Hello Liberty Fans,

I just want to start off by saying that I have never been so happy to be back in New York! That four game road trip on the west coast was a killer. But I also have to say I think that I learned a lot and grew as a player as well on that trip. I am starting to understand my role here as a point guard for the Liberty and it seems to get better and better as each game comes along. I am just excited to see myself develop in this league. It's really going to be a lot of fun. Our team is starting to come together a lot more too. I think we have a good chance to shock a lot of people down the line in the season...but ya'll will have to watch and see how we end up turning out!

As tough as the trip was, I have to say I really enjoyed being in Seattle. It was beautiful and had a lot of stores to go shopping, so that was great. The weather was really great when we were down there. We didn't quite come out with the victory, but it still was a good place to be because as a team we learned a lot about ourselves.

I really had fun seeing my old Tennessee teammates on this trip - Ashley Robinson and Kara Lawson. It's always fun being able to catch up with them and hangout . But most importantly I got my mom to come down to Sacramento to watch me play, so that was really great. I really did enjoy the trip, but like I said earlier, it was just time to come back home!

Until next time - Be easy and God Bless!
