Socks from car view

Yesterday, my friend Jasmine and a bunch of us went downtown to hand out socks to the homeless. Approximately a month ago, Jasmine wrote a facebook message in her community group asking for sock donations.

Quote Challenge 1/3

Ahh!!! I have been nominated to do a quote challenge! I’ve been putting it off because I am super lazy. But I do appreciate Shannon for always nominating me for awards and challenges. Sometimes, I’ll never do anything unless I am pushed.

Rules for Three-Day Quote Challenge:

  • Nominate 3 more bloggers to carry on this endeavor. (I will do this after I’ve completed the challenge)
