Breast Cancer Awareness

Ok - so here goes my little public service announcement for all the women that I love and care for in my life and for those women reading this that I don't know but still care about.

Breast cancer is a disease that unnecessarily takes the lives of a lot of women. It can so easily be caught in the early stages and treated with a full recovery.

Being aware of the disease and taking steps to protect yourself is not very time consuming and easy.

Please do a breast self exam monthly. If you aren't sure how to do one either google it on the internet or ask your doctor. Also - go for a yearly mammogram after you turn 40. I've had my mammogram this year - in fact I had it yesterday. They are not horrible at all! It's quick, easy and PAINLESS!!!

Please love yourself!!

It Didn't Rain On My Parade!!!!

Today I marched in my very first parde with the Marching Ravens!!! It was Baltimore's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade!

This parade is a big deal here in Charm City. There were tons of people. The cheering of the crowds was overwhelming at times. I've never experienced anything like this before. It was AWESOME!!!!

I had a great time. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to make it through the whole two mile parade route. I should have had more faith in myself. I made it with energy left over. Maybe it was the adrenline rush I had going but I did it and I loved it!! I'm tired and achy now but it was soooo worth it!!!

I really do love being a member of the Marching Ravens! I'm looking forward to our next event. We have three parades on July 4th!! That's right - a grueling three parades! I can't wait though! I'm told it's a ton of fun!!!

So - in closing - Happy St Patrick's Day!! May the luck o' the Irish be with you!

Bloggers Block

I'm blogging to let you all know that lately I've been dealing with some pretty tough issues lately and have developed a case of "Bloggers Block".

The issues are pretty much either under control or manageable at this point.

Please continue to check back and I promise within the next few days I'll start blogging again.

Thank you all for your continued love and support!
