wow. what a week to be in the capital.
little did i know when i moved here, i would see the president and vice president, view the white house at christmas, stroll around the gardens of the first lady, and be surrounded by so much history.
i couldn't help myself by going to the parade on monday. i squeezed into a tiny spot so that i could catch a view of what felt like royalty.
i felt myself wrapped up in a crowd, chanting, "obama, obama"
something came over me- i felt truly like an american. and, i was joyful to be one.
had to get a photo of this one. missing good old wheaton.
