Michelle Balleck: Soak up the sun

It's more weddings for me this weekend. I'll be photographing one Friday and attending a second on Saturday. 'Tis the season for lovebirds.

And 'tis the season for enjoying this weather. It's certainly been heating up lately. And I, for one, am loving it. So we'd better get out there and enjoy it while we can.

• Stay outside, and up, all night, all for a good cause.

The 2010 Craig Relay for Life kicks off at 6 p.m. Friday, complete with the luminaria ceremony and words from cancer survivors, and continues through 8 a.m. Saturday.

Local supporters will walk the Moffat County High School track, 900 Finley Lane, throughout the night to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

Head up there for a moving experience, some definite fun and to throw your two cents in, or rather, as big of a check as you can write.
