In this episode of the quite good PBS series “Dream of Italy,” you will shop in food markets, cook with a professional, admire some of Rome’s many architectural masterpieces, learn to create mosaics, appreciate gelato, meet a renowned street artist and dance in a quadrille. Whew, that’s a lot! But it’s an enjoyable video.
As seen in a random restaurant today.
This ray of sunshine came into my life in 2007.
This woman is smart, fierce, loyal, and I admire her more than I can say.
But, let me try.
She’s a superb mother:
She’s an equal partner and loyal mate:
She’s a terrific daughter:
She’s a true, loving sister who has her brother’s back:
She’s a smart, educated woman:
Who understands that education changes everything:
She’s a professional (and I won’t even hold the fact that she’s a lawyer against her, tee hee):
She is compassionate:
She’s a serious gardener, who isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty:
She’s full of grace:
She’s all about girl power and women’s rights:
She values travel and loves going to new places. She dives right in wherever she is:
She’s full of life no matter what she does:
She walks with confidence:
She can be quite silly:
Because she has a well-developed sense of humor:
She can cut a rug:
She can be tough when she needs to be:
And sweet when she wants to be:
She enjoys some retail therapy, even as First Lady:
And I doubt that she suffers fools gladly:
She hangs with good people:
In every way, on every day, I love her. She is my kind of woman.
In short, she’s practically perfect in every way. She is FLOTUS:
It has been our honor to have you as our First Lady for the past 7 years. I hope your last year is your best yet!
Please don’t be a stranger when you regain your private life next year.
Happy birthday, Michelle, happy birthday to you!
