Today is an exciting and sad day because it is the last day of Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week. This is the day when all of the students hard work is shown to the judges as they present financial statements and their marketing plan. I am so proud of my group of students, the 20 of them have worked so hard this week and in a small amount of time, they learn to master marketing, industry financials and many other aspects of the business world. To watch these students learn is just breathtaking.
I had an amazingly great group of students this year, they were all ridiculously smart, hard-working and grateful for this opportunity.

One of the other great things about volunteering here is the other company advisors that you meet, the staff at PFEW and everyone else involved are some of the most giving and wonderful people you will ever meet.
And then of course, it's a week of volunteerism with my hubby-to-be, the biggest kid there is!
It has been a wonderful week and I am sad to leave but happy to see my friend Lindsey get married tomorrow and then the Spartan Race on Sunday! I am hoping that a week of healthy eating and moderate training will be enough to help me not to get too tired during the race.
I also cannot wait to get back to Charlotte to officially congratulate my friend Kat and John who got engaged the past week. Unfortunately, we had to miss it because we are traveling but we were on pins and needles the night we knew that it was happening.
I am so happy for them, they are a wonderful couple and I know that they will have many happy years together.
