it has been a couple weeks because i was having trouble with blogger. i reset my format settings so i think we are all good now. it was one of my soul sister's 40th birthday so we had to celebrate and capture this moment. jenny asked me to make her a crown so there it is in all its glory. then i framed the picture of the dinner out together we just had a couple nites before. it created quite the moment--since she is moving away. we wiped our tears and tore up the dance floor with a little bit of salsa-ing. tammie and i are heart broken but very excited for what is ahead for this amazing woman.
Saturday May 21 was quite the day. i had been half dredding it(only because it was a lot of planning, coordinating kids etc) and totally looking forward to it for a long time now. the anticipation i had in surprising my sweet katie with our Autism Walk t-shirts was HUGE. she was thrilled with it, as was the online company i ordered thru. they were so "impressed with my design and message" that they overnite shipped it to me (on them of course) so i could have them as soon as possible. katie and i were so SO proud to wear our shirts and attend this great event in the autism community.
the morning of the walk was also the annual 5K/10K race held right here at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital. so i had to squeeze it in. this is my 3rd time at the event, the past two years i did the 10K. its a fun challenge and very cool to do something good for yourself with people who enjoy it too.
