Last night we attended (this is a mouthful) the National Conference of State Societies 2007 Cherry Blossom Princesses Congressional Reception on Capitol Hill. Did you know that Kim D. is the Maryland Cherry Blossom Princess? And did you further realize she is studying Japanese in college? Typically the princesses are escorted into the reception by their state Senator, but Christoph was asked to do the honors for Kim. What a privilege.
