On April 25th, 2013, my mom was diagnosed with Stage Two Breast Cancer. Watching her fight for her life; going through chemotherapy and radiation while working full time was something very inspiring to me. She never once complained and she never once took a day off from work. While it didn’t come without tears being shed, it was educational in ways I didn’t imagine possible. Sitting here, writing this, I think about how different I am in just 365 days. I am a little stronger, a lot wiser and, well, my skin is a little bit thicker, which is about damn time if you ask me.

Some exciting life endeavors are taking place and I am going to take a momentary break from M of Hearts. Essentially to help plan and brainstorm for what is next, as well as to clean and get my life in order post-Festival (my apartment and my poor cat have been neglected and need a little love). I will be back hopefully Friday with the M of Diamonds, but for sure next week to share all new posts with you. Stay tuned during the month of April to meet the M of Clubs and an all new Guest Blogger!
If you are interested in being a Guest Blogger for the M of Hearts, I would LOVE to have you! Feel free to send me an email at Meaghan@M-of-Hearts.com for details.
Enjoy the rest of your week and I will see you soon.
