Yesterday I may have blown up Your newsfeed because I figured out how to work the live button on Facebook! And there was no better day to play with it then at paddle for Plummer!!!!!!!
Where do we begin! Three years ago my girl Ashley Steeves dropped my name at the Plummer Home and I was lucky enough to have the Plummer home trust me in joining their team.
Each and every year this event just gets better and better! Thank you for making me feel like a movie star that gets to write and reflect on how many people there are to thank because there is just so many fantastic people and places that I don’t want to miss a thing!!!
First to the Plummer Home for allowing and honoring me with the task of creating this event. This particular charity just is so near and dear to my heart and paddling with and for kids is just the best feeling ever. To Caroline Laramie, my friend and fellow diva stoker, you’re just striaght bad ass! Thank you for connecting us to Melanine Mckinin!
