“This year we had the pleasure of having and honoring our First Lady Michelle Obama in the house. It was a little difficult because of the extra security but it was also very exciting to hear her live and in person.”

Even with the Secret Service and dogs smelling her makeup bags, it was still a moment and experience Toni was blessed to have been a part of.
