Sorry for the delay in updating this (see http://www.Facebook.com/HannahBoucherKirkpatrick for more regular updates on this stuff!) but I’m proud to say that Vermont has FINALLY (for the first time in history, that I know of) entered the Top 15 at Mrs. America, the nation’s longest-running pageant for married women!
The entire group of contestants were truly some of the most beautiful, accomplished, kind, thoughtful, and community-focused women I have EVER met. Seriously, not a bad seed in the bunch. And the old adage is true: you’ll make friends forever. And now I will never need to take a cab from the airport again, in any state across the nation (HI and AK, too!)
I have 51 new “sisters” who are equally committed to their families, their causes, their communities, and making a difference in the world. Proud to have every single one of them.
