Day 22~”31 Days of PINK” Karen Desert Chica Ramblings

Hi Pink Cake readers! I am Karen from Desert Chica Ramblings, I “ramble” about my 2 little guys, our family adventures, my attempts at creativity and just about anything in between!
I was honored to join the 31 Days of Pink but stumped on what I could share. I am not really a “pink” girl and with two little boys I couldn’t rely on them for inspiration either!
So I went hunting through my closet and voilà found the perfect item tucked away with my childhood “treasures”. One summer vacation, my dad bought me a pair of pink bird barrettes at a roadside stand.

I only have one barrette left but it is the perfect thing to share today. It’s pink and it reminds me of childhood. I am sharing this picture today for all the kids and grand kids affected by breast cancer.
My mom was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer 5 years ago. I’d just given birth to my first little guy and was horrified. I couldn’t believe I might lose my mom and my son might grow up without his grandma. It made me feel like a helpless little kid.

Thankfully, my mom fought hard and won. And my boys get to enjoy their grandma all the time! I wish all kids were so lucky.
