It's my favorite month - October! It always seems to be a beautiful month; on the east coast the leaves are turning beautiful colors, and here on the west coast the weather is warm and sunny. It's also my birthday month!
October also just so happens to be breast cancer awareness month. I thought I'd share one of my favorite shops supporting the cause. Lisa Says Gah decided to put together a 'Boob Shop'. Proceeds from items sold from the shop will go to the UCSF breast cancer research foundation. They make it easy to support with all of these super cool designs for sale, including this awesome Cold Picnic Boob Rug.
There is also a lovely interview here with Amanda Niello, who is currently powering through breast cancer. Her light hearted, open, and positive attitude towards the experience is incredibly inspiring.
My mother-in-law had breast cancer before I knew her, and was able to conquer it as well. It meant a lot reading the interview and being able to imagine what she must have been going through at the time.
