Personal things

I thought I’d share some personal things happening even though it’s happening very fast around here.

I think with a little planning I can do it :) I just forgot to finish uploading these images and share what’s been going on.

I have been enjoying spying on the backyard work through the new tinted windows. More on the tinted window situation soon.

I attended the Women Make the Difference event this year and invited my friends to my table. The event benefits 3 programs that help with programs that assist sex-trafficking victims locally in Phoenix and international. Phoenix Dream Center, Streetlight USA and Rapha International.

I am so proud of the friends and businesses who donated to the event for the silent raffle. Thank you for doing that so much – I was told $5,000 was raised for the silent auction raffle ticket items!! Thank you for being so amazing. I hope next year to be able to present the event with even more items to raffle off! Please join me next year by buying a seat, a table, or donating an item or service. There are so many ways to help.

I feel like I’m juggling a bit, the book launch, the backyard project and my birthday party which all is finishing up around the same time. It’s a lot but I know it will get done!
