CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!

Our dear friends Allison and Jack are having a baby!! It seems like just yesterday they were having their first dance as husband and wife! :-)

Allison and I met in September of 2001 at UC Irvine, when we both joined Tri Delta. We bonded over our Alpha Rho connection and I quickly became an admirer of hers. Having been a few years older than me, I watched in awe at how effortlessly she handled her academics (even graduating from UC Irvine with honors). While she may not know it, she is a good part of the reason I decided to pursue graduate school. There's a rule I steadfastly live by: "Always surround yourself with people who challenge you to do better." Allison is a shining example of that and she served and continues to serve as a role model for me. When Allison and Jack became engaged and later married in the summer of 2006, both Mr. Howard and I knew they were a couple that was going to last. We watched as they took their vows and partied the night away, knowing what special friends they were, both to each other and also to us! Now, as they enter into the world of first-time parents, we are just as in awe of them as I was when we met 7 years ago. And while we don't get to see each other as much as we'd hope, they will continue to be in our lives for a long time to come!

Allison, Jack, and Baby Robbins - we are soooo excited for you!!!
All our love,
The Howards
