Today was such a fun day! I am in art club at my school, and yesterday the president of art club reminded me that we had a face painting event that we volunteered for at a bakery called Calliope Sweets. So that was the main highlight of my day. 
I got there at about 10:30 and waited with Alexis for the kids to show up for awhile before she had to leave for a hair appointment. So she left and I waited by myself. The owner of the the bakery said that when the parade starts, the kids will start to show up. As soon at that Christmas parade was over, tons of kids started to pour into the shop. I painted snow men, snow flakes, Christmas trees, presents, Rudolph, Georgia Bulldog's "G", and a red and green butterfly. I loved watching all the little kid's faces before, during, and after they got their faces painted. Especially when I told them I had glitter!
So after a while of painting a bunch of faces, there got too long of a line to have inside the warm shop, so the owner said she was going to move the table outside. Burr! It was so cold! But I still had a ton of fun. Those kids were so cute, and I loved how excited they got over something so simple as a painting on their cheek. I wish I could go back to those days... 
Everything is getting better. And I loved today. <3
