5 on Friday: The Obamas
The country has changed dramatically in 8 years. Far more prolific writers than myself have said many things on the topic of the Obamas, but here’s 5 small tidbits from me on this day.
1 As a lover of words and books, I am captivated by how fellow book lover President Obama talks about the topic. Here’s the list of all the books he has recommended over the years. I’m happy that a few I’ve read are on there, and a lot are already on my to-read list too.
2 Some of the shots of President Obama with kids are some of my favorite images from his presidency, a bunch of which are here. My favorite is this one!
3 Michelle Obama with Ellen at CVS is way too funny, especially when she discovers the boxed wine. Watch it!
4 Fashion history is a big interest of mine, and Michelle Obama set the bar high. Here’s an article on why the clothes she wore mattered and a slideshow of 50 of her most memorable outfits. I’d love that turquoise sheath dress she wore for the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
5 The Obamas seem like incredibly interesting, down-to-earth people and both of them would make the guest list for my dream dinner party (which is very much a dream considering my kitchen abilities).
As our world changes today in a big way,
I’m keeping hope in my heart for the future.
