Inauguration 2013: #forward

Hello again!  It's been another eventful week in our crazy life...and boy what a week it's been, especially living in D.C...but first things first :)  As I may have mentioned, since this semester is a bit more low key than previous ones, I've joined a Kickball league that plays (indoor right now) every Thursday night.  It's really fun and a bunch of my friends are on the team, so it makes for a fun time :)  This week was our first game of the season and we played a team that was mostly med students from Howard...good times!

The majority of the rest of the week was fairly low key, as I was recovering from a cold...but never fear, I'm all recovered and got better just in time :)

Maggie loves any excuse to snuggle with her daddy!

Dinner at Cafe Brandon: Chicken, Spinach & Tomato Pasta w/ Wine :)

Matt & Em at 90's Night...SO fun but it made me feel old! 
 Luckily for me, we had an extended weekend in honor of MLK Day and the Inauguration...and living in DC made it even more exciting :)  We ended up getting tickets to the Inauguration and went down to the mall to soak it all in in person!  Now, while some people may be of varying political ideologies, one thing I think we can all agree on is the amazing process by which we peacefully transition (or reaffirm, in this case!) power.  Being on the mall and seeing former Presidents Clinton and Carter, our Senators and Congressman, and other distinguished public servants was a wonderful experience...not to mention Beyonce's performance :)

Congratulations, Mr. President!

Emily, Me, Emily, Veronica, & Sarah all bundled up!

A view of our Nation's Capitol...a miraculous sight!

Thanks to our Armed Forces for keeping us safe!
All in all, living in D.C. (especially on days like today) reminds me how much I want to run for public office one day...and until the next time, may God bless you and may God continue to bless to United States of America!!!
