The first few days returning home went by pretty fast. To everyone who called, texted, sent Facebook messages or emailed me, thank you for your kind words! The best part of being IAC champion in Week 1 was having so many past champions, who I have looked up to for so long, reach out to me and offer me advice and welcoming me to the IAC family. I was able to book a few state associations to speak at over the next few months. Toward the end of the week, I started getting a few phone calls from news papers and tv stations about the contest and my story. By far, the highlight was watching my six-year-old son Hudson interviewed by WFMY News 2 and auction on camera. He made the news! I can’t wait to see where this year takes us.
