I feel like I've called every ornament my favorite this week. It's a difficult decision. However, this one certainly holds a special place (without a doubt).
In 2003, Dad accepted the John F. Kennedy Profiles in Courage Award (his speech from the day). We all traveled (including my minister, many legislators, friends, etc.) to Boston and spent a weekend enjoying festivities with the Kennedy family. The weekend was bittersweet. We went through a lot getting to that moment, but it was certainly worth it. The afternoon before departing Boston, I purchased an ornament in order to commemorate the experience. This gorgeous ornament (shaped like a drum even though you can't tell in this photo) means a lot to me.
I saved the best for last!
