Kelly Takes On: The Open Highway

Get your motor runnin’ Head out on the highway Lookin’ for adventure And whatever comes our way… If my day had a theme song, this would be it.  These were the words that were playing over and over in my head. For an hour, I felt free…I felt alive…I felt like I was “Born to…

Kelly Takes On: My Childhood Dream

My happy bubble of self-denial… There are times I realize that I blissfully live in a state of denial about myself.  For one, I think I’m a good singer; however, the funny looks I get from friends and family any time I belt out a few notes quickly reminds me that I’m really not. Another…
