jingle bell run/walk

Every year I love walking in the Jingle Bell Run/Walk in December.  This festive morning event is all in support of the Arthritis Foundation, which is very dear to my heart – my friend Sarah has had arthritis since she was just 2 years old, and I’ve seen her deal with more than she should ever have to as she fights this battle.  Supporting her on this fun morning is the least we can do, and it is always really special to see so many people coming together for Sarah – family, friends, kiddos and co-workers come from near and far to spend the day with her!

This was Corinne’s first year at the JBR.  She loved the big crowds, the festive jingle bells, and Rheuby the Reindeer!

Sarah is so special to me.  We met while studying abroad in London, and became fast friends.  She is one of the most loyal, compassionate people I know, and she is always up for a good time!  Sarah and I started dating our cute, bearded boyfriends at the same time at BSU, and the rest is history.  She was the maid of honor in my wedding, and I was a bridesmaid in hers.  I hope we will be sipping wine, shopping and laughing together until we are old and gray!

Amazing friends right there!  Brian and I are so lucky to have each of them in our lives.

SO many people came out to celebrate and support Sarah – so amazing to see this every year, and it just keeps growing!

Corinne loves her Sarah too.  She also loves stealing my wallet out of my purse 😉

You can find more information about the Arthritis Foundation and JBR here.  Not only does it support a great cause, but the JBR is a really fun, festive and healthy way to celebrate the season!
