Happy Lunar New Year from Michigan Lion Dance at the Governor's Residence yesterday. I had so  much fun introducing our amazing teenagers to Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, State Senator Stephanie Gray Chang, and Michigan Asian Pacific American Affairs Commission chair Jamie C Hsu (even if in the middle of finals week), that I forgot to introduce myself to the governor.
