Bye Bye Boobies

Last, night, I was surrounded by love and laughter. I gathered the 8 amazing girls who have agreed to walk with me, along with other fabulous and supportive girlfriends who are along for the ride in other ways.

oh sure, make me cry why don’t you

I admit, the last 48 hours have kicked my ass. I started out so strong, and ended up couch-surfing. It’s not pretty. But then, I got an email this morning from a long-time bloggy friend E who send me A LIST of things she will be sending to the auction. A LIST! Several items! And …
