Tournament of Love and Beauty II

Where do I start?

First of all, greta_k got elevated to the Order of the Pelican.

It was absolutely awesome, and it demonstrated that yes, Greta, pigs can fly. And a particularly cute one (stuffed) made its way to her vigil site, courtesy of the talented pirategirleee.

One of the best moments of the whole thing was when HRM plucked her out of the audience during morning Court, to tell her that she was being elevated.

The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and emotional. I don't think that there was a dry eye in the house, particularly when her medallion was presented to her, and she looked absolutely beautiful in her blue and green houppelande.

We are so proud of her . . .

Also, it was wonderful to see Mathilde get her writ for her Laurel, Mel and Geoffrey their Pearls, Livia's elevation to the Order of the Pelican (she looked beautiful in her white robe and orange shot-silk robe!), as well a lot of other deserving folks get recognized for their talents and service.

In the end, we came home to a house full of friends, and had a wonderful time until past midnight.

A perfect day, if there ever was one.
