International Women’s Day #PressForProgress


I know International Women’s Day was last week but I really wanted to commemorate it with something on the blog.  In the last year (since becoming a mom of 2) there have been so many positive changes (here are some to name a few) I have gone through by finding my way through intense obstacles.  So much so, that I wanted to take a minute to reflect and remind myself and my daughters of how capable we are.  Although most days I feel like I am doing a $hitty job as a wife and mom (daughter, employee, blogger, friend the list goes on) – I know I am doing something incredibly magical.  Bringing up children (especially girls in our day in age) is probably the greatest opportunity I have been given.  I am grateful and in awe.

I am a wife.  I am a mother.  I am a photographer. I am an MBA.  I am a writer.  I am a creative. I am stronger than I know.  I am braver than I feel.  I am more successful than I think.  I am happy.  I  am emotional.  I am grateful.  I am an Engineer.  I am a Fashionista.  I am a singer.  I am a shouter.  I am a lover.  I am a woman. – BMM


Also, I feel the society we are living in is now much stronger – especially after the events of 2017.  My hope is that we can raise these girls of ours to stand up for themselves, those without a voice and for everything good in this world.  I hope they can look to each other and other women for support and inspiration.  I want them to know that when life is dark, there is always light to be found and embraced. That anything is possible with a determined mindset and everyday grind.  I probably don’t tell them enough, but I want to let my daughters know they are beautiful, strong, courageous and so loved.
