Having Fun While Helping Others

My friend Brit and I decided to strap on our stilettos and help out one of our favorite causes–education.  We attended Communities in School of Greater Tarrant County second annual Wine Women and Shoes. There was food, shoes, silent auctions, jewelry, fashions and  wine. It was a fun night helping to fund mentoring for students in Tarrant County, and empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Take a look at some sites at this amazing fun event.

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.
