Where does time go? I swear last week leading up to Sunday has been a blur. In between workouts, our last session of STARS & CHAMPS, moving, speaking at the Direct Employers Annual meeting, preparing for the upcoming Scholar Athlete dinner (more info at and trying to get some quality family time in, things have been a LOT of crazy. : )

Grand Finale of our 2015 Spring session of STARS & CHAMPS at Washington High School

But, through all of that, today marked my first day of year 15 in the WNBA with the Indiana Fever. That old saying "time flies when you're having fun" is true when I think of how blessed I've been to be in Indy over the course of my career. Simply amazing!

We started off with a team meeting at 9:00 am and then rolled into the first of a 2 a day practice. It's awesome to feel the positive energy floating around the room and everyone so excited to be here and ready to go. A lot of that is a testament to Steph, the staff and the organization- all of which is first class. Funny thing today was walking into the gym and realizing that 15 years ago I had walked into the practice court as a rookie with Steph by my side as a teammate and now she's my head coach LOL. This is going to be fun!!! Hahaha

In between practices, I had to go celebrate Kolton's 5th birthday and have some cake. It's always funny walking into the house and him grabbing for his toy instead of giving hugs LOL. I guess I may have been like that too growing up; )

Happy 5th Koltie Kolt's

I felt like both practices went well, and we got a lot accomplished for the first day. I'm already excited for day two and seeing how everyone comes back from the body shock of day 1 LOL. Well, stay tuned I don't know if I'll write everyday, but I'll try to stay connected. Until next time...

Best wishes and God Bless!
