This past weekend I got the opportunity to help pack 1.2 million hurricane kits for those in need with Feeding Children Everywhere.It was one of the most beautiful and rewarding experiences it was a great reminder of how it feels to participate in acts of kindness and remind ourselves that we should be grateful everyday for what we have. My friend Bethany Neal called me on Wednesday the 13th and asked me if I wanted to volunteer with the non profit organization in Atlanta for the weekend. It was last minute but it felt so good and it was such an amazing opportunity so the only logical answer was SIGN ME UP! 🙂 Continue reading Feeding Children Everywhere.

The other day I set out for another South Florida sea adventure with one of my best friends Julia Gordon. Man was it an underwater kaleidoscope! We dove with The scuba club. We sat at the front of the boat talking about other diver adventures we had been on and what we hoped to see! We had smiles on our face from ear to ear, both of us are water babes so the excitement to just get in the water and drop to the bottom was making our hearts thump faster and smiles get even bigger.
