I’ve learned a lot over the past couple of months in my career and in life. I’ve had many great mentors in my life (I’ve been very lucky)and most recently I have had the great opportunity to look up to someone that was helping me find my path. He always told me inspirational stories and “case studies” that I could learn from. Every story had something behind it that I could take away and I appreciated all of them.
I was approached about an article for the Pensacola News Journal by a reporter last week. I gave her a couple of names for people to interview, but she knew that I was also in a Mardi Gras krewe since I work closely with the news media. I knew that the story would come out in Sundays paper and was anxiously awaiting to see the final piece.
I love Valentine’s Day and normally always celebrate with my friends. It’s the concept that I love my friends and it is fun to keep them close to me on this holiday. I also love the smell of fresh flowers and the fun colors of pink and red everywhere I go. Adam is normally not home for Valentine’s Day and for the past couple of years, my best girlfriend and I go to a restaurant together, buy each other presents and enjoy a movie like Step Up 1, 2, and 3! Thank you to my friends boyfriend for letting her spend the day with me.
