Pink Ink … Ode to the {Boobs}

Good Morning Luv-lies,

I spent the better part of the past weekend in bed nursing a cold.  {It unexpectedly reared its nasty head sometime Friday evening}.  Armed with multiple boxes of brand-named tissue, and enough vapor rub, cough elixir and ginger ale to cure a small army, I conceded to the notion of being a prisoner in my boudoir.  Between the sneezing, coughing and unplanned sleep ‘events’, I managed to get in a movie or two.  Chick Flicks mostly.  Nothing like a chick flick to soothe what ales you!

What I like most about a realllly good chick flick is the multiple themes layered throughout.  One theme that we can always count on is love.  From there, the writers might  sprinkle in a little sensitivity, resilience, family … the list is endless.   This weekend’s theme of the moment was bravery.

Long after the closing credits had rolled, as I randomly surfed the ‘net, the whole ‘bravery’ thing stayed on my mind.  I recalled people, situations and experiences in my personal life where acts of bravery were front and center.  My heart warmed at the notion of, either, knowing someone and/or personally stepping up to the “bravery plate”.

My only hope is that, the next time that I have to wear the shield of bravery, I am as brave as these women::

Can You Believe She’s having a DOUBLE Mastectomy !!!!! 🎶 💖💖

Hello Luv-lies

This Girl is on Fire!!!!

On Tuesday, Deborah Cohan, an OB-GYN and a mother of two, went into surgery to have her breasts removed. But before the surgery, she and her medical team threw a pre-op dance party in the operating room at the University of California-San Francisco Medical Center at Mount Zion.

The six-minute video, features Cohan and her surgical team getting jiggy with it to Super Diva – Beyoncé’s hit single “Get Me Bodied.”  The flash mob OR dance was the brainchild of Cohan. and first appeared on CaringBridge, a site that connects friends and family together during a health event. On the site, Cohan created a page called Deborah’s Healing Journey, where she detailed her flash mob plans.

On her CaringBridge page, Cohan wrote – “My fantasy is for you to play the song … and dance wherever you happen to be.” She requested friends and family to send photos and videos of themselves dancing to the song.

“I have visions of a healing video montage. Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me people?”

What an AWESOME Woman!!

So Luv-lies,

What awesomeness have you witnessed today?
