i live in small town iowa.
think corn fields, poor cell phone reception, and lots of farms.
and i LOVE it!
yesterday, my little home town of 23 years was all over the news because President Obama came to visit and even spent the night!
my dad (who had been actively involved in the prep for the event for the past week--security and such) was able to meet the man first hand this morning. and i couldn't be more proud of him! :)
while i didn't actually get to see him, it was surely a once in a life time experience.
he arrived in our little iowa town (decorah!) last night and spent the night down town at our hotel winneshiek (when i was actually eating dinner--i'll spare you the stories).
and worked out at our local gym this morning.
politics aside--it sure has been an exciting whirlwind for the past 24 hours.
now that he has come and gone, things have already started to quiet down.
the media has packed and gone.
the secret service men are leaving (sad face! why are they so attractive?!?).
but we were on the map.
if only for a few hours.
and it is almost hard to believe.
