I was told once that life is what you make of it. Looks like I took that to heart from a young age because somewhere along the way, I signed up for the greatest life adventure I could ever imagine. I’ve been living out that dream ever since. I’m a Southern Bell, Texas tomboy on a mission to leave this world better than when I found it. I’ve danced in the world of glitz and glam, survived on a deserted island, loved recklessly, fought bravely, won, lost and through it all, refused to quit. Because I truly believe that life IS what you make of it. If we are in fact our own authors…. may this be the story of a girl who never settled, who set out to defy the odds, dreamed fearlessly and along her journey inspired others to follow suite.
