Four Years Ago...



Four years ago...
I had just moved to the USA and my friend and I attended the Inauguration...
What an experience and what a difference four years make...
I remember standing in the midst of all these people and just being in awe of the moment...
That the son of an African immigrant was being sworn in as the President of the USA.
I was in awe four years ago and I am in awe today.
Congrats to Mr. President Obama!!



I am also remembering how life can change so much in four years...
Four years ago,
Mr. Pancakes and I had been dating a year....
I moved from Canada to the USA.
I changed jobs.
I changed several residents.
Mr. Pancakes and I moved in together.
Mr. Pancakes and I go engaged.
We found out I had thyroid cancer.
We got married.
I beat thyroid cancer.
I've traveled to and from Canada many many times.
We honeymooned in Barbados.
We completed our emergency fund.
We found out we were having a baby.
Mr. Pancakes went full-time with his business.
We finally went to TN to visit...our future home.
Baby Pancakes is born.
We celebrated our first Christmas as a family of three.
We are celebrating the inauguration today as a family.

I can't wait to see what the next four years has in store for Team Pancakes!!!

You have definitely had an eventful four years filled with so many major life events. Congratulations to President Obama, and here's to a great four years ahead!

You really captured the journey of my own personal history following Obama's now 2 terms. Going from engaged when I attended inauguration to married to pregnant to now my 2 1/2 year old recognizing (and shouting!) Obama whenever she sees him. It hit me hard the beauty it is for my daughter to be born seeing a president of color - that is her reality! Imagine next if it's a woman (#teamHillary #teamWellesley!)...
