Oh, snap. Not only did Michelle Obama make the genius move of bringing a hostess gift for Laura Bush on the day of the inauguration, she made it personal.
Mrs. O reports: "But unlike many hostess gifts-candy, wine, flowers-this one was a highly personalized selection. It was a leather-bound journal inscribed with a quote from Louis L’Amour, the American writer known for his iconic Western novels: 'There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. Yet that will be the beginning.' Accompanying the journal was a pen engraved with the date January 20, 2009."
Wow....just, wow. Hostess gifts may never be the same. Michelle has officially set the gold standard.
