Good morning from before dawn,
I, like so many Americans, am awake early to watch the momentous events in Washington D.C. this morning. I have several friends in D.C. taking part in various events and I don't quite know what I'll do if I see one of them on television. lol.
This evening, after a long day and numerous balls, the Obama's will head home. To this historic home. To our nation's home. To their *new* home for the next four years.
I had the honour of visiting the White House whilst I was vacationing in D.C. during a summer break from college. It was truly a breathtaking experience. After seeing photos of the space throughout my life, it was staggering to be standing in the East Room, or the Green Room, and feel the history of our nation wrapping around you.
The images above are from the March 2008 issue of Architectural Digest that featured the interiors of the 'public' rooms of the White House. Each presidential family leaves a mark on our nation history, and as well, will leave a mark on our nation's home.
I sit here quietly in the dark, excited to see the future of our nation begin to unfold.
