Hey, Yall!!!! Ok! I have missed you all soooo much! I've definitely become so accustomed to my blogging "life" that I definitely had to post something today! I felt obligated!!! First, let me tell you all that I'm feeling much much better (not 100%, but almost)! So thank you all for the well wishes, they are very much appreciated. I also have to give a big shout out to my mom for coming over two days in a row while I was sick...she did all those special things moms do when we need them! She even folded my laundry, did the dishes and made me soup and tea! Thanks Mommie, love ya lots! :D

On Wednesday, Oct. 19th I will be wearing purple and joining Suze of Miss Vinyl Ahoy in spreading the word that abuse is not love. As you know October is breast cancer awareness month, and it is also domestic voilence awareness month.
I welcome you all to also support the cause! I'm sure if you have not been affected by domestic abuse you definitely know someone who has!
If you participate:
Please save this ribbon and put it on your blog post on October 19, along with the following paragraph to raise awareness:
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
1 in 3 families are affected by domestic violence. Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors — physical, sexual, psychological, and economic coercion — used by one intimate partner against another (adult or adolescent) to gain, maintain, or regain power and control in the relationship. Batterers use of a range of tactics to frighten, terrorize, manipulate, hurt, humiliate, blame, often injure, and sometimes kill a current or former intimate partner.
If you are in danger, please call 911, your local hotline, or (in the U.S.) the National Domestic Violence Hotline: (800) 799-7233 or TTY (800) 787-3224.
