Pass It Forward

I am so so super excited to be part of this new project, Pass it Forward brought to us by Ashley of The Shine Project!

Pass It Forward was designed to get people to do little things, everyday, that makes an impact on the community around them. Pass it Forward is designed around a card. Each card is given a unique ID number. Lets say we’re at McDonalds, and I decide to pay for the person behind me in the drive through. I’d give the cashier the card, and tell them to pass it along to the next car when the give them the food that has been paid for. I then go home and log into the website that was on the card, and find my unique ID number. I log into it, and add my information… My first name, city, and a description of what I did….Let’s say the person behind me was you, you would pass it forward to someone else, and then would go home and do the same thing. From the very beginning, you will be able to track where your card goes, and how many people you affect just by doing one simple act of kindness.

I think this project is so great and will have the potential to really impact people’s lives. Everyone gets so involved in what they personally have going on that we often forget about other people who might be going through something that is bigger than anything we have ever had to deal with and maybe, just maybe paying for their gas or groceries or even just a coffee will be the thing that let’s them know they are not forgotten or alone. That might be the very thing that gets them through that tough time.

Thank you Ashley for letting me be part of the launch of this project!!


Aloha Friday =)


It’s Aloha Friday, don’t forget to head over to and check it out for yourself!

So my question for you on this Aloha Friday is, When was the last time you played in the rain?

It has been raining here in Phoenix since yesterday afternoon, which if you know anything about Phoenix, you know that is a rarity! My daughter loves the rain, I don’t know why or how she came to this love of rain, but she does. So yesterday afternoon my husband took her for a walk in the rain, this morning I am going to head out with her and let her splash around in the puddles and hopefully get a few pictures. As for me, the last time I played in the rain, I was in my early 20’s…yeah let’s not get into exactly how long ago that was! So for my fellow Phoenician’s get outside and play in the rain, goodness knows we won’t see anymore rain for a couple of months probably…and as for everyone else, get out and act like a kid again the next time it rains in your neck of the woods, you’ll thank me!
