Marine Ball!

Last night was our first Marine Ball. So fun! The whole point of the ball is to celebrate the Marines’ birthday, and yesterday we were celebrating their 238th.

State Department and the Marines have had a relationship/partnership for ages. It’s always nice to see them in the embassy, and it was great to be able to celebrate with them. They’re so dedicated and impressive, and we got to witness that firsthand last night during the ceremony. I also think it’s pretty adorable when a 22 year old calls me ma’am.

Anyhow, it was really lovely. The food was great, there was an open bar, and the venue – the Old Royal Naval Academy – was seriously stunning. Looking forward to going to our next one in Bangkok!
