Yes, I have been missing in action for almost a week now and with good reason. I have been a busy, busy beaver! Last Wednesday I left for Asheville, N.C. with a group of my gal pals to attend the Type-A Mom blogging conference. We hit the road in a car sponsored by Toyota - the Venza and had a comfortable ride all the way to Asheville. At the conference I was both a speaker and an attendee. I had a chance to catch up with my blogging friends and relax. Unfortunately, I had a camera fail so check out Mischi's flikr stream to see some great photos of the event.
I am writing this post while flying to Los Angeles for a blogging event. So, no photos - I am barely getting this post up!
More updates- yesterday I had the distinct pleasure of touring the Aflac Children's Cancer and Blood Disease Center at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Earlier this month I was asked to be an advocate for this cause and with my background in health and my interest in making a difference in the lives of others I had to say yes. My tour yesterday was one of many events that I will attend to help raise awareness about this cause. I want to devote a full blog post to this issue so I will do that when I return to Atlanta. In the meantime, I want to bring something to your attention that costs nothing but will make a difference.
Aflac has a cause page on facebook and for every person that joins Aflac will donate a dollar to the Children's Cancer and Blood Disease Center. If you choose to also give a monetary donation, Aflac will match that too! At the very least please join the cause page - we have until October 2nd to reach $1 Million and we are almost there. Also, please spread the word!
