Real Life Issues

To Hope is to Believe

Once again, Nan outdid herself. She didn’t let a little rain stop her party and hosted a fantastic event this weekend at The Vintage House benefitting the Vera Bradley Breast Cancer Foundation. With Joan Bradley Reedy, the Crockin’ Girls, and a fabulous bag cake – The Vintage House was definitely the place to be.

I graciously channeled my inner Oprah and made sure that the first 100 (more like 120 guests) received their very own free market tote in the newest Vera Bradley Breast Cancer print, Katalina Pink. That was just the beginning of what would become an absolutely beautiful day of celebrating the good fight we are facing for the cure for breast cancer.

I wish I could find the words to describe the immense amount of pride I have in being apart of such a wonderful fundraising event. The Vintage House has been a part of my life since I received my first piece of Vera Bradley in 2004. Since then I’ve earned an extended family that has celebrated and loved me these last 11 years. Every year I am reminded to make a difference, give back, and believe in big things thanks to one particular individual, Nan Walvoord.

A two-time breast cancer survivor herself, she has become even more passionate over the years for providing the means to find a cure so that no family has to go without a loved one being apart of those amazing moments in life. Her courage and drive in bringing awareness to breast cancer is infectious to any that cross her path.

I look forward to my continued support of The Vintage House and the Vera Bradley Breast Cancer Foundation. Hope is to believe and I honestly do believe that we are a step closer to finding a cure after this event.
