Welcome to Capitol Hill and a Mom!

I have heard it said that these are perilous times. Perhaps you feel that our future is in jeopardy as well. I prefer to react to these thoughts by keeping hope and the things that mean the most to me close and doing my research on the rest.

So what does this have to do with a political blog? After graduating from Auburn University (WAR EAGLE!), I found myself with job offers in broadcast journalism that I was unable to accept for personal reasons. Being a reporter has been my dream for nearly 20 years. Be qualified, desired, and yet unable to fulfill that dream was difficult to accept at first. I have been considering this blog as an outlet for my passion since the day I received my bachelors degree. Three years later, my idealistic view of classic journalism hasn’t faded and neither has my desire to be part of it in some form.

And why should you listen to my thoughts anyway? As I follow, research, and weigh the actions within the governing body of our nation, I invite you to engage with me. Share other ideas and valuable information, express your concerns, and help me make up my mind too! That’s RIGHT! I am not trying to convince anyone of anything. I am just starting a conversation free of gatekeepers above me who could have interest in tailoring content to their liking. I am a mom. I am a wife. I am a Veteran. I am an American. And… thanks to this page…  I am apparently a blogger now too!
