20 January 2009

For once, I can think of no words to express the ecstatic joy & rush of excitement and nervousness as I watched the Inauguration of our new president, Barack Obama.


But can I just add that Michelle Obama (as uaual) looked absolutely STUNNING in her Isabel Toledo ensemble? And the little Obamas too – such beautiful little girls.

P.S. Thank you so much Miriam for passing me with this award, along with the sweetest description: “There’s not much I can say about her, she’s the one who dominates words, her way of writing is excelse and her posts get better every single day.”! You are the sweetest!


P.P.S. I would love someone to look at me like that 🙂

    They’re such a gorgeous, stylish family.

    He is amazing but she is a gem! Love Michelle, she is bringing style back to the White House.

    Yes, they r amazing! I luv how she pulled off that outfit. Most women would not think of putting together an outfit, with different shades of the SAME color. But she did it beautifully. I’d like to do that with pink!!!! 🙂

    sasha and malia are absolutely gorgeous little girls, one thing that i absolutely love about the obama’s is their strong sense of family and the love that president and his first lady show for each other

    Isabela: i know! i love how for them, family comes first :). so much attention is given to the two daughters even throughout the chaos of the campaign. as cheesy as it may sound, it really melts my heart seeing how strong family remains and how this indefinite love is felt. even on stage; barack & michelle have this connection of love i think most couples long for but have not yet found.

    love is a beautiful thing.

    I feel as though my hope in government has been reaffirmed (was it ever affirmed?). And I agree, seeing Barack and Michelle dance together at the inaugural ball was actually squeal-inducing. They’re like two teenagers in love… 🙂

  33. 21 January 2009 4:51 pm

    I adore the way he looks at her! Like she is all that matters. Truly beautiful and magical.

    She always looks so refined and elegant as well. A stunning couple to represent you all xx

  34. 21 January 2009 5:14 pm

    He is such an inspiring political figure, but aside from that he just seems like such a wonderful family man. Michelle is so lucky! They seem so in love. x

  35. 21 January 2009 5:18 pm

    I so wish him luck.
    They’re such a lovely family and I think we can see love between all.


  36. 21 January 2009 5:29 pm

    Hope he’ll succeed making the world a better place… I love Michelle Obama, Barrack is lucky to have her on his side.

  37. 21 January 2009 6:24 pm

    we used the same photos! =) hehe. great minds think alike! =)

    i haven’t watched the inauguration yet! i’ve been busy with school — but, i’ve got it recorded. i’ll probably watch it later this week. i know i am probably goign to cry. his speeches are always well thought out and inspiring.

    and the little girls looked so adorable!

  38. 21 January 2009 6:26 pm

    we are going to have new start…

  39. 21 January 2009 8:35 pm

    i’m anxious for the new presidency.. and i have to agree with your statement– I wish someone would look at me that adoringly! they seem to have a strong support system

  40. 21 January 2009 9:37 pm

    A well-deserved award for all the right reasons! Congrats :))

    It is truly beautiful to glimpse a man bursting with pride to be holding his wife in his arms, so sweet ❤

  41. 21 January 2009 9:56 pm

    michelle and the girls looked ultra fab.
    & one thing i love about michelle and barack is that they seem so in love! most presidential couples don’t looked that lovey dovey. and it’s not over the top affective m & b have…it’s normal affection! they’re normal, and that’s awesome.

  42. 21 January 2009 10:01 pm

    I am sorry, La C! I have not been on here in so long! And I have missed so much that has gone on here. Sigh. 😦

    But how nice, the first thing I see after not being here in so long is the joy you feel in all aspects about the new president and his wonderful family. I can feel you radiate! And it’s such a joy to read your posts about the new president. And I have to agree, I love what the the Obama daughters wore. Such sweet lovely things. 🙂

    What a fun, heartfelt post! ♥
    SEAH :p

  43. 22 January 2009 12:08 am

    i loved michelle’s toledo outfit. i know some people were bashing it but she looked radiant – like sunshine. and it did look much better on tv. and her wu dress…o.m.g. so ethereal, so simple, so gorgeous.

  44. 22 January 2009 12:58 am

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the white dress.

    Watching it last night, was so moving…so special!

  45. 22 January 2009 1:47 am

    The little girls were incredibly cute!

  46. 22 January 2009 2:10 am

    YAY FOR OBAMA!! Love the Obama family!! 🙂

  47. 22 January 2009 2:10 am

    I agree with all your thoughts, not just Americans but the whole world are anticipating the positive influence this man will have. Michelle Obama looks like the perfect First Lady. xx

  48. 22 January 2009 3:47 am

    The Obama family is so gorgeous, they all look effortlessly classy, especially Michelle Obama — I absolutely adore the Jason Wu dress.

  49. 22 January 2009 7:21 am
