Ellen Degeneres holds a special place in my television heart. My creepy love for Ellen began when I was on maternity leave with Tallon last year, November through January. When that 4 o’clock “Let’s have a little fun today” tune came on tv, it gave me that last bit of energy I needed to make it through the long, tiring day. Of course I loved being a new mommy, but honestly, I felt very overwhelmed and stressed for 99% percent of the day. Today is my official Ellen day.
