My virtual elevation to the Order of the Laurel

While the plan had been to be elevated back in April, the pandemic put an end to pretty much all in person events from March. Their Majesties Theuderic and Engelin offered to elevate me virtually, which was held last night.

Thank you to all that attended, as well as the Good Peers that spoke for me. My deep appreciation for Lady Amelia & Mistress ffride for running the event too.

I hope that once the danger lifts that I will see all of you in person & get a hug.

A personal note

I am aware that I haven’t posted for some time, but mundane life pulled me away from much. I do have a small announcement however!

A few weeks ago Their majesties Theuderic II and Engelin II have graciously invited me to join the Order of the Laurel and I have accepted. I am now deeply in the throws of planning garb. So here are a few items that are currently inspiring my garb research.
