Welcome to the very first blog post of Pink Lemonade and Ribbons, a blog of food, life & survival. We are two friends, Karen and Kristine who have been through a lot together over the years. Scroll down to see our About Us post. You will find us here blogging about food, life & survival. Check us out also on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Stumble Upon. We are everywhere on social media. We hope to provide you with planning to help your day and go so smoothly. We also will provide recipe reviews, crafts, decorating, gardening, organization and cleaning.
That is where the survival part comes in. We have both been touched personally by cancer. I am currently going through treatment for Multiple Myeloma, a blood plasma cancer. I will soon under go a stem cell harvest. It is treatable but there is no cure and Karen is a 5 YEAR breast cancer SURVIVOR!
Do you ever feel like everyone around you is managing their lives so much better than you are? You have a pity party for yourself and then you go there: “Why does stuff like this happen to ME???”. Some times just one idea, one change, a plan and we feel like we can change the world. We plan and have ready to go, dinners for our families that we feel are great, not just good but great we can give to the . We know we feel good when that happens. A meal, food that feeds the soul. That feels like our job as mothers, fathers, husbands and wives.
I know when I am heading home after running the mommy taxi and I know exactly down to the last green bean what I am giving my family for dinner, I feel like the kitchen queen. We did one cleaning task such swept and mopped the kitchen and bathrooms. So, we would so appreciate it you come back to check us out. Please sign up for our email list. Karen and I, when cancer hit were forced to leave high stress careers and will most likely only work part time for the rest of out lives. We would rather not rely on disability therefore we picked a slightly lower stress careers than healthcare and banking in blogging. It will be our pleasure to provide you with the time and peace to plan and have less stress in your life. Stress is not good or you. Stress causes health problems like cancer, high blood pressure and heart problems. Let all try to stay healthy.
Karen and Kristine
