Happy Fourth of July Everyone! I will be spending my day hiking in a place I love, with the man I love. Watching a parade. Eating all the summery foods I can get my hands on. Counting my blessings and loving my country (but not always it’s government). This week especially has me thinking about women’s rights, which are human rights. And I’ve been very touched by this video. And feel inspired and empowered by my girl’s blog post. And yes, I throw like a woman, I wake up like a woman, I wield a pencil and paintbrush like a woman, I hike and workout like woman. And you know what else I do? I vote like a woman. And this Independence Day has me understanding, ever more deeply, how important that right and freedom is. Enjoy your Fourth of July and all the beauty it reveals! Long May She Wave!!
