Relay for Life!

The most inspiring two-time survivor, Miss Darby

Though this has nothing to do with vintage fashions, we can file this one under "inspiration." Last night we attended the Huntsville Metro Relay for Life, a fundraising event for the American Cancer Society.

Leah and I had the honor of walking with the beautiful 10-year-old Darby during the first "Survivor Lap" of the 12-hour event. Darby has beaten cancer not only once, but two times in her short life. I can't think of anything more inspiring than that. Despite some aching in her legs, we circled around for two laps and she barely wanted to stop then.

The motto of Relay is "Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back." Congratulations to everyone who participated last night, you are all heroes and we celebrate your battle.

XOX,
Ashley
