October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Proceeds from our ‘Awareness’ Breast Cancer Ribbon card benefit the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – EVERY month of the year.

Hopefully, neither you, nor anyone you know, will be stricken by this disease.

Sadly, the statistics are scary.

According to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation:

  • One in Nine Canadian women is expected to develop breast cancer during her lifetime.
  • One in Four (26%) cancers diagnosed in women in Canada are breast cancer.
  • One in Thirty women in Canada will die from breast cancer.

Together, we can help work towards finding better diagnoses, more effective treatments and a hopefully one day… a cure.


I don’t think it can be overstated…

Cancer Sucks.

* While we acknowledge that this time of year is called “The Dog Days of Summer”… our cats would like us to remind you that the Dog Days of Summer was a phrase originally coined to talk about the 20 days before, and 20 days after, the conjunction of Sirius (the Dog Star) and the Sun… and therefore should not be used in this instance.  We over-ruled them. (Even though we were very impressed by their astrological knowledge!)  And it should be noted, that while this may or may not be the Dog Days of Summer… according to our Haute Note “assistants”, it is ALWAYS the Cat Days… Spring, Summer Winter and Fall!

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is still a few days away… but weekends are hectic times, and we wanted to take a moment… find a few pictures from “back in the day”… and share them.

That is, after all, the purpose of Mother’s Day.

To say “Thank you” for everything.

Because, despite how cute and adorable and innocent we look in these pictures… every kid causes their Mom (or Mum) at some point, to stop… take a deep breath… wipe their hand across a furrowed brow… and internally count to ten.

And, whether the Moms are across the table, or across the Country…

Whether you can give her a hug, or just hold her in your heart…

Happy Mother’s Day!
