My Farewell, thanks for watching

We knew this day had to come sooner or later. Although it may be the last time you see me on HGTV, it’s just the beginning of something greater.  I want everyone to know how much it means to me the outpour of love and support that I have been blessed with time and time again in this journey.

To my family, you have watched in good and bad in struggle and triumph your love has kept me going to only strive for the best.  If I could only begin to repay you for the sacrifices you have made to make me better. From the first time I painted my room and when I had to mow the yard there was always some sort of design behind it, it has always been a passion to make our surroundings more comfortable, thanks for supporting my dreams.

To my Jim, Thanks! With out you really none of this could have been possible, believing in me to believe in myself.  Your love has shown me so many things I though could never happen, you have been my rock and foundation through out this entire ride and I only can look forward to the great years we have ahead. You started this monster making me audition – ha-ha

My best friend Carrie, if anyone knows you do. Even thought we are not blood we are family. You have always believed I would be on TV one day and have never once seconded guessed that. You have stuck by my side all my life and I could not imagine you not being there. Well its true when we say, “we are going to Hollywood” I love you.

To my friends, it’s been awesome to share this with each and every one of you. You all know what our relationships mean to me and our times we have together past and future, I can only hope that I can be as good of a friend to you all as you have been to me.

To my fellow cast mates, our lives are forever tangled if you like it or not, LOL.  We all know what we did and what pressure it was, I love you all and it made it all worth it to meet 10 very creative people I would have never meet other wise. See you soon.

To HGTV and 495, this was an amazing experience and I enjoyed every minute of it and would do it again. Thanks for taking the leap of faith that I could do this show. Next time let me get a little more sleep I think I could produce more. I look forward to your next call.

To my “Fans” that’s weird to say. You either loved me or you either hated me but you still watched. Thanks for the support on either and I promise I will be back.

Last but not least, Candice, Vern and Genevieve I know you wanted to see more from me and I would have loved to hear nicer from you. Either way it was an honor to be in front of you and even be considered somewhat of a peer. Candice call me when you are ready for the cream puff to co-host, Vern we still got a lot to talk about on shopping “for shoes”. Dear Genevieve, please please please please please tell my mom you do like me.

Thank you all for the great memories made for a lifetime.
