I also absolutely loved Laura Bush's book and started to really like W as a person as I read her account of life with George. So by the time his book was released, I was sold. I also came to the realization that as a President, he made decisions that we could not possibly understand unless put in the same shoes. I do think that history will decide what kind of President he was (along with every other). But I was thrilled to meet him and see that he was a gracious and funny man, and a true patriot.
This will be my one and only political post, but it's not truely meant to be that at all. It was just a cool moment in time that I will never forget! If you haven't read Laura's book.... it was a wonderful account of her life growing up and leading up to life in the White House. There are some fabulous decorating secrets of which first lady decorated which rooms too, and how they've changed over the years. I couldn't put it down!
