Strolling Down Worth Ave

Well guys, I'm here. After many heartbreaks, tears, lots of laughter, some I-can't-believe-that-just-happened moments, and countless Why me?'s, I finally made it to Worth Avenue. Knowing your worth. It's a phrase we hear often, especially across social media. But when you think about it, what does it really mean to know your worth?

Grand slams. No-hitters. Walk-offs. Beer showers. This year's opening weekend in college baseball had it all - and it was awesome. On Friday I made a quick trip home from West Palm Beach (where I'm currently working for the Houston Astros *pinches myself*) to return to my alma mater to see the Alabama baseball team in action, and to see the start of the Greg Goff era. It was an awesome weekend at the J[...]

I noticed straight away how similar we were: both southern, both blondes, both attending SEC universities, and both come from good families. Then I read it. The most striking similarity of all.
