Pretty in pink

Hello,  dear friends,

In honour of National Breast cancer Awareness month,  I will share a few pretty pink photos I have taken.
Please encourage your family and friends, to have regular screening tests, it increases the chances of detecting breast cancer early. Having a mammogram could save your life.



For the month of October every year, the Skytower in Auckland is illuminated with pink lights.
From the apartment our children live in, this is the view they can see out one of the windows. 
Thank you, DD for taking this photo for me.
I'm taking a blogging break.
Sometimes a break from your routine is the very thing you need.
Look forward to coming back next week recharged and refreshed.
Many blessings to you,
Hugs
Carolyn

  5. Dearest Carolyn,
    Oh, Thank you very much for the important message and beautiful pictures with lovely pink color. The tower in Auckland is stunning☆☆☆
    My mother died of uterus caner 12 years ago after more than half a year of fighting with it I'm sure she was aware of some sign but too late for the surgery. And her elder sister (my aunt) breast cancer. Yes, I DO need the check up(^^;)
    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  53. Dear Carolyn
    A beautiful 'pink post'.

    I think breast cancer has touched the lives of all of us in one way or another.
    Awareness, and breast checks are helping with early detection of this terrible disease.

    Enjoy your break
    Take care
    Shane ♥
