Life has been busy for us in the Z household. Both boys are doing very well at school, getting used to seventh and ninth grade, and enjoying their sports. Living with a tween and teen has certainly opened our eyes to the new challenges of parenting (oh boy do I miss the younger years!)
I have definitely found some extra time to myself now it is no longer cool to hang out with mummy. I have very mixed feelings about this, but I am happy to say that I am putting my time to good use. I have been doing a lot more fundraising of late and we have made great strides with our two featured charities; Light The Night and CureSearch.
September has come and gone, the traditional month of Childhood Cancer and Blood Cancer Awareness. Many gold bracelets were sold for CureSearch, and I was careful to add a mix of support charms and charms such as the butterfly which symbolizes support but can be worn on any occasion. In fact, these gold bracelets have become popular with many customers who do not have links to childhood cancer. They just love the way the bracelet looks. The donation is a bonus!

In October, we walked with Light The Night as always. We actually raised over $2000 to help those fighting leukemia and other blood cancers. We enjoyed a lovely walk in Connecticut this time, along with close friends and family. We all said a little 'thank you' for the survivor walking with us.
