The Make-A-Wish Wing Thing

Back in July, with the help of many friends, we hosted a fundraiser for Make-A-Wish. Doug runs on their Chicago Marathon team and in effort to raise more funds we had what came to be called, A Wing Thing.

One the menu, Doug's awesome Smoked Wings, Moveable Feast Potato Salad, Watermelon and Homemade Cookies. Family, friends and anyone who wanted to join us feasted, chatted and enjoyed great live music. All in all it was a wonderful, if simple, event and we were so touched by the incredible outpouring of support.

Today we once again, get to support this wonderful charity by providing dinner and breakfast as a part of a private Bunking with the Butterflies at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. It's a great opportunity for our family to realize how lucky we are to be healthy.

When someone is in need my thoughts always turn to food. A new baby, sickness, overwhelming life stuff or the passing of a loved one, I always want to feed people. I am so grateful that I can play a tiny role in supporting another family in a difficult time. I couldn't be more blessed.
