Relay for Life

Last night me and my roommate once again participated in Hillsboro, Oregon's Relay for Life with our church. We decided that we were pretty much the youngest participants so we signed up for 11:30pm-2am (luckily with a little break in between). We were very excited to be walking for such a great cause! However, once we started walking we realized that we were still the youngest people there (mostly) but we were dragging our feet the most, figuratively. We hustled our butt around the track and we walked almost 8 miles, but there were people 3x our age and over who were still full of energy when we were finally done and getting ready to head home. We're both a summer away from being 23 and this event made us feel not as young as people keep reminding us we are :)

Even though the event is over, it is not too late to support me in my walking for cancer. You can follow the link below to find "my" page from Relay for Life to donate. Remember, everything goes to a great cause and your help "supports the American Cancer Society in its lifesaving mission to eliminate cancer as a major health issue" (taken from RFL website).

Finally, it seems like Summer

Forest Grove has finally had a few days of nice weather and we're all hoping it will last for awhile. I was able to enjoy the weather on an amazing picnic with Marcel at the city park with the best swings, my only reason for going to parks in the first place!

Me and Marcel enjoying each other's company after a great lunch of sandwiches and chips.

We're still kids at heart enjoying swings :)

Now that it's nice, poor college students/graduates will do just about anything for some extra cash! By the way, this is not me :)

Let the Season Begin

Saturday I attended the first wedding ceremony of my summer, which was also the first one I had been to in ages. While I didn't know the bride or groom all that well, (I was Marcel's guest) the ceremony was touching. It was beautiful to see two people so in love and to be able to start a new chapter of their lives together like God has planned for them. I'm excited to be able to witness this come true for 2 more couples before the summer comes to a close.
