We had my crowning celebration on December 13 2009 at our home on Fort Belvoir. There was a cute cake and some great flowers as well as drinks for those who came. Everyone who came got a Passionately Pink for the Cure team pin. Todd was on hand to place my crown and banner on me and my daughter had a blast. I would like the give thanks to the Lord, without whom this wouldn't be happening, He has a plan for me. I thank my husband for being so supportive of me when others weren't. I would like to thank the US Beauties organization for providing the cake and the flowers and the opportunity to represent the beautiful state of Virginia as Mrs. Virginia US Beauties.
