Franklin sing?? I couldn't concentrate on anything except that thing on her head. WTF is that?
Sasha, I get it. I felt the same way when that reverend spoke.
HA! {evil giggle} Biden strolls in, Cheney rolls out. Man, I'll miss that snarl.
Seeing off W and his creepy stepford wife. Later, bitches... and stay out!!
All in all, a great day! Plus, I got to make my own Obamaicon!
