Some reflections.....

It is Friday evening and I have not been home long from setting up for Crop for the Cure.  Tomorrow is the day and I think it will be great.

I can't believe it!  Five years we have been doing this and that is still amazing to me!  Especially because we did not have a clue what we were doing when we started.  But, here we are on the eve of another event and I think it is just getting better and better.

One of the very best things about hosting this day is doing it with my Momma & sisters.  These ladies are incredible!!  I am so lucky to have them!!

One of the other amazing things is the amount of support we receive.  So many incredibly generous people and businesses step up to help us year after year and I cannot say thank you enough.  It is awe-inspiring to me to see so much generosity!!! 

So, as I wind down my evening here, I look forward to the day tomorrow.  It is sure to be a day of fun and friends and laughter.  But, at the heart of it all is the amazing cause we are supporting.  Breast Cancer awareness is so very important and I just hope that one day there will be a cure.  Until that time we will keep doing our part in the journey there.

Before I go, I have to be sure to talk about the reason all of this happened.  My Nan.  Crop for the Cure is a bittersweet day when it comes to remembering my Nanny.  This all came about in her honour but of course that meant we had lost her.  I cannot believe how long she has been gone.  CFTC is a day of happiness and fun but in my heart there is some sadness too as I miss one of the most incredible women I have ever known.  I miss her so much but I know she is smiling down at us!


  1. Such a great tribute to your Nan! See you tomorrow!

  2. So nice Tracey! I hear you do an amazing job on the crop and hopefully one of these years I will get there! :)
