And We Walked

It was a perfect fall day. The sun was shining and the temperature was a perfect 70 degrees.
Here we are....Vickies Chickies getting ready for the Making Strides Against Breast cancer walk.

Here is Vickie herself with my sweet little niece Emma
She is in Vickie's first grade class and was very excited to be walking with her teacher.

Here are two of my beautiful daughters.
It made me feel very proud to walk with them. They are very caring and love Vickie with all their heart. She is like their second mother.

Some of us got tired along the way and stopped for a little rest.

A very few, like one of us, was lucky enough to be carried when she got tired.

This is Vickie and her wonderful husband Paul after the race. If you look up love in the dictionary, there is probably a picture of them.

This is just a small sampling of the pictures I took. You know me. I think I took close to 100. The really good news is that last time I checked, Vickie's Chickies had raised $1764.30 for breast cancer research. Everything hasn't been tallied yet, so I'm pretty sure the total will be higher.

I am truly blessed to have Vickie as my friend. I love her. She is an inspiration to me on a daily basis. As long as they have a Making Strides walk, I'll be there. I'll be raising money for research because I want my friend to be with me for a very long time.


  1. First, as a survivor, let me thank you very much for all you do for all survivors, especially your friend Vickie. She is so lucky to have such a good friend.

    Congrats on raising so much. I hope our walk on the 30th will have such beautiful weather.

    I loved seeing the pics.


  2. It makes me feel so good that I supported Vickie in a small way. And why aren't there more pictures of YOU?

  3. I cried at the beauty of your friends, your daughters, the participants, the day, the LOVE. Thank you for being you... for being YOU! Love you so much...

  4. I'm so happy that you had a lovely walk and raised money for a WONDERFUL cause! What a group of gorgeous people!

  5. Beautiful pictures of a beautiful moment in time. Nancy, you are awesome!

  6. Nancy, Vickie is LUCKY to have a good friend like you!


I love comments. It makes me feel like I know you better. Even if you just say hi, please leave me one!
