SIDENOTE: You know it is a problem (or is it...) when your body's internal clock starts waking you up a 8 o'clock instead of the usual 11am...
In the past couple months, I have been in SOOOO many parades, on radio, television and in newspapers. To this ay, I can't believe this is all happening to me! Now, I am educating people on the importance of safe driving, good character through Character Counts and visiting all ends of my state. Things do truly happen for a reason!
Some of my most memorable appearances have happened over the past few months and I just have to share!
I got the opportunity to be in the ABC Thanksgiving Day Parade as well as film two hits for Good Morning America with other state titleholders! It felt like the entire state of Delaware came to watch this parade because our float (which was a kittens float....??) could not go two feet without me hearing "DELAWAREEE!!!" being screamed. That was awesome to be a part of!

One of the many incredible appearances I have had happened just this past week! I got the opportunity to work with the Delaware State police (THANK YOU!!) to travel to numerous hospitals, special needs facilities and schools to visit kids. Talk about one emotional and incredible experience! Nothing gets to your heart quite like a young child telling you that he or she wants "to get better" for Christmas and nothing else. It really puts into perspective those things in your life that you take for granted each and every day. I got to meet young kids (who thought I was dressed up as a fairy...) as well as some teenage boys and girls who loved the fact that a "beauty queen" came to see them. Putting a smile on everyone's face made that long week so worth it. I would do it every single day of my year if I could. It was moving like nothing else.
I will have another blog about my send-off and other preparations up soon (and by soon, I mean before I give up my Miss Delaware crown in June...)!!
Stay chill and remember that things happen for reason,
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
