Thinking Ahead to October

Thinking ahead to October, I am reminded that soon you all will be seeing a bunch of products to make us aware of breast cancer. Seriously, do we need any more reminders?

However, this is the third year that I have created a new design especially for October’s onslaught of the pink ribbon and here it is. There has been an evolution of sorts as the first year saw a design with the pink ribbon forming the “l” in “Believe.” I wanted very much to believe that things would turn out okay. Last year without a single pink ribbon, I focused on retro designs aimed at getting women in for those annual mammograms, and I have noticed several large purchases and imagine that health educators are behind them.

And now with this year’s design, I hope to offer a message that no matter where we are on our journey, we must continue to live our lives to the fullest each and every day.

Seize the day! I just ordered one of your looks like it will keep me warm this winter.

Hang in, Sheila...I'll be thinking of you when I wear it!

WooHoo for Miss Bee! Every appointment with the all clear is a great relief I know. Hope y'all celebrated with a big ole piece of cake.

I hope the hoodie keeps the chill away. Northern Illinois will soon have those crisp mornings and this southern body isn't at all ready. Thanks for the patronage.
