That time I met Ellen (and other things I crossed off my bucket list)

There is no coincidence that I’m posting this today. One year ago today, I was gifted with the most amazing experience, to meet Ellen DeGeneres. She has kept me laughing over the past few years, on good days and bad, that when I put my bucket list together I knew I needed to meet her. Thanks to two amazing women, they made it possible for me to meet her and have a few minutes to chat with her too! The best part was that during the show, she mentioned meeting me. I couldn’t believe it! That evening was truly incredible.
