For Ellie

So, I have some pretty cool news. There's a ginormous fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation coming up in my city and I've been asked to speak at it on behalf of my niece, Miss Ellie.

I am so nervous. There's going to be like 650 people there! And I have to talk!

But only for 5-7 minutes, thank goodness.

I also cut down my total allotted time by putting together a little video to show about Ellie. It's almost 5 minutes, so now I only have to talk for 2, tops.  I can do this, I can do this, serenity now, serenity now...

I've eaten, breathed and slept this thing over the past few days, so please take a look.

(In case it isn't obvious, I love that little girl.)



And if you have nothing else to do this lovely holiday weekend, please vote for me at Circle of Moms. I'm in 25th place...so close, yet so far away. Thanks!

That is my worst nightmare! I kissed my little ones an extra time and squeezed them a little tighter in their good night hugs. Good luck speaking! The video is so touching. Good job and good luck!
