Potato,Zucchini Soup & Click For Bri

I am sure like me most of you didn't know about Briana till Juaglabandi announced their special click event this month.Now I don't think there is anyone in the blogsphere who don't know Bri.

All of us are touched by her story of her brave fight for breast cancer

Yellow is the happiest colour in the spectrum. It signifies hope and enlightenment. Through the work of the LiveStrong Foundation, it has also come to signify the fight against cancer.
So that is why this months click is Yellow....

If you want to join in the special Edition of click , you will find it here
