The Journey

So I know I kept you all hanging with my last post.  It's been a tumultous past week or so.  My brother's girlfriend of 3+ years, the amazing Sara Cate, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  Last Sunday, she found the lump...by that Tuesday morning she was in surgery....and by Thursday she was seeing an Oncologist.  It's amazing how quickly your life can change.  She is a strong, sensitive, creative, deep young woman.  She is taking this all in stride with such grace and strength.  You can follow her journey here

And just to share an example of what an amazing girl she is...

I was out of town this past weekend in NYC visiting the one and only Lulu of The Dirty Martini Diaries (vacay recap to come!) and I get this text message from Sara Cate:


Hope you're having a fabulous time in NYC!! You have a little surprise waiting for you when you get back. Love you!

I come home to find these:




Are they not the best notecards EVER?  So perfect!  She's going through a complete whirlwind right now and yet still finds the time and energy to make something so thoughtful and absolutely perfect for someone else?  See, friends, I tell you: pure amazingness.  I'm so blessed to have her in my life, in my family.

Please continue to send your prayers and love.  It means the world to her, to all of us.

xoxo

I have been thinking about her a lot - she's just been in the back of my mind and I've been hoping she is doing well and saying a little prayer for her. I truly hope that this is just a blip on the radar for all of you. And tell her to open a business! :)
