Diva on a Dime/ Mrs. Magnolia does the Pageant Scene

At the encouragement of one of my dear friends in Jackson who works with the Mississippi Arts Commission, saying that she thought that it would broaden my audience for my message, I decided to enter the 2012 Mrs. Mississippi Pageant.
At first , I thought it was a ridiculous idea because most of the girls who competed were half my age and very experienced in pageants. Most had been participating in pageants for years. I on the other had had only ever participated in one other pageant...and that was when I was 16 years old !!! LOL!! Although I didn't place, I had a wonderful time, met a lot of new friends and as my Jackson friend had suggested it did expose my platform to a new, larger audience.
