Heading South this Weekend

One year ago my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and after months of chemo, surgery and radiation, thankfully today she is a breast cancer survivor!

This Saturday my family is hosting a Celebration Party to thank all the friends and families who fought with us this past year. My mom created an Evite a few months ago, and what started with just a couple dozen invites has turned into 89 people who RSVPed “Yes.” That’s the size of a small wedding! Nevertheless, it should be a great time with lots of southern sunshine, five different kinds of cake, and friendly faces I haven’t seen in months (including my BFF and J!).

Sounds like the perfect way to celebrate life and welcome Spring, don’t you think? Hope everyone else has a great weekend! :)

PS- You guys are AWESOME! I couldn’t believe how many congratulations I got yesterday… thanks so much for all your support!

    You. Kick. Butt.

    Seriously!!! I am so happy for you. When I paid of my personal loan I was totally pumped, so I can’t imagine what it would be like to be totally debt free. You’re an inspiration! And I’m also really happy about your mom – breast cancer is one of the most serious health concerns women face, so hearing survivor stories always makes me happy.

    Have a great weekend!

  • Wow – two posts in a row containing fantastic news. I am so, so pleased for you on both counts!! Have a brilliant weekend of celebrations x

  • Your mom certainly has something to celebrate. This is an awesome milestone for all of you. Cherish the moments. They are priceless.

  • I just saw this today, but congrats to your mother! My aunt is a two-time cancer survivor….and while that was tough for the family, I can’t imagine how much tougher it would’ve been had that been my mother. I hope you all had a fantastic time!

  • Awww, that’s wonderful!! I’m a little belated. but what a fabulous reason to celebrate! So happy for you and your mom! I hope you had a great time! : )
