Hard to believe that there are just 31 days until Boston’s Jimmy Fund Walk! (And only 30 days until my 30th!!). Just last month I posted about how I’m joining thousands of walkers both in person and virtually on Sunday, September 27 to for the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund walk presented by Hyundai and help Dana-Farber Cancer Institute conquer all cancers in both children and adults.

Want to get involved? Good news! There is still time to register for the walk – don’t be alarmed you don’t have to walk the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton. There are other starting points along the route like Wellesley (13.1mi). Boston College (5mi) and Dana-Farber (3mi) you can begin at. Regardless of where you start all participants will cross the finish line at Copley Square where walkers and their families can enjoy some of Boston’s best live music and bites. Click here to register and be sure to use the promo code BLOG to get $5 off!

I’m still a ways away from my $300 fundraising goal, so if you’d like to support me by donating $5 it would sure make me happy! Every dollar raised by myself and the other walkers is helping the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world. I’m tired of living in a world of terminal diseases – we can do better. Together. Maybe cancer has touched your life like it has mine. Maybe you’ve lost a loved one due to the disease and maybe you’re not personally affected. The point is it doesn’t matter, we should all want better for each other and ourselves and should all make it a priority to invest in crucial cancer research. We shouldn’t just have to imagine a cancer free world. It should be a reality. For my Grandma and for all of those who have been touched by the horrid disease.

Head Back to School in Style with OshKosh

Yes, the same Mom who has been posting on social media to soak in every last drop of summer is now talking about back to school! It really creeped up on me this year! Luckily, we’re in great shape thanks to OshKosh B’gosh! They have a variety of fall essentials and plenty of different pieces designed for today’s active and expressive kids.

Shopping for my soon to be tween has gotten more interesting as her sense of style has evolved over the past couple of years. With creative designs and graphics my kiddo was able to pick out new wardrobe additions that didn’t make me cringe! Even better you know when you shop with OshKosh you’re bringing home quality products so kids have the confidence to excel in the classroom and beyond in the upcoming school year.

New wardrobe additions from OshKosh meant one thing….PHOTOSHOOT!!!!
