Happy Valentines Day

Originally Damien and I had planned on staying in tonight for Valentines Day... but then I won tickets to a charity event hosted at a little restaurant in Roseville called Basic.  The fundraiser was for an organization called "Me-One Foundation"-- and it was such a touching evening.  We had a great time, but were so inspired by the people we met.  Many of those in attendance were people affected by cancer, who have been helped by this foundation... They had a simple message... live in the moment.  We are blessed daily by everything and everyone... and this organization seeks to teach people that even cancer can be a blessing- which is amazing to hear out of the mouth of someone with stage IV cancer.  

The Me-One Foundation seeks to help ADULTS that are fighting cancer... the event tonight was to help fund a camp they put on every summer for the families that are affected by the adult in their life who has cancer.  Please take a minute to read about this foundation... and if you can help them out, do so.  If you live in the area, I know they have other fundraisers, to maybe check them out. 

So on this Valentines Day, please remember to be thankful for the blessings in your life... no matter what you have going on in your life right now, there are always blessings, and I encourage you to stop and think about them and be thankful.  

Love you all my blogger family...
