Life is the Greatest Show on Earth.


This year, I was honored to be on the Shoals Heart Ball committee. With a beautiful vintage circus theme, this amazing event was a huge success....490 people attended and we raised $250,000 for the American Heart Association. Because of this money raised for research, lives are being saved every day!

We enjoyed a delicious dinner while circus performers dangled from silk ribbons and trapezes above our heads. Then, at the afterparty, we had the most wonderful time dancing the night away to the sweet soul sounds of Super T! If you ever have an opportunity to see him and his awesome band, please go....he knows how to work the crowd like no other. He even provided the entertainment for Jenna Bush's wedding reception! (that's George W. Bush's daughter, you guys!)

Hope that you all are having a happy Valentine's Day....if you'd like to help out HEARTS of others, go here today and send a free conversation heart Valentine, and Macy's will donate $2, up to $250,000 to the American Heart Association! 

Share the LOVE!
