Saturday was the annual Angel Babies walk, which raises funds funds to help families whose unborn child has been diagnosed with a terminal condition or experienced miscarriage, stillbirth or other infant death. Angel Babies has wonderful counselors who provided care to our family seven years ago.
It was a little chilly before we got started
After the walk is over, the kids participate in a little "fun run" and they each get a "gold medal."
This year it was at the campus of Fresno State University, and on one of the sidewalks there was this cool imprint of a leaf.
So Mark and I have been saving up to celebrate a major wedding anniversary next year.I had never really paid attention before, but $1 bills each have a letter of the alphabet on the left side of George Washington's face. Go ahead. I'll wait while you look at the dollar bills in your wallet....
...alrighty then. I read somewhere that an easy way to save a little extra cash in a painless way is to choose a letter with a connection to what you are saving for. We plan on going to Hawaii and I'm saving for a nice dinner. So I thought "H" for Hawaii was the obvious choice. Here's the kicker: each letter comes from a different federal reserve bank across the nation. "H" is located in St. Louis--we don't get a lot of "H's" here in Fresno. So the next logical choice was "F" for forty. "F" is from Atlanta and we a surprising amount of "F's". What I should have chosen was "L" for love. "L" comes from San Francisco. Lots of "L's" go in and out of my wallet, but if that's the letter I was saving, I also wouldn't have any money left in my wallet. So F it is. With a year to go, I already have $120!
