An Open Love Letter to the Humans of Billings/ Laurel
Dear Humans of Billings,
The last 6 months has been taxing to say the least. My move to Magic City started off rocky, but nothing like a bump in the road to teach some life lessons. With my family being so far away from me, my soul has been lonely. But that's changed as of recently.
With any career choice comes trials and tribulations. Being a radio personality can be a lonely place, too. You never know who is your friend and who is your foe in this industry. I wanted to extend my gratitude for the lovely people that have made my experience here in Billings so wonderful.
The Foth Family of Billings/ Laurel:
My co-host Michael Foth and his family have been nothing but welcoming to me as I spent both Christmas and Thanksgiving with them instead of going back home. Billings is my new home..and today proved that. The Foth Family gifted me an entire tray of Valentine's Day love. Stacy, Michaels wife- thank you for putting so much time and effort into this truly wonderful gift. My heart is so thankful for you guys. Chosen family right here.
To the owners and friends at Candy Town USA Billings:
Thank you for being so stellar at making candy and for your true kindness. I was supposed to head over to the big grand re-opening for Valentine's Day, but received a message that there is electrical issues needing fixed before they re-open in Shiloh Crossing. The new location opens in March.
I thought for sure I wouldn't get the giant, smash chocolate heart... but no! Not the snow, nor the electrical issues stopped the candy elves from doing what they love doing. A beautiful woman named Kristy delivered this huge smashable chocolate heart loaded with goodies inside, to our studios today on Valentine's Day.
My inner child is having a party and I know my taste buds will too. These candy experts are very kind humans. Thank you so much.
Thank you to my love, and forever Valentine- Joe.
Thank you for hand delivering flowers and a handmade vase with a card to me while on-air atop the Double Tree in downtown Billings. The fact you took time to drive in the snow, park the car, head up 23 floors and all with a smile on your face- you are a gem and I plan on spending the rest of this life with you by my side. Thank you for supporting me to follow my dreams of becoming a morning show personality in Magic City.
To the lovely listeners/ guests of the Mix 97.1 Morning Show, and the people I've met along the way:
You guys are why I do this job. Thank you for showing me the way around Billings, and for having fun with the us daily. Thank you for tuning in time to time and playing our silly games with on Mix 97.1. Thank you to all our guests on the Morning Mix, thank you Billings for being YOU!
The pathway to peace is through hardship. My mama taught me that.
Much love Billings Fam. LOVE and gratitude truly does conquer all.
