The following post comes from the winner of one of our BlogWorld contests. We asked booth-goers to meet a stranger, learn about that person, and blog about them. While we don't currently have plans to serve Fargo, ND, we're happy to learn about it.

Our journey to become a family of three began in 2004. My husband, Matt, and I both work for Southwest.

We had talked about adopting a child if we could not have children, and knew right away in our hearts that our daughter was waiting in a... read more
I took a week off, but we're back with SWA Stew 26. I could give you a thousand reasons why we skipped, but I won't waste your time, loyal fans. I'm sorry for making you wait. All... two of you. This week, the SWA Stew kicked off with a great post about a trio of Flight Attendants who ran across the Philadelphia Marathon to reach their ride to the airport. ... read more
