I was almost a Supermarket Superstar....

OK, well not really, but I did do some promo work for Lifetime's new summer show, Supermarket Superstar!   Unfortunately, I was recently informed that I only ultimately made it to the cutting room floor and not an actual promo (I was also told however, that my footage was really good, they just "went in a different direction" for the ads.  So that's good...right?!).  It is the nature of this beast, called Entertainment.
But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the show, premiering tonight on Lifetime and hosted by Stacy Keibler (or see some photos from my "didn't make the cut" promo).

July 11, 2013.
Two months ago Picnic Area 11 premiered!  Also two months ago, well actually, a little longer ago, sometime before that, when I was finishing Picnic Area 11 up, finalizing it and getting it ready, I set a goal.  That goal was to hit 3000 views on YouTube in two months!  It was something that I thought was possible, but something I KNEW I would work hard to achieve.

The movie premiered two months ago today, and the feedback, experience, and support has been truly AMAZING!  I'm so excited to see how Picnic Area 11 will continue to grow over time, and get more and more exposure and views!

Let Freedom Ring. Always.

The 4th of July.
An amazing day, and not just because of the barbequing and fireworks (although that's great too). The 4th of July celebrates the birth of our great nation and ultimately the way of life that many of us live everyday, and unfortunately, that many of us take for granted.
Freedom and Liberty are words thrown around a lot, sometimes so much that they can lose their meanings. But these words are so important to our country's history, and to all of humanity's future. Think about that word for just a second, Freedom. Any amazing gift that should have come guaranteed, but, as history and our present show, did not and does not. America can be flawed, but it's belief in freedom is real and inspirational and continues to influence.
But the reason I love America the most, is her ability to inspire dreams and hope in all people. In the very fiber of our nation (and it's birth) we believed in something greater. That all people are equal, that all people should be free, and that all people can pursue what brings them happiness.
An ideal, yes, of course, but also a very real goal that we continue to strive towards.
We aren't perfect, but I love that we keep working to be! The way we dream. The way we hope. It raises all of us to new heights!

HAPPY 4th of JULY!! Let Freedom ring....always...and for all people!
