My friend, Dr. Shanti Nolan, recently completed officer training school for the air force and moved to Washington, DC. This is her FIRST GIG!! She's conducting The Airmen of Note at the National Tree Lighting Ceremony where she is not only inches from the president and his family, but also Rodney Atkins, and KERMIT!!
I know, I know, the pictures are HORRIBLE - I took them with my phone while watching on my computer. Still, come ON - that's my friend up there!! I've known her for a million years and I'm SO FREAKING PROUD of her! I hope it was super crazy amounts of fun.
