So what are you up to these days?

6 kids and work wait, no it feels like 6 kids but it is actually just 2. Seth is 5 years old and Adeline (Addy) is 8 months. I work at Boozman-Hof Regional Eye Clinic in Rogers, AR.

Who did you marry and how/where did you meet them?

Seth (Adam) McGhee, he is from Decatur, AR. He works at Decatur State Bank. I met him my freshmen year in college while I was in the bank one day through a friend of a friend. He asked me to sing at a church revival and he said he would pick me up. We have been together ever since.

Any adventures or excursions or vacations you'd like to tell us about?

I took Seth to Florida at 1 year old, Cancun at 2 years old, and San Francisco at 3 years old. I will never take my children on an airplane again. Anytime I have to travel for work or for fun it will be via car with kids or air without kids. I do not recommend children in an airport or on the plane unless you have something to knock them out with. :-)

What has been the most valuable lesson you've learned since high school?

When my daughter was born she was very very sick and in NICU for a few weeks. When the doctor told me he did not know how she made it through the night I realized that God has blessed us more than I ever realized. I no longer take for granted the fact that my family and I are healthy and happy. We have more than I will ever deserve. I enjoy each day I have with those I love. I really mean that too — My children are the greatest accomplishment and the greatest joy I will ever know.

If one of your classmates could know just one thing about your life since high school, what would it be?

I am happy. That's it. I don't have any wild and crazy stories and nothing to tell that would impress anyone. I am just happy. I work hard, have a great job, and I love being a mom.

If you could tell a current senior something, what would it be?

Ten years from now you still won't know what you want to do with your life or what you want to be when you grow up and that is just alright!

And, most importantly, what is your favorite song from the nineties?

"I Want To Be Loved Like That" by Shenandoah — sappy I know but I just love the words and I want to live my life like that song...
