Diabetes is an issue that is near and dear to my heart. In fact, the American Diabetes Association is an organization I donate to on a monthly basis. So, when Amanda shared that she was fundraising to participate in the 2013 Jump to Cure Diabetes by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (a worldwide leader in diabetes research) in Sydney, I jumped (teehee) at the chance to help her raise awareness and money for the cause. In order for her to do the skydive on March 2, she needs to raise $1,000, all of which will go directly to JDRF for Type 1 Diabetes research. It would mean a lot to both Amanda and me if you could contribute to her cause! Every little bit helps.

Mandy hits the nail on the head when she talks about how she doesn’t actually want that Target gift card. I’m planning a giveaway soon (sneak peek!) and I’m learning what not to do by what some others are doing with their giveaways!
I really, truly love this post about the lesson in self-image and positivity Liz learned on her first date. Makes me think back to my first date with G and whether or not he even noticed what I was nervous about.
With today’s technologically connected (and very busy!) world, Kathleen wonders if not online dating, how do you meet people?
