This year’s Marine Corps Ball was SUCH a blast! This was our last ball here at RS Dallas and one of my favorite ones yet. We had our ball at the Filter Building on White Rock Lake in Dallas and stayed at the Magnolia Hotel nearby. We’ve never had a ball where the venue and hotel where at two separate places. I wasn’t thrilled about it at first but it turned out to be a really cool spot! The weather was perfect, which can be hit or miss in November in Texas, and so we were able to spend the cocktail hour outside. Enjoying a few drinks and conversations with friends – lovely night! I have a few photos from my phone, so they aren’t the best quality but I have to share so we can remember forever!
(one of the Marines Brian recruited!)We’ve missed a few birthday balls over the years due to training and deployments, so I absolutely love the years that we get to go! Getting dressed up and celebrating Brian and his Marine Corps buddies always gets me emotional. Reminds you to be grateful for the time we have together and thankful to all those that have served! Happy 242nd Marine Corps!
