Hello friends! This peppy message is coming to you from sunny and beautiful Memphis! 🙂 We had a weekend of gorgeous weather and it is continuing on today. And this girl loves her some sunshine. So it has been a pretty fabulous weekend. Add on top of the weather that I spent Saturday at the MidSouth Girls’ Conference with the teens I mentor and BOOM! Even better.
Wait, what’s this? Rach, you’re volunteering with teens again? I thought you graduated your girls out and were re-evaluating and looking at other volunteer options. Oh yes, I was. And we have gotten involved with a couple of different organizations doing different things (more on our other volunteer work in another post). But somehow teenagers still just seem to suck us in. Ha! Christopher and I are working with a different group now and it has been much easier to balance building relationships with them AND still taking time for just us. Instead of the 3-4 nights a week that we were spending with teens before, it’s only one night a week with occasional special circumstances (like this past weekend). Plus we’re still the new people so the kids still think we’re awesome (for now). 😉
In other news, we also spent time with our dear friends JAMES and Heather this weekend. I specify this because James reads my blog and was complaining yesterday that I don’t feature him on it often enough.
Christopher and James being adorable together. #bros
James, I hope you feel acknowledged now. 😉
Do any of your friends tease you about not being featured on your blog often enough?
Have you ever found yourself being drawn to the same type of volunteer opportunities over and over even when you thought you were totally done with it?
