Have you ever experienced the sheer delight of getting something that you really want? Something that you see and just have to have? Doesn’t it just fill you with happiness when you finally do get it?
Yesterday, the 5K that I ran in–my third of the year–was immediately followed by a festival. The whole event benefitted foster children in the local area and there were so many post-race activities, I found it hard to leave. While young girls showed off their clogging skills and reptiles were exhibited to excited animal lovers, there was a kids area, complete with a rock wall and inflatable obstacle courses, and plenty for the adults, including merchandise and charity booths, food trucks, and my personal favorite, silent auctions.
I love silent auctions!
