Norine Braun had a fun set at ROO then sat in the Royalty booth beyond kewl. I was a seat warmer for the Crown Prince Willem-Alexander of Holland, The Prince of Norway sat right behind me so totally amazing! I was briefed on royalty protocol which was interesting too... this has been quite an adventure far beyond what I expected.

Sounds like things are going great, Norine. Good for you, girl. Chelsea, our eldest had to laugh on how lucky you were to get a hug from Quatchi, she just loves that critter, she has a bunch of him in her room. Have a great one, my dear!
