It's October!!!

Well, it's officially October, and there's SO much happening this month! Lots of great things are happening here on the blog and in our lives! Planning for Halloween, and then the entire holiday season, is getting underway, and stores are starting to put out their holiday goods! My daughter will be in a martial arts demonstration at our local Oktoberfest celebration... Wal-Mart is bringing back their layaway program... 

On top of all of the happenings, October is also National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I've never personally dealt with the disease, and I hope I never have to... but I think it's important to make sure that a cure is found, if not before I could need one, at least before my daughter and her generation needs it. And it's important to make sure that everyone realizes that women aren't the only ones dealing with breast cancer. It still amazes me how many men have no idea that they can also get it.  So, in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Through the Eyes of a Tiger is going pink! This blog will be pink throughout the month of October!

October is also an important month for many other health concerns and cultural celebrations. For a more complete list (I don't know if it's exhaustive) please visit:
