~sadly, a friend of mine just miscarried not too long ago. october is pregnancy & infant loss awareness month, and october 15th specifically is pregnancy & infant loss remembrance day. please think of her & the many other families out there having to cope with this loss. i am a volunteer photographer for now i lay me down to sleep. (on a small hiatus because i didn't want to show up with a pregnant belly & now i'd be too emotional during the sessions, but i do hope to find the strength to participate again) you can always donate to them as well.
on saturday, october 17th: Walk to Remember, 9am at the Outdoor Amphitheater at St. Timothy's Catholic Community, 1730 W. Guadalupe Rd, Mesa, AZ; 1 mile walk with ceremony following; more info here
~walk for autism is november 1st at tempe town lake. you can donate to my friend melissa jill's page here.
so many things to be a part of & support. i know it's hard to donate, especially in times like these but it always makes me feel good to put $25 towards something like this instead of an impulse buy of something i don't really need!
hope you have a great weekend! we are joining our ultimate friends on saturday at the tour de fat parade & party at tempe town lake. it starts at 9 am- bring your bikes & wear something outerageous!!! it's going to be a blast.
