Favorite One Simple Wish moment so far: 
The holiday party One Simple Wish held for homeless families This one time, at One Simple wish... we visited families living in motel rooms and invited them to a holiday party. It was the most surreal experience for me- just how incredibly grateful the families were and willing to invite us into their homes. It just reminded me to count my blessings and to appreciate even the small things.

This celeb makes me Justin Beiber-fan crazy: 
The most "fan-crazed" moment I had was for Dave Matthews. Every year, Nashville has a giant Memorial Day Parade and it just so happened that this specific holiday weekend the County Music Awards were in town. At the last minute- my friend and I got tickets for the CMA's sound check. Both being huge DMB fans, we HAD to get downtown- parking was a disaster so we literally ran through the Memorial Day parade, pass the floats and marching bands in order to not miss Dave sound check. Dedication.

I could listen to this song on repeat for hours: 
Heart Like Mine by Miranda Lambert. It's my theme song.

This is just about perfect:
A day at the beach with good friends 

Besides granting wishes, what I'm looking forward to most about this trip: 
Experiencing the different city cultures and experiencing life on the road- Maybe I missed my calling as a tour manager. lol

I don't get to sit back and reflect a lot because things are so busy here but at A Night of 1000 Wishes while one of our presenters was speaking, I looked around the room and saw it full of so many supporters, so much love and I was just so overwhelmed with pride I started crying. I am so happy to have created a way for so many people to share their love and support with kids who've been in such terrible circumstances.  It just fills my heart with so much pride!
