And So It Begins...

I've never done a blog before, so please bear with me. I've thought about it many times, but didn't think that anyone would really be interested. I don't have a "cause" or a relative in the Armed Forces or anything particularly special that enticed me to do this....that is, until I was a part of the 2009 Inauguration of President Obama and Vice President Biden. You see, I'm a tour guide or, more correctly, a Licensed Professional Washington, DC Tour Guide. I spent five days during the Inauguration week working, leading groups of students around this beautiful city for this historic occasion. So many friends and relatives asked me about my experiences that I told them I would write a blog. Now here it is, a month later, and I'm just now getting around to it. It seems like the older I get, the faster time flies. Where did that last month go??

I have a dear friend who just celebrated her first year as a blogger. I check her page once or twice a week and it's fantastic! Perhaps you've seen it -- she goes by the ID of "AirmanMom". She is the one who has really inspired me to take on this project, so I want to thank her publicly for setting the example and being a great friend and role model! If you haven't visited her blog yet, please be sure you do so.

Well, this is the first step. It's a small one, but as we all know, "the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step". I need to get a little bit more of a handle on this blogging thing before I get into it too deeply.

Please stay tuned!
