International Women's Day
Today marks the 100-yr. anniversary of International Women's Day, and as I was thinking of the women in my life who have inspired me, clearly the #1 on my list is my mom. Always putting others' needs before her own, a great friend and multi-talented creative soul as well, she has always encouraged me to reach for the proverbial "gold ring", and made me believe I could do things as well as anyone else. She taught me to sew when I was only 5 years old, and always took the time to show me creative techniques and the value of an imagination. What an inspiration she continues to be for me today!
