I had an amazing opportunity today. I face painted with my dear friend, Kelsey, at the first annual We Belong Family Festival put on by the Center for Learning Unlimited. It was so much fun! There was a really good turn out. Kelsey and I painted about 50 faces between the two of us. All of the kids loved their face paint, I made friends with a precocious 10 year-old girl, I spent time with my very dear friend, and most importantly, I got to help out a great cause. It made me feel really good to be able to do something that put so many smiles on so many faces. I also got a couple of other job opportunities with another non profit group. It’s been way too long since I’ve volunteered. I’ve forgotten how good it feels to be able to give back like this. I hope Kelsey and I get to work together on more volunteer work.
I almost forgot the best part!! During our down time between faces, I painted Groot, a blue and purple unicorn vomiting a rainbow, and a fish on my arm. It was so much fun!
