This blog and I have been through a lot together: graduate school, first jobs, second jobs, cross-country moves, third jobs, fourth jobs, funerals, an engagement, a marriage ... and a divorce. 

We've learned a lot, grown even more and we're still adventuring. 

Let's adventure together.

Volunteer already!

One of the greatest joys in my life is helping those who need a smile. One of the skills I've been blessed with is the ability to turn a situation into a laughable moment and to focus on the awkward fun in life.

Almost two years ago, I began volunteering at the OU Children's Hospital with the volunteer organization. This, honestly, was a perfect fit for me. I was able to take a few hours a week to hang out with children who needed a smile and in turn I was given the opportunity to learn a few lessons from those kiddos.

Now, as a member of the board, I'm excited to brag about our first Boo Boo Dash 5k and the more than 300 participants who put the chilly Oklahoma weather in its place and supported such a wonderful organization.

Today, I challenge you to do something to help someone else. You don't have to save the world by making babies laugh; however, I'm 100 percent certain there is something out there waiting for you!


They've got moves like Jackson.
