One step closer.....

I had the opportunity to help my friend Jo with Joanne Distaso Photography this past weekend with a celebrity wedding... ( all I can post or say about that is "BEAUTIFUL".. there.. that's it...

Then the following day she asked if I would like to come along to help her shoot a celebrity poker event for the One Step Closer Foundation, hosted by the Sam Simon Foundation.. cool digs, I am there... that was so much fun...

The foundation raised money for a great cause...To help finding a cure and bringing awareness for Cerebral Palsy...
The One Step Closer Foundation aims to make a difference by establishing fundraising efforts towards bringing a keen awareness and understanding of this disease to the community...~JZ

Jacob Zalewski is the president & CEO of the foundation and living with CP himself...
This hit home, because a couple months ago, I met a new friend.. His name is Julian.. (the one that likes my laugh) ha!....

Julian was diagnosed with CP early on and fights this battle every day of his life....I would love nothing more to see more education and faster progress with this diagnosis and to get one step closer...

Thanks Jo.... it was so much fun hanging out this weekend...








and the other best part of the day was watching Jo in action... Is she talented or what??? Jo, you are going to have to show me how to do that one handed trick.. very cool... :)



Mam, please put the drink down!!! You have had way too much energy for today.. Ha!


okay.. now off to prep for my 8-8-08 wedding.... the most popular day of the year to get hitched...... this is going to be a fun one... Stay tuned....;)

Have a great weekend...
