The First Blizzle Music Festival finally came and went this past weekend, and it could not have been a smoother and more perfect debut for the benefit concert.

Throughout the day on Friday, Rink #1 in Mennen Arena, slowly shifted from an ice rink to a concert venue, and a Blizzle Music Festival banner was hanging in the center of it all.

As Saturday came, instead of becoming a high stress environment, the bands and workers made everything as relaxed as I could have imagined. Actually, a game of wiffle ball broke out in the back of the rink and outside with Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers, the Pat McGee Band, Ross, Matt, and some other workers, all playing.

In fact, all of the Artists could not have made the event any more easy-going and amazing. After signing several posters and t-shirts for a raffle, and taking pictures in the press room, the show started to begin and more memories were made.

Morristown's own Emily Eddey played first, kickstarting the performance part of the event off in the right way.

After witnessing a marriage proposal from John Taglieri to his girlfriend Laureen, an acoustic number from the floor seats by the Sixers, and a heartfelt Beatles' dedication from Pat McGee to Blair; the atmosphere of the show was turned into something I never experienced.

As five hundred people made their way in and out of Mennen Sports Arena on Saturday night, everyone seemed to say the same thing: you could feel the love in the room.

Thank you so much to everyone for sharing this event with our foundation. I hope everyone was able to make some new memories.

Just one more day would be....

You always hear about people who say that a book, a song, a person, a moment.... can change their life indefinitely.

I never agreed with this. How can someone else's thoughts and memories impact a viewer or reader?? How can you believe in something so much, that you gain a new perspective on life and love?

All of this pessimism left me, after reading Mitch Albom's book, 'For One More Day.' I read the entire book in two hours, during a delay at the airport. After I finished it, I was in a daze; I went and returned the book. (There was a special return policy at this store where you could read the book and return it for half price.)

Well... As I was sitting on the plane, just a few minutes later, I realized how much that book had affected me and I was mad at myself for returning it. Nothing I had ever read or watched had made me wonder about life so much.

For One More Day is the story of a mother and a son, and a relationship that covers a lifetime and beyond. It explores the question: What would you do if you could spend one more day with a lost loved one?

It is based on a story about former baseball player, Charles 'Chick' Benetto experiences.

You can choose to believe his story or not, but if you do choose to believe that 'For One More Day' is real, I promise you WILL gain a new perspective on life.

Give Hope a Chance.

'We're All Kids & Dreamers'

As most of you know, Blair loved the actress Drew Barrymore.

They shared the same free spirit, identical looks when they were younger, a strong love for music, and they were both dreamers.

Recently, a movie called "My Date with Drew" was released. It is a story about a normal guy from New Jersey, named Brian, who wanted his dream to come true. Here is a quick synopsis of the movie:

Here's the deal. Brian has been crazy about Drew since the 2nd grade when he first saw her in E.T. So now it's 20 years later and he figured since she hasn't come knockin' on his door, he's gonna have to make the first move.


She's Drew Barrymore!

But wait, it's not as crazy as you might think. See, Brian figured he'd combine his two great passions in life - making movies and Drew Barrymore - and document his quest to meet Drew. That way he will represent the "everyman", and his quest will seem noble... instead of just desperate.

So now Brian has 30 days and $1,100 to get a date with Drew Barrymore.

Armed only with steadfast determination and an uninsured video camera, Brian will summon the powers of the "Six Degrees of Separation", figuring he must know somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody who knows Drew.

Don't worry, it's not like he's expecting a relationship or anything. He's just talking about one dinner here. Heck, the girl's gotta eat, right?

This is a movie for anyone who's ever imagined doing something they believe in. But despite the odds, Brian finds encouragement in the words of Drew Barrymore...


I HIGHLY recommend this movie! Remember, WE ARE ALL KIDS & DREAMERS AT HEART, and this movie may help people believe this again.

Plus, you will get to see what an amazing person Blair's favorite actress, Drew, really is.
