Come one, come all! Come join us at the Macy's 90th Thanksgiving Day Parade! Balloons and floats and singers galore. Clowns and elves and Santa plus more! The streets of the city-that-never-sleeps are going to be filled with people watching, hugging, loving, singing and laughing.

Celebrating. There are going to be people celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas and Hanukkah and everything they want to be celebrating.

Families will be together. Children will be seeing elves and toys and things come to life that they could never imagine seeing. There will be rag-dolls walking around and Santa's elves trying to corral them, fish and pool balls running to say "HI!" Cops and (not so bad) robbers causing mischief in the streets, taxicabs running amuck and not a cab fare!

Watching this event on television for the past 16 years (that I can remember) has been my favorite past-time and tradition (aside from the stuffing that goes with the turkey) of Thanksgiving. Curling up on the couch with my cousins and grandpa (may he rest in peace, he would be ecstatic if he knew I was in the parade) to watch it.

Now, I get to live it. How freaking COOL is that?

Anyway. Watching the parade is the most amazing thing. The balloons and the floats and the singers and the people you get to interact with. The memories you get to make watching little kids have fun.

Wave, smile, throw confetti and enjoy! Get ready for Macy's 90th Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade because we are ready for YOU.

Have a happy, healthy, safe and fun-filled Thanksgiving!

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
