Back from the ball

I started the day at my friends Kate's house and we watched the inauguration. Then we went out for a celebratory lunch. We toasted the new president with strawberry daiquiris and had a great lunch.

Then this evening went to the ball, well it wasn't really a ball more of a celebration. There were drinks, I had red wine and some finger foods and then we watched the inauguration again. I wore my blue velvet dress and my emerald earrings to celebrate. It was a fun time with friends sharing a wonderful moment.

and I even got to meet the President. Don't we look great together. We had a fun time but wished it had been a true ball with dancing and all. It was a great way to celebrate a momentous day.
