Andrew (MKA LUKE MY HUSBAND!) got his GOUTTE this weekends. I AM SO PROUD OF HIM. He really deserved it, has for a while if you ask me, but even better, I can honestly say that I didn't write the recommendation for him to receive it, so he also knows that OTHER people notice all his work, which is good, because sometimes he needs reminding about his awesome-ness, and the timing could not be better what with his trials coming up this next weekend, and SQUEE!
[For those who aren't SCAdians, what I'm referring to is the Goutte de Sang, an award given by the Kingdom of An Tir (our SCA Kingdom) to individuals who have given substantial service to the Kingdom. It's a 'grant' level award, which is the middle tier in the three tears of Kingdom level awards, the first being the Award of Arms, which is given for going above and beyond the basics of participation, the Grant of Arms, and finally the Patent of Arms, or the peerages which is the highest level of recognition one can receive (mostly). ]
