A Special Pink Sweater #sisterhoodofthetravelingpinksweater

Katy from Indy with Kids (local blogger with great ideas for fun things to do with kids, and a new friend) just passed a special pink sweater to me. This sweater has been with several special ladies in the Indianapolis area to gain breast cancer awareness as well as raise funds for a local organization. The idea is to wear the sweater, take photos, share and ask for donations for the Pink Ribbon Connection.

When Katy asked if I would participate in the Sisterhood she got me thinking how lucky I am that breast cancer has not reared it’s ugly head in my life with my family. I thank the Lord for that, and pray that it stays away. I also pray that a cure is found for all cancers!

I tried to plan a special event for the sweater as I had nothing special on the calendar for the week the sweater was with me but all my plans kept falling through. So….I had my oldest daughter be my photographer for a little photo shoot with the sweater.

I paired this pretty pink vintage sweater with a trendy navy maxi skirt and pearls.

pink sweater outtakes

And for more laughs here’s a collage of the outtakes. Some were me being goofy, some where my daughter just non stop pushing the shutter button. I told her I would be mad if she took 10 photos but not if she took 100, knowing it would take a lot to find a few good ones. I expected her know when to push the button though. When I showed my husband all of the photos we were laughing so hard it hurt.

Now that you’ve joined in on my fun with this special pink sweater please take a moment and hope over to The Pink Ribbon Connection and make a donation to this wonderful not-for-profit organization. The Pink Ribbon Connection provides underserved women with information and resources such as bras, wigs, prostheses and other assistance that supports breast cancer diagnosis, care and recovery.
