Miscellany Monday

How did this happen?
Spring break has come and gone in the blink of an eye and Monday has arrived.
Time to get back in the groove and time to link up with Carissa.
Write random and link up.

I miss Chicago and my lovely bff,
but I think one of my top favorite things from this trip was meeting these kiddos.
While I was in Chicago, Shelby and I volunteered with an organization called Off the Street Club.
Please watch this video...it will give you just a very small glipmse of what Off the Street Club is all about.
This organization only made me want to live in Chicago even more.
Being a part of the these children's lives, even for just one night, was absolutely amazing.
They overcome so much more than I have ever, in 26 years, had to experience.
They deserve to be children, and through Off the Street Club, they are given that opportunity.

There are ways that you can help.
Go here and find out what you can do.

Look who got her new planner!?!?

This did, kind of, make going back to school a little bit more exciting!
And it came with some free gift tags.
How awesomeeee is that!?!

This week's task:
Do something that is unique to where you live.
 
I went hiking at Red Mountain Park.
Red Mountain Park is a 1,200 acre former iron ore mining mountain located in Birmingham.  This park has just recently opened up it's first phase to the public and I was excited to check it out.
{Via}
 
Like major parks across America, including New York’s Central Park and Golden Gate Park in SanFrancisco, Red Mountain Park will be a long-term work in progress. It will be developed over a lengthy period, with plans adapted to changing conditions and public demand.
 
Unfortunately, I didn't get many pics...except the one above of Coral mud bathing, but it was a lot of fun and I will def go back!!
 
Happy Monday lovelies.
XoXo
