Link Up for Pink

Thank you all for visiting this weekend and welcome to my new followers. It was really fun to do a hop and I hope to do another one soon. Everyone is so creative and it is so much fun to share together:)

There is still time to get in on the drawing for the hop. Go to here or here and enter. Winner will be announced October 17th.

This month, as I'm sure everyone knows, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is close to home for me as my Mom had a total mastectomy back in 1985. My Mom used to work for an OB/GYN office and they had gotten a new mammogram machine. All the women in the office were having mammograms so that the employees could understand how to work the new machines. Our family was very fortunate that this event happened as she had no symptoms. My Mom had a bilateral mastectomy soon after. She just turned 81 at the end of September and is cancer free. So, get checked regularly and do self examinations too!

Celeste, Gaby and Yolie (fellow bloggers) are having a Link Up for Pink Party. I am including this card in the party. There is still time if you want to add to the party too.
