Pretty in Pink...

Jeremy and I spent Saturday afternoon enjoying Jacksonville while volunteering downtown. 

The Florida Times-Union, where Jeremy works, decided to create a special "pink" edition of the newspaper to sell downtown. The proceeds went to help women dealing with breast cancer pay for their treatment.

Here's what the pink paper looked like: (a few old people complained that they couldn't read it, even though the printing was clearer than usual!)

Here's Jeremy, peddling our wares:

And here's me doing the same:

We were stationed at The Landing, a cool restaurant/entertainment spot right on the St. John's River downtown. There was an "art festival" going on while we were there (I put "art festival" in quotes, because there were only a handful of exhibits.)

Here's one of the artists reading the paper:

While we were working, we were entertained by cool jugglers...

We also got to enjoy a nice view!

Overall, it was a great day to be a do-gooder!
