#1. Blog everyday, with atleast 1 photograph, for 2 weeks
Yay! I've blogged everyday since June 10th! When I started my blog I didn't imagine that I could come up with something worthwhile to say a couple of times a week let alone every day. However, these past two weeks has stretched me and helped me think outside the box. I feel pretty good to be able to check this one off my list! Hopefully this experience will help keep my blog interesting and consistent (even if its not every day).

Instead of a Unity Candle, Gabe & Tara chose to have a Sand Ceremony.
Tara's sisters served as her maids of honor.
Tara & Gabe live about an hour and half away from the wedding location. They rented a charter bus to bring all of their friends to the center for the wedding! After the reception Gabe & Tara rode back on the bus with all of their friends!
Gabe & Tara, thank you for letting me be a part of your special day! Congrats again!

I spent the entire day with my friend, Bridget! I got to sleep in a little because it was a Sunday and then I went to her house around 10:30. We started with some wedding talk (she's getting married in October) and I got to see some of the adorable things she's already picked out for her big day!
Next it was time to get the pool out of the box and set it up. It wasn't as bad as we thought. Once the pool was out of the box and a few things were done it was time to add the water!
We left the water to fill up the pool while we took Stephen, Bridget's fiance, lunch and went to town to run a few errands. We stopped by her grandparents and had lunch! It was like we were in high school again, raiding her Granny's fridge! :) We spent a few minutes chatting with her grandparents then we were off to the Dollar General for another pool float! We got worried because we had been away from her house for quite a while so we hurried back to check on the running water.
When we got back to her house, the pool wasn't even 1/2 way full. Did I mentioned that it was like 100 degrees?? So... we set off to Stephen's shop to check out the chickens that I gave him after my Easter Sessions. If you don't remember my Easter Sessions, I had baby chickens and two rabbits. Stephen was kind enough to take the baby chicks. Click here to see them during our Easter sessions. I had three in all- a white one, a black one, and a yellow one. Take a look at them now...
Ok, well they wouldn't come out of hiding when we were around, this was the best photo we could get. Bridget gets on me that I started something because now they currently have many more! We transferred these babies into a different holding area. Just call us the chicken ladies!
After getting the chickens fed and watered we went back to the house to check on the pool. Even though it wasn't nearly full we got in anyway because it was so darn hot outside!
Even when the smoke came rolling in we weren't ready to go inside just yet!
Our friend, Krys, and Bridget's sister came to join us too!
I don't think I made it home until 11 pm. It was a great day with a great friend! Love ya Bridge!

You can help by teaming with us and becoming a Sponsor or a Donor. An August 1st deadline is imposed for Sponsorships. If you decide to join in playing golf, understand there is a September 1st deadline for reservations. Tickets will be mailed one week before the event. Please don’t delay!
If sponsorship isn’t something you’re up for, please consider making a donation. For your contribution, you and/or your company will be promoted in all publications and verbally announced during the banquet ceremony.
Here are two images of two very dear friends of mine that would benefit from your help...
1. Meet Stephanie, she's the one in the middle of the photograph. This woman is full of spunk and is great to be around. She always knows how you make you laugh! Stephanie is a quadriplegic and is the main person behind this event. She pours her heart and soul into it for months before and months after the actual event! She amazes me with everything she does! Her side kick Steve is pretty great too!
#2. Meet Jason. He's my boyfriend's brother. Jason was injured about 7 years ago in a snow boarding accident and has lost feeling from his belly button down. However Jason is still able to drive and do many things people wouldn't think are possible. He is one of the most loving people I have ever known (his entire family has lots of love) and most of the time you see him he has a smile on his face. Love you J!
SCS, a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization receives no government funds; instead it relies upon its volunteer chapters who raise money through community involvement. 100% of the money donated to the SCS research fund goes to research only.
This year, SCS made additional advancements with the development of a cellular delivery system that produces neurotrophins within the transplants. Additionally, a culture of oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPC’s) has been produced. The second master combination trial begins this summer and will include these original contributions. Your contribution will help to raise the necessary dollars needed to finance this expensive medical research, allowing people who live with paralysis, realize their dream of walking again.
For more information about the event, including sponsorship packages, or how you can help send me your email and I'll be glad to send you an event brochure!
