See that butterfly? I made it with modeling past and then painted it with water colors.
Here we are celebrating my father in law's Bday with his parents in the center, my husband his brother and sisters with their spouses, my mom in law and our kids, none of us have make up on since we had been by the pool and just chilling, the kids were a hot mess but what matters most is that we got our family picture : )
I got the little tile idea from MY GURU
This picture is of my husband and I right before I had to get my ultrasound done, he is my rock, the one that always says "stay positive" "we will cross that bridge together if need be" he is my world and I am so blessed to have been his wife for the past 12 years : )
I only had 1 day to do these pages and I know I could have done more pages and better looking pages but you see on Tuesday September 29'th (I think) I had a mammogram done and I got a call on Friday October 2'nd by my doctor that she wanted me to have an ultrasound done. So on Wednesday October 7'th I had my ultrasound done and there was clearly something there but the girl who did the ultrasound could not tell me anything so I spent the next 6 days, praying that it would be nothing... still having to keep a smile on my face for our girls sake all the while being scared to death. Finally on Monday October 12 I got a call from my doctor saying "it seems to be a cyst, a 2 cm cyst, I will schedule an appointment to get it drained and we will do another ultrasound in 6 months"
Guess what!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am NOT going to settle for that answer, I have scheduled an appointment where I will request to have it removed...bump getting a biopsy done, just take it out and if it's a cyst...so be it but if it aint, I will then cross that bridge when the time comes. I am sharing this NOT because I want a pity party but because I feel the need to get it out of me, because I believe in the power of prayer and because I want you all to get your mammogram done if you have not done so yet. My dear friend Jen was told for the longest time that what she had was a cyst and she was too young for it to be cancer since she was only 27, last year she had a double mastectomy done and this year she will celebrate her 30'th birthday CANCER FREE.
Sorry for the long post and as always THANK YOU for your kind words, they mean the world to me.

On another note, the talented IRIS BABAO UY will be teaching an online class where all the monies will be donated to the victims of TYPHOON ONDOY, the class is only $5 and it is for such a great cause, I just signed up for it because that $5 is a Mc Donald's meal for me but so much more for those poor people. I really hope some of y'all can sign up for it : )
I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend and as always, THANK YOU for your sweet words, you guys are the best!
