Walk for Wishes

We did the Walk for Wishes today in Celebration. This was the first year they had it there and you could tell. It was a nice day though, they brought out a Make a Wish family from the area, and honestly, I had to distract myself so I wouldn't cry. Natalie was dancing with her father at a wedding in which she was a bridesmaid. During the dance she suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm. Her father said the statistics on surviving something like that are not very good, but after 3 years of surgeries, treatment and rehab you would never know what happened to this girl. While she was going through rehab a volunteer from Make a Wish contacted the family and asked what Natalie's wish would be. She wanted to go to Hawaii. Because of the donations to Make a Wish Natalie and her family were able to take that trip. That is one of the many reasons I truly love this charity, they give families hope and something positive to look forward to. Below is a video of Natalie singing "A Dream is a Wish"
Now onto something a little more light-hearted. I have been getting called out on my Chicago accent lately. Apparently I sound like every character in the SNL skit called Bill Swerkski's Super Fans. If you have never seen this skit, shame! But here it is for all of you who haven't...

Yup, apparently that's EXACTLY what I sound like...awesome!

Hope you're having a great weekend!
