I had the honor of volunteering with my colleagues from work in the Karaoke Room at last night's Night to Shine. While our Honored Guests were eating dinner, the volunteers had a chance to play around a little bit and sing a few songs. Having never sung karaoke before, I jumped at the chance to sing in front of an almost empty room. I can definitely see the appeal. Even for someone like me, who likes to stay out of the spotlight, there's something inside that lights up when you're on stage like this. I remember this feeling from every performance I ever had while playing the tuba. It awakens something deep within. Of course last night wasn't about me. It wasn't about my coworkers. It was all about our Honored Guests. And they OWNED the stage. I am blessed to have been able to clap and shout and sing and dance and party all night long with them. They grabbed hold of that spotlight and soaked in every moment. It was an amazing night and I'm already counting down the days to Night to Shine 2019. Oh, and thanks to Betsy for this fun picture. #karaoke #NightToShine #blessed
One day old me.
17 year old me. Junior/Senior prom. As you can see, I'm going through some old stuff at my parents' house.
Instagram needs a scent filter. These already smell amazing. #ChristmasDinner #MerryChristmas
