In Which I Get My First Trophy


Remember the American Mother's Gala I wrote about last week? Well, I went. And guess who else went? Robert! At the last minute he was able to go and so we were able to both have a lovely salmon dinner and chat with other lovely couples at table #9.

He escorted me to the stage and I watched as my friend Liz became the 2013 Oregon Young Mother of the Year. (yay Liz!) The evening ended with me getting a Willow Tree statue of mother and child on a lovely base with my name engraved on it.

It was all very nice. And I'm glad that Robert was able to walk me to the stage.

Hooray! So proud of you and especially glad that Robert could make it.

What a happy moment! But, sometimes it makes me sad that I don't know Robert at all. This is one of those times. Wanna take a trip to the East? Free room and board!

That's a great picture of you guys! (And that looks like a pretty major napkin in the corner. Was Jonah hired to provide origami-d napkins?)

Congrats, great mom!
