It's been a little while since I posted, huh? Since my last blog post, I sang the national anthem at the Solano Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving day...
It was very early...and pretty chilly! It was my first time singing the national anthem as a soloist so I was pretty nervous. The hour in between the time I arrived and the time I sang the national anthem was torture to my stomach. So many butterflies! I survived, and I enjoyed it a lot. And from what I was told, I sounded pretty good. ;)
In early December, we had the Miss Solano and Miss Napa County 2014 orientation. It was exciting to think that a year ago, I was in their shoes! I am so thankful for this year as Miss Solano. I don't want to pass on my title...but I'm so happy for Miss Solano 2014!
On Christmas Eve, I attended Mission Solano's annual toy drive. Mission Solano is a homeless shelter and rescue mission in Fairfield. They do such amazing work. Starting at 8 AM, families were allowed to come through and pick out toys for their children for Christmas. These gifts may be the only toys the children get all year. It was a really special event, and the children were so happy! They even had hot lunch and a bike raffle, where they raffled of at least 20 bikes to families that attended. I was so honored to be there.
Now that is 2014, I am putting some goals together for the year. Not so much resolutions, but I've had a lot to reflect upon this winter break and I want to start putting my dreams into reality. In less than three weeks, I will be competing in my first pageant of 2014, hoping to earn a spot in the Miss California Class of 2014. Keep me in your prayers, send good thoughts, and cross your fingers! :)
Until next time...
