Wishes

This weekend was such a great one, but the highlight was attending the Make A Wish Foundation's annual Roll Out The Barrel event.

The Make A Wish Foundation makes it their mission to grant the wishes of children with serious medical conditions. Sometimes these wishes are simple childhood wishes like visiting Disneyland, and sometimes hearing about the kids who make these wishes has the ability to turn me into a ball of tears. Take Lauren from New York, well she's 4 years old and has terminal cancer. Her wish was to give back comfort and hope to other sick children. The Make A Wish Foundation donated stuffed animals that she was able to hand out to other sick children. Ya, this girl is special. 

Roll Out The Barrel was unlike anything I have ever attended....
Unlimited amounts of wine, ridiculously good food, great music, performances, presentations by Wish kids, an incredible San Diego beach venue, and so many kind people who came together to help kids that deserve so much love.

Nadav and I had the most wonderful time... such a wonderful time that we spent Sunday recovering on the couch. (Ok what can I say the wine was flowing and I thought it would be fitting for it to flow right into my wine glass).

Seems like a fantastic event! I know the foundation and kids like Lauren make me hold my breath. I mean seriously, this kid has EVERY right to have a really big wish just for herself but she wants to share hers with others! Beautiful.
