- I'm a habitual line crosser that believes everything happens for a reason, but life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances, you just have to live life to the fullest. Laugh as much as you can, spend all your money, tell someone what they mean to you, tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone's hand, comfort a friend, love the ones who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't, pig out, smile until your face hurts, be a flirt, stay up late and fall asleep watching the sun come up, don't be aftraid to take chances or fall in love . . . and most of all live in the moment, If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. No one said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Monday, May 4, 2009
I've been an active volunteer and supporter of Habitat for Humanity for a long time. Since participating on a on a build in 1999 in Mexico. I recently have become heavily engaged in supporting Austin Habitat for Humanity, including volunteering, fundraising, and committee/board service.
I have also been actively engaged with Habitat Young Professionals ("HYP"), which is a diverse, dynamic group of young professionals (20-something to 40s-ish...no real age restrictions) that are like minded in their support of Austin Habitat and affordable housing. The concept behind Austin-HYP is catching on nationwide as other Habitat affiliates have started similar groups modeled after Austin.
HYP's annual party is this Saturday, May 9th. I wanted to be sure to invite you to come eat, drink, dance & support Habitat's mission of providing affordable housing to deserving, hard-working folks in the community. The event is at the One World Theater (from 8pm-Midnight) and its really fun -- it's much more of a big party than traditional non-profit gala. Endless amounts of great food from many of Austin's best restaurants (Moonshine, La Taverna, etc.), lots of bottomless drink options, DJ and Austin-hip people. Virtually everything related to the event is donated so 95%+ of your ticket price goes to building a HYP sponsored house this Fall.
Ticket prices will go up on Friday so get your tix online early this week: www.buildthehyp.com. Feel free to invite friends and co-workers that may want to attend and feel free to call or email me if you want more info on the event or would otherwise like to get involved with Austin Habitat.
