I am one lucky gal who has a great friend who works on the Hill and I was able to attend the Inauguration with a ticket in hand. Standing so close to the Capitol, I could feel the emotion as President Obama starts his second term in office - it was pretty amazing to be there and present for the event. Here are some of my pictures from the day.
