I've Been Busy...

Hopefully some people are still checking on my blog occasionally, even though I have not posted for a while. I'm finally settling into summer, my internship, and various other commitments.
I went home to Mineral Point, Wisc. this past weekend for my sister's wedding. A lot of family I haven't seen since Christmas to they all told me how they liked my article and saw me on the Today Show. It was nice to know I had all these people behind me, and guilty because I have let my blog languish for so long.
I'm so comfortable around my family that I forget my height. So it was weird when, at my sister's wedding reception, a man came up to me from the bar to ask how tall I was. It was one of those where all he wants to know is my height. "Those guys wanted to know." Okay, well now you know. It was a great reception, and we danced for hours. As the maid of honor I made a speech. It was the first wedding I've ever been in, and since it was my only sister getting married it was all the more special. And nobody minded that I was taller than the bride, even standing a step below her. :)

You should just buy a button that you can pin to your shirt that says "I am 6'4" tall."

Just found your blog and love what are you doing in spreading your story. I'm 6'11 myself, but as a man its easier.

I just started a social network for real people facing tall issues called "The Tall Street Journal".

I'd love if you would join us over there and let everyone know about your blog too. I just posted a blog myself about your Today Show video.

Now, hopefully you won't have to feel as just one voice, as its my mission to gather lots of our voices to share our stories and vision of the world from high.
