This picture, taken by photographer Sean McCabe, is a perfect reflection of the year I have had as Mrs. Illinois International. The time is drawing very near to crown the 2010 Mrs. Illinois, and I have nothing but joy to pass on to that next lucky Mrs! This past year has given me more confidence in myself and my abilities and taken me to places that I would have never dreamed possible just a few years ago. My advice for life is -- look up, smile, and follow your dreams to reality!
