It's almost 12:00 am, and I should be passed out in my bed considering I've been up since 4:30 this morning. I spent my day walking around our nation's capitol, which is the reason I'm wide awake and typing away.
Today was the 2013 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Now, at first I was just going to support a family friend affectionately known to me as "Momma Barnes" but when I got to our cheer station I realized that this wasn't just about one person.
Women and men from all over took time out of their busy lives to participate in a two day (39.3 miles) walk for breast cancer. There were people walking as survivors, as fighters, in memory of a lost friend or relative and some walked just to support the cause. No matter the reason, race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion... thousands of people came together so we can be one step closer to a cure.
I pray that I encouraged each walker today, with every chant yelled and high-five that was given, because they deserved it. Keep it up guys, you did great today and I know you'll do even better tomorrow as it comes to an end (until next year).
Momma Barnes, I'm so proud of you! You're almost there, and you've come too far to give up now. Just remember, walk by faith and every step counts.
How am I tying fashion in with such a great experience?
Well, I decided to put together two outfits in honor of the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Something casual and comfortable, yet stylish.

Until next time,
