This (pink thoughts thursday post for breast cancer awareness in the month of October) is for one of my very best friends and her beautiful mother who is a breast cancer survivor. My wonderful friend, her fabulous mother, her incredible twin sister and her wonderful older sister are celebrating a special birthday this weekend. These are some of the greatest women I know and they are all in one family. What a great job "mom" did - really. These women are strong, fun and so real - they are amazing! I can't say enough except I am so proud and so fortunate to know them. Happy Birthday and have a wonderful time together. I lift my glass to you all!
