I began plotting my move to Manhattan at the tender age of eight at the dining room table in our tiny farm community in Kentucky.
It took me a few years, and I made some stops along the way, but I made it. And I’ve a spent the past decade here in the Big Apple.
Thank you, New York City, for being everything that little girl dreamed of and so much more.
Tomorrow I begin a new adventure in Chicago. I feel like a kid again, and just as excited!

After nearly a decade living in the Big Apple, I think this could work.
It’s like the autobahn — the two lanes would simply have different speed limits.
And no standing and staring ‘up’ allowed in the New Yorkers lane, either.

I have been working in Carefree, Arizona (just outside of Scottsdale) for the past three days.
I knew Arizona would be hot in June, but we have been experiencing record-breaking temps — 115 degree days and ‘cooler’ evenings that barely reach 90.
But that old adage about it being a ‘dry heat’ is true…
My hair has looked fabulous.

We are living in the age of the TV spokesperson.
Flo for Progressive. That perky AT&T gal at the mall. The mayhem guy for Allstate. And they all owe their careers and pricey exclusive contracts to this guy:
He made Verizon’s slogan ‘Can you hear me now?’ ubiquitous and annoying.
Then he disappeared.
I guess his no-compete clause finally expired.

Happy Birthday, Kentucky!
Thank you for being my birthplace, home of the #BBN and the state where…
Peanut butter was invented!
That’s right – – right in Lexington in 1958.
There is a little tear in the corner of my eye…
