Thank you!

Thank you for all of your support (emails, comments, donations) about Karen's passing. It was extremely hard for Lauren being all alone through it (I was so far away) -- and participating in the running event gave her a focus. So far she has raised over $3000 for research towards finding cures for the "below the waist" cancers. The Toronto run raised $700,000. Hopefully cures will be found in our lifetimes.

I completely despise cancer. It's great that so much has been raised.

I'm so happy to hear that I will finally meet you at Artfest!!! Wooooooo!

Where are you staying? I've already booked a room at the Swan. (Not a dorm girl, although I hear it's lots of fun.)

Hey thanks for stopping by my blog to leave your storage comment, I am such a fan of zip loc bags.

I am sorry for your friend's loss and glad to see so much was raised.

So sorry to hear about Karen's passing. I know that must have been difficult to be so far away from Lauren during this difficult time.

I received one of your lovely cards in Heather's swap...I blogged about it today. Thanks so much!
