Happy Happy Birthday -- and many more! Congratulations! In your honor, I am going to do my first-ever challenge. Tonight. If I can stay awake. But really, I promise to do a challenge - and you are the one inspiring me!
PS -- My sister-in-law is a breast cancer survivor - 23 years cancer free. I wish the same and more for you.
PPS -- Hello to all - hope I get the chance to "know" you all better through this month.

This will be my first time doing challenges and I'm super excited. See, today is my birthday and it's a very special birthday. Last October I was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of breast cancer. Life was a whirlwind for many months following, my doctors didn't waste any time thank goodness. Today I am celebrating an NED (no evidence of disease) birthday! Yay! I plan on many more to come.
So...my house is a mess, laundry needs folded, floors need cleaned, bathrooms scrubbed, blah, blah, blah. I am not doing ANY of that today! LOL I am going to spend the day making cards for the challenge and preparing for the event I have planned on the 15th. I'm teaming up with Friends of the Bald Woman and inviting everyone to come make cards, mini-clipboards, and bookmarks that will go in chemo care packages. I can't wait!! Pretty sure this is the start of a new birthday tradition.
Hello everyone and thanks so much for participating. You are touching lives.
PS - Almost forgot my recipe for the day. lol I've recently discovered the goodness of Quinoa. Chop up some onion and garlic, sautee in olive oil (or canola). Add 1 cup quinoa and brown for about 3 min. Add 2 cups chicken or veggie broth, basil, black pepper, cumin, & oregano and simmer for 15-20 min until the quinoa is "clear". Serve over baby spinach. My kids love it!
