This night she shared a story or two and a few tears as well. We love you JOY.

Doing my best Lady Ga Ga
OK so last night 22 ladies gathered together to celebrate JOY'S 20 year anniversary of doing a drop kick, a elbow to the chin, a karate chop you get the picture to breast cancer.

Who is JOY? Well she is my mom's BFF for at least 25 years. They met at neighborhood Halloween party and were the last two to leave therefore they have spent many Friday's going to movies, shopping, drinking wine, telling stories and solving all of the worlds problems. You know the kind of friend I am talking about. They are rare and when you have one you hold on tight.

JOY is like another mother to me and has been there for everything.

So really it was an honor to me to be in the room with all of these ladies last night as we celebrated our dear friend JOY.

The wine was flowing and the ladies got OUT of CONTROL. OK not really, but a lady brought a pink wig which has you can tell became the go to photo prop of the night. Lord knows I made the biggest you know what out of myself with it, but it was all in fun and all for JOY.

Cheers to you JOY and to all the women out there who have survived!
