I have made changes to my blog once again. This time, besides just looking for a change, I have a purpose in mind.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer seems to affect more and more people each day. I hope to spread more awareness and education through random links and information within my posts (or in the sidebar) every once and a while throughout the month. Even if the color of my blog is enough awareness... I am fine with that!
Here's some information to start the month off:
