All my life I have been surrounded and influenced by intelligent and beautiful women. I felt that today, in honor of the Women’s March, it was necessary to say thank you.

Thank you to the mothers who never tell their children their dreams are too big. Thank you to the powerful women who use their status as a platform to do good in this world – Gloria Steinem & DVF, I applaud you.  Thank you to the genuine men that stand by women and believe in them wholeheartedly. Thank you to the women who embody fierce friendships and choose to uplift one another instead of tearing others down. And thank you to the women who know their strength and take pride in it. You are all wonderful.

I was not physically at a march today, but I was definitely there in spirit. Seeing live footage and photos of everyone coming together, in a sea of pink, filled my heart. There is so much good in this world and today was exactly the reminder we needed. When people choose to promote love and hope in a peaceful manner, greatness happens. This is when love trumps hate. This is how we will continue to move our beloved country forward in a progressive and all-inclusive way. I am so lucky to be growing up in an era where so much is possible.

I am proud to be a woman. I am grateful I get to stand alongside so many diverse communities with the knowledge that it’s one’s heart that truly defines them. We are stronger than we think, especially when we come together.

Thank you to those who marched today, wherever that may have been. Your determination and hope are inspiring.

Cheers to the women who know their worth and aren’t afraid to fight for it. Keep going.

Much love – XOXO
