Today on the day after my 61st birthday I have to apologize for not keeping up with the blog. It has been a year of challenges and changes. Truly I can't complain about any of it. It the midst of reaffirming my position as a top Realtor in Marin, I have been blessed with a few great clients and an incredible family who make my heart sing.

Our youngest daughter Katie, called to announce her engagement to Dominic Smelt. Wedding to be next year on May 23 in Seattle. I am happy for her happiness. 

Allison and Chris celebrated Alexandra's first birthday in Bolivia. Although I can moan over not being able to be there, they too are happy and Alex is thriving. 

On all these accounts I can look forward to seeing them all this year. Hopefully if politics allow I will be walking with both my daughters in the Seattle Komen 3 day. 

What a life I am blessed to have 19 years after being diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

But things have saddened me too. My sisters dear friend who has battled this disease in its late stages is losing her fight, stopping all treatment. Another warrior who was a 30 year survivor died at the age of 63. Every day young women are ignored with lumps they have discovered themselves because even Dr.s mistakenly think, they are too young to get Breast Cancer. And my dear Aunt just had a mastectomy in the East Coast far away from me leaving the phone as the only way to connect and try and help.

The fight is far from over. So I walked my first SF to Sausalito walk in training this week with many more to come. I would love your support. How about a donation. I have a goal of $11,800 for this year. I've got about $4000 to go. 

I will try to blog more often, until then.... Think of me juggling as always, pinching myself when I think about how fortunate I have been to not just beat Cancer, but be supported by so many wonderful people.
