Celebrate Women

Happy Monday, friends!
And Happy Mother's Day to all you amazing moms out there!

Speaking of amazing moms, here's mine:

For us, this weekend was all about celebrating women. Along with it being Mother's Day, we also participated in a Breast Cancer Walk with my husband's family. His mom is a 2-time breast cancer survivor, woot! Can you believe there were over 6,000 other participants?! The overall goal is to raise money for breast cancer care in surrounding areas. My favorite part, though, was to see all the participants who were racing for someone: their mom, friend, sister, cousin, or maybe someone they don't even know. Every where you looked, there were crowds, smiles, laughter, tears, and cheering. For me, being there was one of those feel-good moments. And we had a blast :)

I seriously would strongly urge you to participate in a local event like this if it is an option for you. Music, walking, food, family time, fitness, and fun, all while supporting a good cause.



Oh, and free tshirts! Hello!

  1. This is amazing! I'd love to celebrate in something like this! I don't think my little town puts on these kinds of events so I'll have to search for one and plan a weekend that we can travel for it!
