Jen’s “Sexy Back” Weekend

I just got back from a great weekend at the NJ shore with my girlfriends. For a while now, my friends and I have been discussing a bit of a celebration when I am done with chemo and surgery. We joked around that it is my "sexy back" weekend since now that I am off the juice, I can get back to my fighting form.

We know that it isn’t the real CELEBRATION since my odds are still 50/50 of the cancer coming back over the next few years. However, if the past 4.5 years have taught us anything, it’s that we need to celebrate the daily milestones as opposed to waiting for the big moment.

My friend from high school generously offered his beach house in Long Beach Island for the weekend so off we went. The weather was perfect, the house was gorgeous and the company was divine. I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful time.

I wouldn’t have made it through the past few years without my friends and I am thrilled that some of them were able to take time out of their busy schedules and celebrate with me.
