Father's Day, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society plus a Give away!

Alright I rarely blog on the weekends but when I had a chance to tell you about my favorite charity and join an amazing group of bloggers and give back I couldn't pass up the chance.

First I want to share why the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society matters to me and since this is Fathers Day weekend, this works out perfectly.

This is my dad....and he died of lymphoma when he was 27. I have written about this before but I miss him. He was a good man and cancer stole his chance to watch his kids grow up. I want to make sure that cancer doesn't get the chance to take anyone else's parent because growing up without your father sucks. Think about it, you have nobody to teach you how men should treat you. There is nobody to show you what love is suppose to be between a man and a woman. There is nobody to kick a boys butt if he treats you like crap. There was certainly nobody there to tell me I was a beautiful princess and I have never known who would walk me down the aisle. Still, I have the greatest guardian angel a girl could ask for in heaven so I guess I am pretty lucky.

Okay to the give away!!
