What a year 2009 going to be...
As i sit here typing...drinking my fantastic coffee, freshly roasted right down the street, filled to the brim with tiramisu flavored creamer, I am astonished at what the next year holds not just for me, but for all of us. And that is considering what I do know about...let alone what surprises may be in store.
For example, we have been inundated with calls about availability, and thankfully, also reservations for President-elect Obama's Inauguration in January. Apparently the city of Washington, DC has had its accommodations sold out way before the election even took place in anticipation of this historic event. Now every place from Richmond to Baltimore is filling up, and fast!
The inauguration takes place the day after Martin Luther King Day. As they say, timing is everything...how befitting and well, down to my very core i am thrilled that our country seems to be on the right track again by showing we are not as backward as many thought and are ready for an African American to lead us.
This will be a busy time here in Baltimore, for the weekend just prior to the presidential inauguration is the beginning of Nevermore 2009, the year long amazing celebration of Edgar Allan Poe's 200th birthday. Our new Edgar Allan Poe Suite will be open by then, with the new Select Comfort Mattress and velvet covered headboard in place, the new mammoth fireplace mantle installed, the plush seating area at the ready...I may just end up having guest use our own bedroom and take this one for myself! (I am joking, of course...) We are even developing a very special package in tribute to E A Poe.
New president, new room, new year. So much to look forward to!
Take care of yourself and have a fantastic day!
