2012 in Review

We celebrated the New Year in downtown Augusta with wine and cheese cake, and I rounded out the month in Montgomery, AL at RPM’s inaugural Miss Alabama USA pageant.

Unimaginable

Since Friday morning’s first reports about the shooting in Connecticut, I’ve been struggling to find words.  Not that I necessarily need to say them aloud, just to myself.  I went about my weekend with a heaviness in my chest, but at least everyone I love is alive right now.  I’ve been trying to make things okay in my […]
