Michelle Obama: A First Lady of Style and Substance

Words can not express how proud I am to be an American at this moment, or how much I admire our country's first couple.

What I do want to share are these words that Mrs. Obama inscribed on the leather journal she gave to Mrs. Bush on the steps of the Capital:

"There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. Yet that will be the beginning."

"Classy" is all I can think to say. If I were the first lady, of course one of my illustrations would be de riguer~. n'est pas?
One can dream, non?
