Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the cooler weather. I love the colors. I love the start of holiday season (Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas). I also love my ta-tas and October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Retail chains of restaurants and department stores always have cute pink items where a portion of the sales goes to a breast cancer organization like Susan G. Komen. I absolutely LOVE Panera Bread's Pink Ribbon Bagel.
Like so many others, breast cancer has touched my life. My paternal grandmother had breast cancer in the late stages of her life. My neighbor tested positive for the breast cancer gene and had a double mastectomy. My mother-in-law is currently battling a very aggressive form of breast cancer. She was diagnosed in the spring of this year, had the lump removed and has now undergone chemotherapy and radiation. I am happy to say though she is WINNING the battle!! In honor of her and so many other women across the country, I wanted to do something for Breast Cancer Awareness month. I'm not real thrilled with the way the wreath turned out but it gets the point (and color) across. Cake pops were a big hit!
