A YEAR in the Bay!

March 1st marks ONE year in Green Bay for me and Matt! We have experienced more in this past year than I could ever put into proper words. Our first year of marriage, life in a new city with new jobs, new Church, new friends, new everything! A few favorites from this past year are our trip to Chicago (first Cubs game), our numerous visits to Door County, Green Bay Packer tailgates and our most recent trip to Milwaukee to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We are the best of friends, just enjoying this season of our lives and longing for home at the same time. Here's to a year in the Bay!

Haven goes RED!

Below are just a few pictures of Haven going RED yesterday, February 5, 2010! We have been raising money all week for the American Heart Association and Go Red For Women, their cause with the goal to raise awareness that Heart Disease is the #1 threat to women. A fact most women still do not realize. This is a cause dear to me for two was just a year ago this month that I left the American Heart Association, to move to Green Bay after almost six years of working there as a Corporate Market Director. I have so many fond memories of my time with the AHA and I am proud to have been a part of a great organization.
Participating in Wear Red Day was like coming full circle. I used to encourage companies to participate, now I am one of those participating companies! The other reason this cause is dear to me is because of sweet Kaela (the last picture is of she and I at Haven's Annual Holiday Ball last weekend). Kaela is this amazing girl I work with at Haven. Kaela suffered a stroke last year and just last fall had surgery to repair a hole in here heart. She is not even 21 years old! She is now a local spokesperson for the AHA, sharing her story and rallying for the cause of Go Red For Women! She is precious. GO RED FOR WOMEN!
