October 5th marked a year since I finished my cancer treatments, other than having a hysterectomy.
Saturday the 4th I threw myself a party to celebrate that and also my upcoming birthday (the 8th).
I had lots of friends and family join me at one of my favorite Japanese restaurants.
Party favors were passed around. I wore the devils horns (pictured here). I love having party gifts to play with.
My brother made a trip up with his girlfriend, that was really special and I also got a huge surprise of having my friend from London show up unexpectedly. I was like a deer in headlights when I saw him standing there. I had spoken with him the day before and had no idea of his plans. No one has ever given me such a surprise before!
As you can see from the picture I also had my hair color changed. I wanted to do something different to honor this time. I have always wanted to try dark brown or black hair.
I'm just grateful to have hair at all!
I had a wonderful time and am so grateful for everyone who joined me! I felt a bit undeserving but am working on that. :)
This week while my friend is here we'll be doing some more celebrating by driving up the coast of Maine and hopefully seeing some great leaf colors.
So, heres to a year of survival!
I'm still here cancer!!! You haven't beaten me! So there!!
