A little of this and a little of that in 2012

Posted in Update with tags , , , on November 8, 2012 by Your SkinChick

Hey there!! it’s your skinchick!  I have been away for some time.  As you guessed it, blogging is not my #1 priority.  I live a very busy life as most and I just have not been diligent about coming here often.  Maybe in the near future but for now, I do what I can.  I had an AMazing summer.  We spent most of it traveling, thanks to my job.

In July we spent the summer in NY for the birth of our new niece – Sophia.  I’m holding her.

August we went to Lake Tahoe.  We vacationed with friends and it was a BLAST!!

We hiked Mt. Tallac and it was HARD!!!

and then I started training for the “Ultimate hike” (26 miles of the PCT in one day).   That was so much fun and luckily I was able to work alongside the hike training. The picture below was taken the day after the hike on Oct 28th.  An experience to last a life time.

Yes! I did it again. We hiked 26 miles for Children’s Cancer Research to raise awareness and money for the cause.

Why you might ask? well, I am so blessed with 3 beautiful healthy children and as a parent I know I could not bare to lose one of my own.  My heart tells me this is what I must do.  Be a voice for the children.  Helping children’s cancer research so that the children of the future can have a fighting chance.

Anyone coming across this page can join us in this fight against pediatric cancer. Check out the link below and donate what you can :-).  97% of the money raised goes to the cause.  NOW that is AWESOME!
