One year ago today on her 48th birthday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin accepted an award from the Clare Booth Luce Foundation for “putting family first by not running for President in 2012” and delivered an epic keynote speech at CPAC two hours later.

2012 Birthday Celebrations
Bristol Palin – who earlier in the day had a book signing in DuPont Circle – documented her mother’s birthday celebrations in Episodes five and six of Life’s a Tripp. Though Lifetime has pulled down the complete episodes from their website, you might be able to find clips of salient points there. Following CPAC, Bristol and Willow threw an impromptu party in the Palin’s hotel room, after which, Gov. Palin celebrated her 48th birthday at Matisse Cafe / Restaurant.
Life’s a Tripp Episode Six documented the large family celebration of Gov. Palin’s 48th birthday which was held after she returned to Alaska. One of her birthday gifts was a small Ruger semi-automatic pistol for concealed carry.
