Laugh if you want, but I totally took pictures of the TV on Election Night of Obama giving his acceptance speech in Chicago. It was a historic occasion, the U.S. having elected its first black president, and I imagined I was there in the audience snapping pictures instead of watching from the comfort of my couch in Connecticut.
I liked how the family coordinated their clothes in red and black that night. I thought Michelle's dress was a little weird, but Sasha and Malia's dresses were perfect!
From everything I've seen, he looks like he's a wonderful father to his girls. That is a good indication of a man's character.

I love how close these two seem. I think they set a good example of a unified marriage for the country and for the world. (I hope the super-stressful job of being President doesn't put too much strain on their relationship in the years to come.)
And so today begins the Obama years. I hope and pray that they will be good ones. Now possibly more than ever, we need them to be good ones.
