On Saturday morning, January 29, I had a wonderful time meeting and speaking to the many mothers and daughters who gathered together at St. Louis School here in Memphis for the Mother Daughter Tea and Fashion Show. My friend Gena Wolbrecht organized this first class event, and again, I was so excited to be able to share my story and encourage the women and girls gathered to make a difference in our community. There is nothing a determined group of people cannot accomplish.
It was such fun to spend the day with such sweet girls.

On Sunday, January 30, I was so excited and happy to be able to witness the crowning of my dear friend Melody Usdan as Mrs. Tennessee America 2011! I am so happy her dream has come true, and I'm so excited that we are able to represent Tennessee in the same year. It was also so much fun to see tons of my pageant friends, including my predecessor, Mrs. Tennessee International 2010, Cydney Miller.
