While down in Florida, I had the honor of meeting Hoda Kotb. Hoda is the co-host (with Kathy Lee Gifford) on the Today Show weekday mornings.
I enjoy her on tv....but, watching her as the Grand Marshall of the Susan G. Komen walk in West Palm Beach made me into a huge fan. She is spirited and gracious with a true positive energy about her. She doesn't act like the celebrity that she is and certainly doesn't put on any "airs". What a delightful lady!
And, if meeting Hoda wasn't enough for this "star-struck" Grammie, I also "bumped" into Donald Trump. (I'm quite the name dropper, aren't I?) My sister took me to a meeting that was being held in Mar-A-Lago-- which is Donald Trump's home in West Palm Beach. What I saw of it was absolutely beautiful....especially the grounds. Below is a picture that I took as we drove up the driveway to his home.
As we were walking to the meeting room, there he was coming right towards us. I shook his hand and told him how handsome he was in person (which he actually was)! I would have loved to have had a photo taken with him....but, with all of his "people" standing nearby...it just didn't seem appropriate at the time. But, it was still exciting seeing "The Donald" in person!
