Dream Big


Written by...

In honor of my birthday, even though officially it was yesterday, I have a very special video to share with you. This special YouTube episode is all about Baby, my 2013 RT Classic Dodge Challenger. Several of you in the past have asked me several questions about how I came to find her, how she inspired me to do pinup, and what makes her so special to me. I answer all these questions and more in the video. I hope you all enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed filming this brand new episode of Dream Big.

It was another late night, way past my normal bedtime. I'm sitting alone in a well lit room looking out the window into pitch-blackness. The night-creatures are buzzing, chirping, croaking, fluttering about, and flashing their signals for attention. If you listen closely it's like an orchestra warming up for the symphony. I resume my focus and remember why I'm still awake and not already asleep in my what could be comfy, (if I bought a new mattress) for a bed. But I'm not, I'm patiently waiting for my comforter to dry before I can crawl under it. So while I wait I'm writing this column for next Monday's Dream Big. 

I rest my head in my hand that's propped up on my elbow, and occasionally my head slips right out of it. I don't even realize how tired I am until my eyelids are sticking to my eyeballs, it's that awful feeling of being heavy and if I just let them rest for a few minutes I'll be ok. But it's not, and I'm going to either make myself try to stay awake, or I'...

Have you ever had a goal or a dream that you wanted so bad, you could feel it in your gut? Something that was almost considered crazy and that others deemed unobtainable. If so, how did you manage to grab it and pull it to you? I'm still working on this very thing, and to keep myself preoccupied with other things I create a smaller goal that's under my control. Now that my kids are back in school I can really get back into longer, more strenuous walking trails in the morning hours, and then come home to work on my most difficult goals of acting, writing, and modeling. 

I've still been diligent in trying to get back down to a size 8 instead of being a size 10. It's a slow process, but I'm getting there without binge dieting. Although I do eat healthy; stress, lack of sleep, and not having the metabolism of a twenty-year-old doesn't help in keeping those pesky extra pounds off. Even though I am comfortable in front of a camera, I am not however comfortable in my own skin. Anyone could pay...

Today I had the pleasure of interviewing, not one, but two of the greatest filmmakers in Knoxville, Will Allman, and Brandon Shelton.  In case you may not already know, Will Allman is the director, and producer of Dream Big, and without him my show would not go on. He is also a very talented writer, filmmaker, and director of his new movie, Something's In The Woods, which is coming out soon. I have a very small part in the film, which is quite exciting, you won't want to miss it. And I also had the pleasure of working with Brandon Shelton on a new project recently, and if you'd like to find out more about his latest film watch the video below. 

In a world full of make-believe, it is film and television that brings it to life. Whether you've written the script, or are playing a role, you must follow the directors vision. Let your imagination be your guide, and always Dream Big.

It's Saturday. Mid-morning. I'm pondering my day's activities. The usual, household chores, and maybe an outing later. A nice long drive perhaps, or maybe a long walk; if anything to just clear my head. So much has happened in the past few weeks and not happened all at the same time. My hard work has paid off. I've enjoyed living and learning by experience. It's not been easy, but nothing in life is. Without hardships we can never learn from trial and error. I personally prefer to have set backs. I know it sounds strange, but without struggle, there is no way to survive. 

I've had hard lessons to learn. Trying to balance my career and being a parent isn't easy, but I do the best I can. My children inspire me everyday to keep going and to never give up. My oldest two of my fabulous five kids tell me how proud of me they are, and to me that's the greatest feeling ever. I want to prove to my children that they can do anything if they believe in themselves, no matter what they want to be. I...
