Happy Thanksgiving!

As I finish up my grocery list for the upcoming Holiday, I wanted to take a moment and thank all that have helped make this an amazing year.

Seems strange that it was only September 7th of last year that I made a decision to take my love of voice acting full-time. What a journey it has been!

It was New Year's day that the call came RAGGS had just been picked up by several PBS stations. I've since voiced around 40 episodes as Razzles, and have received word production will continue next year. In fact, this Saturday my husband and I plan to attend the live RAGGS Christmas show! Watching this amazing series grow, and having the chance to work with such an amazing cast and crew is something I am so thankful for.

I am also thankful for all of my new voice acting friends! The list is way too long to write out, but each of you are so special to me. In fact, yesterday I had the pleasure of showing Peter O'Connell around town and then joining Bob Souer for dinner! I am one lucky lady :)

This morning I looked over my books and was thrilled to realize the slow summer months are finally over and things have picked up considerably in the VO world! In addition, the on-camera work has remained steady, and I had 2 TV commercial auditions in just the past few days! Looks like I'll have quite the list come Thanksgiving Day of things to be thankful for!

Most of all, I want to thank each of you who take time out of your busy schedules to read my ramblings. While I know I'm not always the most gifted or most eloquent, I do hope I've been able to inform you and entertain you from time to time.

I wish each of you a Thanksgiving Holiday filled with family, friends, love, and laughter!

--Edited to add: It is now the day before Thanksgiving and I found another thing to be thankful for...the ability to bake pies and do a voice gig at the same time! What a life!
