Pink Together Giveaway

Posted in Reviews

Breast cancer awareness is near and dear to my heart as my mother-in-law is a breast cancer survivor.  Cancer is a horrible disease which touches way too many lives.  I’m sure there are very few individuals who have not been touched in some way by cancer.  When I was asked if I’d like to help spread the word about the 2011 Pink Together campaign, I said yes.  Having lost my mother to ovarian cancer, I know the importance of spreading the word about regular check-ups as well as helping raise funds for cancer research.  Fighting cancer is not something you…

I started looking through the photos that I took this past weekend when we went horseback riding and came across this photo of Munchkin and Daddy. I knew that I wanted to do something with it. I didn’t want to play with it too much, so I just went with a simple picture. With so much going on in our lives right now, this verse is a good reminder that God is in control of it all.
