    Not even two weeks ago we learned that my amazing nephew had a tumor in his brain. Prior to tha final diagnosis we were all pretty sure it was cancerous.

    I walked this 5k for my nephew and my sister.

    The butterfly on this is amazing. Larger than I thought it would be. Absolutely beautiful
