Happy International Women's Day!

Today is my sister's birthday and also the 100th Anniversay of International Women's Day!  To tell you the truth, this is the first year I realized that her birthday falls on such an important day!  It wasn't until I awoke this morning to my photo prompt from Capture Your 365, that I realized that this was not just a special day for my sister, but for women everywhere!  So I'd like to take this opportunity to share with you the women I've admired most in my life:

Here they are left to right (in no particular order of importance):

  • my amazing mother Susan
  • my always compassionate and giving sister-in law Sariah
  • my favorite author Ms. Jane Austen
  • the woman who helped me to take photos I love and cherish, Katrina Kennedy
  • perhaps the most amazing woman who ever lived, Elanor Roosevelt
  • my friend and mentor Debbie Hodge
  • the woman who gave birth to the sweetest man alive, my mother-in-law Jaki 
  • my sister Nicole--The Birthday Girl! 
  • my Aunt Jill who inspired me to create from a young age.
  • my sister-in-law--a true SUPER MOM, Kathrine
  • my hero growing up, Amelia Earhart
  • the most inspiring artist I know, Dina Wakley
  • my grandmother Georgia, who taught me never to go to the supermarket in my pajamas (I wished I had listened)
  • a wonderful crafter, mother and friend, Tami Taylor
  • my beautiful sister-in-law Jesse, I once thought I loved scrapbooking as much as she loved playing the trumpet...I was wrong!
  • my grandmother Dorothy--thanks for teaching my mom to be a great mom, so that she could teach me to be one.  

In some way shape or form all of you have touched my life and made me a better mom, artist, friend and person.  Thank You!
