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.

On my Delta flight back to NYC from Toronto today, I was flipping through Sky magazine, and an article on the Mississippi Delta caught my eye.
Where to go. What to do. All the summer festivals, food and drink.
As I skimmed the recommendations, one bolded phrase caught my eye:
Pull up a chair and have a helping of barbecue at Kentucky’s Fancy Farm Picnic – – the world’s largest picnic – – held in August.
Look at that, friends and family! We’ve got another publication to add to the list!
I almost grabbed the PA from the flight attendant to get everyone to read page 83…but decided to let them discover it for themselves.
It’s more fun that way.

After I have been working at a summit for three days in my role as master of ceremonies, it takes a while for me to turn off that host instinct.
When I was walking down the concourse at the airport last night, I found myself smiling widely at people I didn’t know and saying hi. It took a few minutes to stop.
Funny thing – – one of the gentlemen that I smiled at was one of our clients.
So that worked out.
