Color is fascinating on so many levels. The colors we are drawn to can provide insight into our emotions, our moods, our health, our well-being, our energy.
What colors are you drawn to this season?
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Mamas out there.
The ripple effects of your efforts are endless…
The sky could not have been bluer on the day of Westfield High School’s Lacrosse team fundraiser. This year Westfield High was playing Madison High and we were raising money for JDRF. This hit very close to home since three players on our team have juvenile diabetes. The day was filled with 50/50′s, raffles, food, games and fun! We had an awesome showing and to top off the day we had an amazing win!
I interviewed Kim Decker of Westfield, NJ whose son Patrick Decker has Juvenile Diabetes. Patrick happens to be the best friend of my son Jake and I witness what his day-to-day life is like with diabetes. Here is a bit of Patrick’s story below…
Patrick was diagnosed 6 years ago in the 5th grade on April 30, 2006. All of our lives changed from that moment. In the beginning it was very difficult to regulate; he needed one unit of insulin for every 15 grams of carbs. There was so much trial and error and Patrick needed to take insulin shots every time that he ate.
There are many things to love about Seattle in the month of May. The birds are chirping, the gardens are blooming, and the days are getting longer and lighter. May is also the time of year that Beat the Bridge happens. What’s Beat the Bridge, you wonder? It’s a fundraiser/race put on by Nordstrom, which raises awareness and funding for JDRF.

Last year, KUT from the Kloth hosted a booth at the finish line. At the end of the race, families, runners, walkers and cheering fans came by our booth to take some LIVELY group photos. Not only was it REALLY FUN, I loved getting to share the story of WHY we were there in the first place.
