I had completely forgotten this was going to happen.

  Oh man. I did two phone interviews with two different papers over the past few weeks and then promptly forgot about them.

  That is, until I awoke to text messages from friends telling me that they saw me in the paper. Specifically, that they saw this:
   Yes, it is exciting. And maybe, just maybe a tiny bit...I don't know, makes me feel shy or something. Shy and happy. Like I did when I was a little kid and kind of wanted to say something in front of a group, or demonstrate in dance class, but another part of me didn't at all. 

  Eventually, the former part won out, I guess. At least, being a performer, you really don't have a choice in the matter when it comes saying stuff or dancing or singing in front of people. I mean, that's kind of the point. And that's kind of how I get paid. 

  And the truth is I really enjoy it. So, there it is. Just thought I'd share.

Well, this Momma was kind of REALLY excited to read the News Journal yesterday!

Remember when you were in the local papers and the paper, by mistake, captioned you with my name?

I thought it was a great review!

My grandmom told me today that she saw the article about you. What was funny was that she said it was a shame they had to use a picture of you with your "husband" instead of just a picture of you by yourself. It was so cute, like she wanted you to have the spotlight all to yourself! She conceded that they were advertising the show as well so I guess it made sense : )
