People always ask, “So you like music, what got you into radio?”
- Paul Harvey and The Rest of the Story. I’d walk the one city block to my dad’s house on my lunch breaks in the 6th grade. He made me ham sandwiches while we listened.

It was wonderful visiting my family over the Easter holiday, as I’m sure it was for you, if you got to see yours. I don’t visit mine often. We don’t live very far from each other, and
I decided to decorate my planner one day. I dressed it up with stickers, and I write around them. This is one of my upcoming pages. I swear by the things I put in my planner. Writing
A few weeks ago, I hurried into work to tell Lanette about the most amazing meal I’ve ever had. And I think you might be interested, too. Luke and I went to Family Dinner Night with Slow
I’m a big fan of the monthly delivery subscriptions that drop off packages of samples and things to try. I had an ipsy subscription for about a year; I’ve debated signing up for monthly book clubs, and
I am many years late to the game, but it is only in these past two weeks that I finally got around to watching Seinfeld. I’m going CRAZY! It’s so incredibly written! What a riot. Perfect in
This weekend I’m heading to Ohio with my boyfriend. He’s taking me to meet his parents for the first time. I feel great about it, because I’m great with parents (ha ha). But really, I love meeting
