History Has Been Made & I Couldn't be Happier!

I am in sitting in a hotel room in San Diego for a business meeting and I've been watching non-stop coverage of the election all night long and I must say that watching history unfold before my eyes has brought many tears to my eyes as well. I am so blessed to witness such an historical event and only wish I were back in Chicago at the Grant Park rally. While I'm not there in body, I am in spirit and can hardly contain myself in my hotel room.

When you think about how far we have come as a country, you start to realize how important of a role we each play in becoming one united country. This election we just elected an African-American President and also had a female running for vice-president. WOW - this is the type of story that I look forward to telling others about in years to come. This is truly what makes me so proud to be an American!

When I logged onto this blog tonight, I looked at the picture with David and I which was taken just one month ago at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago - where Barack Obama found out he was the President-elect. That was profound to me in so many ways and I hope none of us take this historical moment for granted, regardless of your political preference.

P.S. Don't worry I voted earlier because of this trip.

P.S.S. Dave please be sure to pick up a Chicago Tribune for me tomorrow morning!

YAY!!!!
GO OBAMA!!!!
Please, please make us proud!!!!
Melissa, it was an exciting night and one to look back on. Hopefully in years to come having a women or a minority on the ticket won't be such a big deal (meaning that it will be normal).... but it IS this year!!!!
