Pink......

Yes, we are seeing pink everywhere, it's a color much associated with the month of October. It's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I don't need to tell you why this year it kinda hits home.


020
Not only did my own mother pass away from this disease 18 years ago...

My Aunt recently has been undergoing treatment this year as well.

029
I have wonderful friends and family who have supported me. Thank you all!

Please, please take care of yourselves and get your mammogram and yearly checkups. Click the link above for any questions, help, hints you need, etc. For the males that may read this, yeah, you need check ups too! Not necessarily a mammogram, but you know...any other parts ;)

Consider this your PSA for any and all health careness of yourself! Take care of you!

Ok, hugs, hugs, but now that that's out of the way---are those YOUR flowers? If so I'm calling you out as a liar on that supposed black thumb!! ;-)

I LOVE those hibiscus!

I have never been a pink person but I'm so happy to see all the pink this month and all the fundraising for breast cancer research.
