Just two weekends ago my sorority finally had Big-Little Reveal. I’m SO excited to FINALLY announce that my little is a lovely junior named Tricia! It’s so exciting to talk about her in public and not keep it a secret anymore! Tricia is transfer nursing student from Sanford, NC and is such a sweet girl. SHE IS AWESOME. Over the past month and a half, I’ve been working my butt off to gather goodies and make crafts for her to put in four different baskets of surprises for four weeks straight. Well, FINALLY, the crafting and money spending is over, as it ended with a big celebration on the beach and then going out to a party my AGD sisters.
The reveal was really exciting… we all formed a long line on the beach and made a tunnel with our arms for the new girls (the littles) to run through one by one. At the end of the tunnel, I was hiding in a decorated box and popped out when Tricia ran through. Both of us were SO excited when I popped out and we hugged and laughed and took a bunch of pictures with our family on the beach. It’s a really rewarding feeling to finally have my little and see how much she appreciated everything I’ve done for her so far. I like that I have some leadership in the sorority, even though I do not have an official position in the chapter (which I wouldn’t have time for anyway). I know that Tricia is really excited to have me as her big, and we’re already getting super close. She knows I will be there for her if she ever needs anything and I’m happy to help her find her place in our chapter. This week is initiation week, with ceremonies each night for our new members before they officially become sisters of Alpha Gamma Delta after the initiation ceremony on Friday evening. Here are some pictures of the baskets and crafts I made for Tricia, and also some cute shots of the reveal and after-party. YAY FOR FINALLY HAVING A LITTLE!
