A Day to Remember

Yesterday truly was a day to remember. We woke up to a fresh blanket of snow. It was the first of the season and probably will be the last. So, Mason and I were sure to enjoy it. I bundled up my little Eskimo and we were off. We didn't get as much as I had hoped for. But even though it wasn't enough to make Frosty; there was plenty there for mini snow fights and slipping and sliding. After a while of sliding, Mason's little bottom was ready to come inside and warm up. He was so cold that he was actually telling me it was time to come in. That doesn't happen too often. It was his first time playing in the snow; so, for me, it was truly a memorable moment.

But, the memorable moments didn't end there.

Yesterday was also a fresh new start for all Americans and those privileged enough to live in the GREAT U.S. of A! It was a day full of hope for a better more prosperous future. The United States of America has a new President, Barack Obama. There have been 43 Presidents before him. Some were more great than others, but never has there been one to accomplish what he has accomplished, uniting our country like never before. As I watched the news coverage of his inauguration, it was hard to believe that not long ago there was so much hatred simply based on the color of your skin. It's been a long time coming and the time is now here. To see, yesterday, people of all races, all ages, and all classes join together in celebration of how far we have come. It was truly a day to remember.
