Miss Sonoma County Orientation
This past Sunday, I attended the Miss Sonoma County orientation for the upcoming pageant in March. It was tons of fun! On the way over, I got emotional when I thought of finally seeing the committee. As I've gotten older, I've become more and more of a crier. I got to the venue too early (as usual!) so I stayed in the car for a little while before going in. I always leave too early to go somewhere and then I'm usually there waiting. In the Residential Life community, we say: "Early is on time, on time is late, and late is unacceptable!" so I figured I was in the clear!
It was a blast reconnecting with everyone, but I was surprised that I was the only returner to come to the meeting. I think a lot of girls that are interested actually couldn't make it but I think the girls that did attend got to see how the committee makes you feel like you're a part of a little family. I know Jessica and I can vouch for that! The two of us took pictures together and looked at pageant program books from decades ago. I had a great time. I cannot wait to meet all of the contestants and create our own, new little family!
