Here's Sasha!

For those of you that were waiting for photos of Sasha in Spain, here are a couple of her and the First Lady walking through the streets of Granada, a southern town in Spain. I'm loving the sandals on both mom and daughter.

First Lady Michelle Obama's Independence Day Message in Support of Military

Courtesy of the White House Blog here is a special Independence Day message from First Lady Michelle Obama imploring all Americans to support military families. Some suggestions for supporting families:

 

  • Stay informed about the activities and concerns of military families in your community and across the nation;
  • Take time out to get to know and express appreciation to military families;
  • Help ensure military families have the opportunity to share their stories and voice their concerns in your community;
  • Help ensure the places where you work, worship, and participate in community life connect their activities to addressing military families’ unique challenges; and
  • Identify opportunities in your communities to tap into the unique skills, experience and commitment to service our military families display each day. White House Blog

 

If you are the type of person who likes to watch fireworks via television (I'm not) you can watch the entire fireworks display on the National Mall via the White House Website.  It actually looks better on my computer monitor than it wold on TV. Gotta love the Mac. The music is nice too.

Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden- "A Friendship Between Ladies"

Y'all are slipping. How could y'all have let us miss this halfway positive article over at Politico. Yes, now that Nia Malika Henderson hopped over to the Washington Post to replace Robin Givhan, Politico manages to give us something other than mindless anti-Michelle Obama prattle. WASHINGTON - JANUARY 27: U.S. first lady Michelle Obama greets Dr. Jill Biden before U.S. President Barack Obama's speech to both houses of Congress during his first State of the Union address at the U.S. Capitol on January 27, 2010 in Washington, DC. Since taking office a little over a year ago, Obama's approval ratings have dropped significantly according to recent polls. (Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images) The story is by Amie Parnes and its called "A Friendship Between Ladies"

 

Earlier this month, when Jill Biden celebrated her 59th birthday with staffers at an intimate gathering on an Eisenhower Executive Office Building balcony, Michelle Obama stopped by to join in on the fun.

 

The first lady gave the second lady a hug, and the two chatted over a cake adorned with flowers made of frosting and cooed over a Biden staffer’s newborn baby.

 

Those close to Obama say the moment speaks to the close relationship the first lady and Biden have forged since getting to know each other while stumping for their husbands on the campaign trail two summers ago. It’s a friendship fused through an only-you-know-how-it-feels bond that has continued to grow stronger since the two families moved to Washington, according to sources close to both women. Politico, Amie Parnes

WASHINGTON - NOVEMBER 11: First lady Michelle Obama and Doctor Jill Biden, wife of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, laugh as a Alma Powell speaks during the ServiceNation launch of 'MISSION SERVE: Forging A Continuum Of Service' at George Washington University on November 11, 2009 in Washington, DC. (Photo by Kris Connor/Getty Images)

The article highlights the fact that unlike previous administrations, the spouses of the President and the Vice President work together a great deal and even travel together. Remember they both went to Haiti together. They've done the baseball thing together. they both work on outreach and education related to their military families initiative.  Dr. Biden's granddaughter plays on the same team with weeMichelle Sasha Obama.One of my favorite photos from the campaign is of Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill campaigning together.

Its a nice feel good story from Politico... burn it to memory because who knows when we'll get another one of those out of that outfit.
