The first was a video clip of the 5 living, past, current and future presidents all in one room-the Oval Office.
Think of the amount of power that was in that room at one time. Five leaders of the most powerful country in the world. Think of the secrets they know, the decisions they have had to make or will make and how many lives these 5 men have affected. Its mind-boggling really! I wish I could have been a fly on the wall at that lunch. What advice would a past president give the future commander in cheif in a time of terrible war and devestating ecomonic instability? As you are looking at the picture it is also amazing to see a man of color in the group. Our country has just witnessed history and this moment in time will go down in the history books forever. 2009 will be remembered as the year Americans elected a black president.
The next article I saw was bit of a validation and relief for me. It is a list of the 25 best jobs in 2009. I bet you will never guess what number one was? Yep! A PR manager.
Its validation that the job i love is truely influential and much needed during a time of uncertainity. As jobs are continually being cut and companies are losing everything, I am thankful and blessed to have a job that this economy still needs. Those failing companies and concerend CEOs come to us for guidance and counsel. They want us to make them successful again, they need us to get their name in the public so they can survive. What a crazy time!

I celebrated the beginning of 2008 in Dallas for the Cotton Bowl with Emily. We had a blast, even though the Hogs had an embarrasing loss against Missouri. We shopped, went to a New Year's Eve party and then to the game. What a great start to the year.
February was pretty low key. One very special thing happen on the very last day of the month though, I met Ryan (well I thought it was the first time I met him, he claims we had met more than a year before that). Its been a great year with him and together we have made some very special memories.
In May Tracey and Mark got married in St. Louis. We had a lot of fun at the wedding and the Cards game and are excited that Tracey is party of our family now. We also had Bekah's Bachelorette Party. We had dinner and spent the night at the Embassy Suites. May was also the month Kelsey got married to Mat. Their wedding was a beautiful spring event and I loved being a bridesmaid for my Fayetteville friend. JUNE
I was in two more weddings in June. Bekah married Dallas in Mtn. Home and the very next weekend Kendall married Keith in Little Rock. Both weekends were so much fun and the brides looked beautiful!
I spent the entire month of July recooperating from the previous 3 weddings. I was pictured out by that time so there wasn't a single picture taken.
August was a month of firsts. The Hogs played the first game of the season and I started my first day at Mitchell Communications Group. We had a great time tailgating and cheering on our Hogs and I absolutley love my new job!
Our family welcomed anew addition in September. Jermone Joseph Reith, III was born on Sept. 4. He goes by Treyson for "third son." He is absolutely perfect and an amazing part of our family.
October was filled with more football, the Razorbacks and the Farmington Cardinals as well as tailgating. I also helped host a Tailgating Wedidng Shower for Stacia and Chris. It was a lot of fun and we watched the Hogs beat Auburn. October is also the month of Halloween so we got all dressed up.
November was a very thankful month. The holiday season started off with a bang and we had an amazing Thanksgiving at Uncle Bob's.
December was another month of weddings. My uncle Don married Tina and Stacia married Chris. We also had Stacia's Bachelorette party in St. Louis. Christmas was great in Ft. Smith, Fayetteville and Memphis.
2008 was a great year and I can't wait to see what 2009 brings.
