Hey Pinks~This week I am overjoyed to share that I've reached the 5 year mark of being cancer free! After battling this beast twice~it feels pretty wonderful. Many of you have read my comments regarding the desire of a convertible car to let the wind blow through my hair~that sense of freedom~Well....I have finally gotten one! Just this week, and the amazing full circle of the whole thing is the car is 5 yrs. old...so in a sense I feel like I have reached this milestone of sorts. Anyways~~I have posted a pic on my expressions page, in case you want to have a look.

I am tickled "pink" to say the least!

~~blessings~~hope~~

~Melanie

The weather here is typical NW~ drizzles and gray......the best time of year to buy a convertible for sure! Praying for sunshine!

You'll get plenty of warmer weather and sunshine...not to mention some shopping time with your Texas bud ;)

Get your hubby to take a pic of you in your convertible so you can use it as your avatar :D
