Well, it's March, so it's time for a new blog post. Things have been going really well lately. I've started taking an art class at the local community college once a week. I've never really been much of an artist, so this is a challenge for me. All of the other ladies in my class roll in their massive "art" suitcases and I just bring in 2 pencils, some paper, an eraser and a pencil sharpener. I'm obviously not a professional...yet. Ha! Another exciting thing is that I've begun to volunteer at the Cancer Council once a week. Today, I went in and organized a packet to send out to a woman who wants to put on a lunch to raise money for breast cancer. What a great thing! Also, I've been helping work on some things for upcoming Relay for Life's in the Sydney area. Cancer research is very important to me, so I'm blessed to get to help out in Australia!
In February, I went to my first Australian wedding. My friends, Kim and Jonno, got married! The wedding was outside overlooking the ocean, which was great, I just wish it hadn't of been so hot! The reception was wonderful! We had a sit down dinner for about 200 people! It was so fun to get to be part of their special day and also catch up with some many friends from around Australia who had come in for the wedding!
Overall, some great things are happening in Australia and I'm lucky to be a part of them! :-)
