Tomorrow I’m heading to Nashville to appear on a local talk show called Talk of the Town on Channel 5.

A while back they called me and asked me if I had any fun Valentine’s day projects I could share and I told them I was born thinking up Valentine’s day projects how about this easy valentine heart project and I just needed to make sure my hair was curly and put on the most amazing pair of earrings and red lipstick and I would be there.

Meryll Rose, one of the hosts of the show is literally one of my favorite persons on the planet.

Lots and lots of laughter.Continue reading
