To all the ladies (and men, but it's not your day, so...) on International Women’s Day, remember: YOU ARE SO WORTHY. Worthy of love, of kindness, of opportunities... of everything. If you didn't know this, you can be, or do, anything you want.
“The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who’s going to stop me.” – Ayn Rand

2019 was a big year for me... I got engaged to the love of my life, Matt, and we married at the end of November. It was the most beautiful, special day of our lives, surrounded by the people we love.
In the days after the wedding an article was being shared on Facebook about the significance of our special day. Happily indulging in my wedded bliss, I hadn't been on social media and didn't see the article until my friend sent it to me directly. I was blown away.
The article was written by Ellen Futterman, a woman who happened to be vacationing at the same place and same time that Matt and I were getting married. She beautifully and eloquently captured the spirit of our celebration. It's a special piece that I will cherish forever.
