Marching for Babies

On Saturday, G and I will be participating in the March of Dimes March for Babies. I've been reading a lot about it over on Beth's blog, I Should Be Folding Laundry. And I have decided to walk for Team James and Jake.

I was turned on to Beth's blog through You Capture, a weekly photo 'assignment' that has really helped me get out of the house and do something creative and constructive - rather than stew over being unemployed. I've been reading her regularly and am very inspired, amused, and often touched by her openness. She talks about such a painful subject with such raw, beautiful emotion - I'm sure her candid words have helped many people struggling with the loss of a child.

Yesterday, Beth launched an Esty Shop with some of her beautiful photographs. Through April 30, all proceeds go to Team James and Jake. Check it out - you won't be sorry!

By the way, if you feel so inclined to sponsor me, please click on my March of Dimes button on the sidebar - it will take you to the donation site. If you prefer, you can also sponsor Beth directly, she is trying to raise $5000. She's almost there! You can find a link to her page here.
