"A woman is like a tea bag - you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." ~Eleanor Roosevelt
Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing two of my favorite recent pictures, one of me with my sister (on the left) and the other of me with a close girlfriend. OK, first off I love these pictures because we all look so happy in them. But second, it's a reminder to me how important it is to cherish the women in our lives (yes, the men too, but that's a blog post for another day). Sisters, mothers, daughters, friends, role models ~ they are so important in our lives, from listening to our troubles to lending a helping hand to inspiring us to do the things we think we cannot do. So on this first day of February, with Valentine's Day coming up and thoughts of love in the air, take a minute to tell the loved ones - the female loved ones - in your lives how important they are to you. From romance heroines to teachers to mothers and beyond, they have the amazing ability to shape our lives and show us what we're really meant to be :)
And read yourself a quote or two (or ten) by the amazing Eleanor Roosevelt. Now she was a woman to admire!
