Think Pink... October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
The Sweet Happy Color Of Pink!!....It celebrates us...The Girls....!! Everything sweet and sugary, cute and pretty, charming and lovable. It also symbolizes all of the courageous women who have fought and are still fighting Breast Cancer...Pink also carries with it the colorful memories of many mothers, grandmothers, sisters and friends who will live in our hearts forever. I think each of us has known and loved a woman affected by this disease. So to celebrate Life, Love, and The Girls we Think Pink...and we think of You.
Here's a special Recipe to celebrate our Think Pink..
