On My Mind This Monday | Inauguration

It's Inauguration Day!

Being the lover of US History that I am, this day is kind of exciting to me.

I've watched every Inauguration since 1993.

I was in 5th grade.  Our teachers brought a little TV into the hallway.  We all poured out of our classrooms and took our seats on the tile floor to watch history being made.  With just a few short but poignant words, Bill Clinton was officially our President.

And every four years after that, I've watched the Inauguration, but always on TV.  Someday, I will be there in person.

I mean, it's on my bucket list so it's bound to happen, right?

How could you not want to experience this in person...?

So many people.  So much pomp & circumstance.  So much tradition to root us in history.  So much hope and positivity for the four years that lie ahead.  I'd love to be a part of that someday.

Have you ever attended a Presidential Inauguration?




  1. To answer your question: No, I can't say that I have... :-) I can imagine that it must be pretty special though if you're America. Enjoy xo

  2. it would be pretty amazing! there is something really, really awesome about watching history being made :) you'll be there one day, i am sure of it! XO Brynn

  3. i loved reading it all over twitter. such a great speech he gave

  4. I've never been a huge history fan, so I'm sorry to say that I don't really feel excited about seeing an inauguration any time soon. I hope you get to do that some day though!

  5. Oh I would love to go someday. I'm such a history buff too. Really wish I could have been there for Obama's first inauguration!
