#ThrowbackThursday: The Obamas

potus1 Last week, the most powerful couple in America celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary. President Barack Obama and his First Lady Michelle, committed to spending the rest of their lives together at Trinity United Church in Chicago on October 3, 1992.

The dynamic duo met in 1989 when Michelle worked as his advisor at the law firm where Barack was working . POTUS proposed after three years of dating and promised Michelle not a life of riches, but an interesting life. After a life of politics and now living in the white house, I am sure he has made good on his promise! The couple now share two beautiful daughters, Malia (15) and Sasha (12).

RECAP: 2013 Potomac Flower Show

2013 Potomac Flower Show This past Sunday, March 17th 2013, I had the pleasure of attending the 2013 Potomac Flower Show held at the Potomac Flower Wholesale HQ in Silver Spring, MD. From the vendors, design competition, and amazing seminar by the great Rene' van Rems, to the super talented individuals in attendance socializing and enjoying the music, food and drinks, I truly enjoyed every bit of that experience.

 

As we walked around, the fabulous vendors had their beautiful blooms on display.  Vendors and Suppliers traveled from Ecuador, Colombia, South Africa, and Holland to name a few. A lovely sight to see indeed!!
