Absolutely amazing news.

How could I not feel like the luckiest girl in the world right now? Honestly. I am so blessed. I swear I'm still living on cloud 9 knowing Dan will be home in two short weeks and then today I received a very special delivery!

The baby home that I'll be volunteering at in Thailand is in desperate need of diapers, formula and all necessities for babies so in order to do all that I can, I thought I'd fundraise! I sent out an e-mail last week to all of my family and friends telling them about my trip and my fundraising initiatives by holding a bottle drive. I have received change and bottles from many people throughout the past week and I am so gracious!

Amongst the people I e-mailed, were Mark and Doreen, business partners of my dad. Doreen responded to me upon receiving my e-mail telling me they had ten garbage bags full of recycling and Mark would bring them to me at work! I was elated - ten garbage bags?! That's amazing. Well, friends, look at what Mark dropped off today.

Seriously. They rock. Having their support and the support from everyone who throws some change my way, or the odd bottle, will really make a difference. I am so appreciative of their support and so lucky to have such wonderful, generous people in my life.
Thank you to Mark and Doreen, and everyone who donates for helping me in my dream.
