EIF Revlon Run/Walk

currently crushing, revlon run walkHappy Mother’s Day!  I’m heading out to a family brunch this morning but wanted to share pictures of yesterday’s Revlon Run/Walk for Women.  This was my first time joining in on this important event and I was honored to be walking as part of “Team Melissa” with our friends who lost their beautiful daughter Melissa to ovarian cancer in her early 20’s.  We had a fun group of 47 friends (including the group that I went to Puerto Vallarta with earlier this year) and rode together in a chartered school bus…
