I feel good

Not great, but good.

On November 20th, a friend of mine, Connie Roth, passed away from a car accident that she an her three children were in 2 weeks previous. She and her husband were originally friends with my parents, but over the year of my pre-mommy career (pro photographer), I became very close to Connie as I photographed her three children.

This morning, there was a breakfast benefit and silent auction for Connie's family, to help with the medical bills from her two week fight in the hospital. I was able to donate a Ruffle Scarf, and four Fashionista Scarves to the silent auction.

A friend of mine, whom I know only through the Internet (but am quite close to), Katie, donated some children's aprons from her shop Katie's Sew Crafty.

I wasn't able to stay at the breakfast long, but was happy to see that my scarves, as well as the aprons, were bringing in bids. I don't know what the final bids were, but can safely say that I feel that I've helped Connie's family. I hope Katie knows how much her donation meant to me personally, as well as what it will mean for the family.
