In May, my daughter Sayde and I were part of the American Idol Grand Finale. What an experience for two small town girls from 'Redneck' Vermont! Our 'true colors' were evident from the moment we landed in L.A. We had never heard of these shuttle buses that bring you to your hotel so we spent two hours trying to figure out what our transportation was that was waiting for us. We arrived at the Beverly Hilton exhausted and a bit chilly (yes, it was colder in L.A. than it was in VT and this Northern VT girl didn't bring a jacket!) Nothing stopped us as we skipped down street and stopped within the first five minutes ... who knew L.A. could be dirty? It was not at all what we had envisioned from late night television shows!

Another of the year's highlights ... I finished my Bachelor of Psychology with Honors in December! I never thought at 42 years old I would experience the joy of being a college graduate!
The most important of my year ... to have a loving, healthy family to share my life with!
