Harrisburg Capitol Visit

On Monday, June 10, 2013, I had the great honor and privilege of being invited with my sister queens to visit the Capitol Building in Harrisburg, PA.

Our incredible tour and lunch was hosted by the gracious and knowledgeable State Representative Jerry Stern (who also happens to be my dad's state rep!).  The opportunity to speak with our state representatives was a priceless gift; I especially enjoyed conversing with Representative Stern.  His knowledge of our government and the Bible make him a fascinating man - like my grandfather - I could have sat for hours listening and learning. 

Representative Stern kindly ensured that I had the opportunity to meet my local representative, Steve Santarsiero.  Representative Santarsiero is likewise a passionate and tenacious man who does a great job representing Newtown Township.  He is also an incredible speaker!

I don't think words can adequately express my thanks and appreciation to my directors, Jodi and Scott, who arranged this wonderful opportunity for the Pennsylvania International Titleholders.

Having a day to spend with my pageant sisters was delightful.  They are two incredible young ladies and it was a special treat to get to know them better.

 Here are the numerous photos!
This is the Capitol on a nice sunny day; I walked these steps in the pouring rain (but it was worth weathering the storm!)

Lilly Pulitzer all the way!!!  Dress, jacket and shoes were all deals that I snagged at the Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale.  I am a Lilly fan - her items are fun and feminine.  This dress has delicate white flowers with pearl centers around the jacket collar and cuffs as well as around the neckline of the dress.  The A-Line skirt (not typical for me) added the "June Cleaver" flair that I believe is fitting for a Mrs titleholder.
