Armed with her own camera and a keen photographic eye, Hill invites readers to join her as she takes center stage for the matinee performance of

How I begin most of my days. I'm not much of a morning person so it takes me a few moments to adjust to the light...AND THEN I'M AWESOME.

I'm getting better at putting on my stage make-up.
