"I BELIEVE IN PINK! I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."— Audrey Hepburn

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every night, friends. You have done what you could. Let it go.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Armchair BEA Intro. Day!

Hi Everyone! I am doing something so totally new for me...I mean a few days ago I couldn't even remember what BEA stood for and now I am participating in it!! Yay!! Well I mean , I am doing it from home...hence, the Armchair part, but you get what I mean...and this is the intro. post...you know, the post where I try to let the other participants know something about myself and my blog...Unlike my regular readers that are used to my Little PINK Place, they might be a but surprised by all of the pink around here...lol...So here goes!!
There are, of course a few questions to guide us...but before I get to those...just a little background... I am a lover of books(I list this first for obvious reasons), a Wife, Mother and 17 year Breast Cancer Survivor...I LOVE PINK...the surprising part? I always did:))


Now, down to business:
BEA Stands for Book Expo America and is held in NYC...the Armchair part is for those of us that would love to go but for whatever reason are not able to...a lovely group has been hosting the ArmchairBEA for several years now...This is my first time joining in and I am very excited...Go here armchairbea and check it out!
SO, now to my intro for all of my fellow Armchair book buddies:)
1. Please tell us a little about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging and why did you get into blogging?
Well, my name is Kim Wright I have been blogging almost 2 years and I originally started the blog as a forum to say what I had to say about many things...with humor:) I am a BC survivor and book lover and so...
2.What are you currently reading or what is your favorite book so far in 2012?
Well, it is far easier to tell you what I am currently reading because I am right now in between books...lol...I am getting ready to start Her Forbidden Hero by Laura Kaye...I am now a member of her street team:))
3. Tell us one non book related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you?
I may have mentioned above that I am a 17 year Breast Cancer survivor and that I am obsessed with the color Pink...so here are 2 other things...I am the Survivor Chair for the Maryland Susan G Komen race for the Cure and ...I am only 4'11" tall! lol
4. What is the favorite feature on your blog?
Hands down the color and the voice...ie; the humor and use of pictures etc...
5. What is your favorite post that you have written? 
Wow, believe it not, that is the easiest question here for me to answer...I am going to put the link here, and I hope you'll read it...you won't regret it...It is not about me...and it is one of the first blog posts I ever wrote!
Enjoy!

  3. Glad to hear that you were able to beat breast cancer & it's inspiring that you are still out there fighting it alongside others. I try to help out when I can - I've run a couple of 5Ks/half-marathons & last year my roller derby team was able to raise a lot of money at an event to go toward the Susan G. Koman foundation. It's great that these fundraisers are popular and that so many people participate in them. Hope you have a fun BEA week <3!

  8. Congratz on being cancer free for 17 years, that's an awesome milestone! I don't think I've ever seen so much pink on one website before :D

    It's awesome you're able to combine your love of reading and help to inspire others who are battling cancer or are survivors themselves!

    It's been great meeting so many awesome people through ABEA, I hope you had a great week :)
