D – Day Celebration

I’ve lovingly referred to October 18th as “D-Day” or Diagnosis Day. Rather than dread this one year mark, I decided to make it a celebratory day! I invited some of my friends for a cookout and fun!
We enjoyed hot dogs, hamburgers and sides, and pink cupcakes. We also didn’t forget the pink starbursts! 🙂
I was too busy enjoying my friends to even take pictures really but the sky did show off in all sorts of gorgeous pinks and purples.

My mom had also sent me the cutest flowers at work earlier that day!

I am so thankful for the support of my friends and family throughout this whole process and it meant so much to have them by my side on this day to make it a celebration rather than a difficult and trying day.
I’d highly encourage you to find a way to celebrate your one year rather than dread it, if you are also a breast cancer thriver!
