Look who I met at chemo!

Lynn from Unaodd...from UnaOdd.etsy.com. She lives 10 minutes from where i do my chemo so she came to meet me and visit! It was so nice having her come!!!! Lynn had a very similar surgery as me, also in May, and she's lucky to escape chemo - Yay!!! Lynn is such a beautiful person and very talented. She's a mom to a first grader and a fourth grader and she took jewelry making in college,... and she paints, too! If you have never been to her shop, you need to see it! She's part of teamepe and she's officially the second Etsy person that i've personally met.......Kendra (teamzvonik and greenpost) being the first! I go for my next dr. appt on 10/21 and Jenn and I are going to meet Lynn for lunch! If you are in the Allentown PA area that day, you can come meet Lynn, too! She really made my day!

oh... and round 4 - a thing of the past! I start up again on 10/26, so i need to get myself up and running! love you guys. laura XXOO


  1. First of all you look absolutely lovely Laura:-)

    I took a visit to your new friend's store. You are right, Lynn makes exquisite pieces of jewelry. It's wonderful the way you both met!
    Good luck with your round 4:-) and enjoy your lunch meeting.
    Please say hello to Lynn and Jenn!

  5. What a wonderful photo! And what fun for you two to meet -- and to be getting together with Jenn for lunch. Wish I could be there too, but I'll be with you in spirit!

    Laura and Lynn, you are BOTH so beautiful, and talk about lighting up a room! Wowza! That one must have been absolutely sparkling. Come to think of it, there was a mysterious glow in the sky to the southwest of here yesterday ... hmmmmm ...?

Bright warm thoughts and love heading your way from NC!

  9. How wonderful you both got to meet! It is so nice to have some sit with you during Chemo. When my sister was having Chemo for lymphoma I would stay with her for 2 days, we actually would look forward to our time together and it made it more bearable for her.
