It is Day 1 in Jacksonville at the Omni Hotel for Mrs International! I am so excited for the week ahead and so thankful to be a part of this wonderful pageant system that celebrates the accomplishments of married women from all over the world.
Today was a beautiful sunny day in Jacksonville. I had the day to myself to settle into my room and reflect on my year so far ahead of a busy week.
Our orientation started 6pm. It was amazing meeting so many strong, brave and inspiring women from all over the world. We were given a beautiful gift pack full of all sorts of great Mrs International goodies including a towel, water bottle, t-shirt, sweater and much more.
It was a great experience meeting Mrs International 2014, Maggie Thorne. She was even more gorgeous in real life and such a great speaker. She had us all decorate a pair of shoes for Soles 4 Soles.
I'm really looking forward to the week ahead. Be sure to follow me on facebook, twitter, instagram and here on my blog to follow my journey.
