On Tuesday, February 12, 2013, I had the privilege of attending the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s annual Saint Valentine’s Day Luncheon and Fashion Show. How was it? Completely amazing.
As I mentioned earlier, I was selected for the Spirit of Tom Landry Character Award—a great honor that I’m so grateful to receive! The luncheon and fashion show were such amazing experiences, and I even got to bring along one of my first childhood friends, Alessia. (I thought she’d enjoy the fashion show much more than any other one of my friends, too.)
We got out of our car in the pouring rain, something I assumed was “good luck” for the events to come. Running into the Meyerson Symphony Center in the Dallas Arts District, I knew it would be an exciting day. I was surrounded by tables covered in the classic Valentine’s Day red and pink, with little gift bags—and pledge cards with my face on them!—on the tables. (The fun part about the picture was that I took it on my camera while I was in San Francisco!)
