This past weekend was a busy one. Spent all day Saturday running errands and preparing for Stella's birthday... nothing noteworthy.
But Sunday was much different. It was a day to reflect, raise awareness and support all of those who battled and are still battling with breast cancer. There is a total of 4 beautiful and courageous women in my life that has been afflicted. One is in remission, one is currently in treatment and two have fought it to the end.
I'm a pretty private person, I don't let many people in and I tend to internalize a lot of things. I kind of see myself as a turtle. I'll just crawl into my shell and pray that everything will be alright. What I have come to realize, is that sometimes I need to do more than just pray.
Now I didn't do the walk (it was already too late to register), but we (my family, cousins, nieces and nephew)came out to support my sister and aunt who did register. It was powerful to see thousands of people walking, cheering and showing their strength in numbers.
In other news... my giveaway is now closed. I'll be back with the winner...
