#WhyIMarch(ed): My Favorite Photos from the Women's March on Washington

I went. I marched. 

And, it was the proudest I've felt for my country since November.

There were singing and chanting. There were signs and speeches. There was a whole lot of standing and waiting. I was too far to hear the speeches, but it was amazing just to be present. There was a community marching together. And, there was hope. Women gathered in sisterhood all over the world. Men, too. It was an amazing and beautiful day.

Struggling to be part of the moment and wanting to capture it all was hard. But, here are a few photos that I took that are my favorite.

What to Do Northeast Ohio | January 19 - 25, 2017

Fun, family friendly events in CLE and Northeast Ohio #EatPlayLiveCLE

This happened last week!

I spent Saturday hanging out with Friends and making signs for the Women's March on Washington. Are you going?

That's It! I'm Going to DC for the Women's March

All 50 states (and even some outside the U.S.) will have a march for those who can't go to Washington D.C. I've added the three sister marches that are happening in Northeast Ohio. I may be partial, but the on Public Square seems the place to be!

Can't wait to see what happens this weekend! 

Bucket List - Family Friendly Events in Northeast Ohio 
The bucket list calendar is a list of fun things we would like to do in Northeast Ohio if we had unlimited time and money. Some are free, most are not, and be sure to call all events prior to attending, just in case I have some information wrong or it was canceled.

There was a time in my life that I didn't think of myself as a Feminist.

It was my mother's fault. She made feminism seem negative. Men wouldn't want me. I'd never get married. "Keep your head down," she told me. "Lose weight," my dad told me.


3 of My Favorite Homemade Valentines

I adore valentines!

I sometimes wish the Hubs would run out and buy a box of those store bought ones, just to give me one. Yes, this is silly but I just adore them!

I'm also a fan of the make-your-own variety. Over the years we've made a few!

Here are three of my favorites (plus one) and the links so you can make them yourselves.

Thank you
