Being a girl mom is so special. There is a Blakely and I have a connection that I didn’t even know was out there. Like every mom I am constantly thinking about who she is gonna be when she is older and how I can help shape her. One thing I want her to know is she always has a voice, and she should use that voice.
Gosh I feel it you guys, this year is going to be another big year for women. More than ever I feel we need to be women trendsetters our daughters. This topic has been on my mind the last week especially probably because I’ve been reading about Nellie Ross. If you don’t know who she is well you are about to find out!
People who know me will tell you I am so proud to be American. I am also proud to come from the great state of Wyoming! Wyoming is a state that is often over looked but people should know Wyoming was a trendsetter for women’s rights. January 5, 1925 Nellie Ross was elected the first woman governor in the nation, talk about a trendsetter for women! She was known as “ever feminine, never a feminist” and a woman in politics who had not “lost her womanliness.” Interesting Right!!!
So we all agree 2017 was a POWERFUL year for females everywhere! My hope in 2018 is that women can continue to be positive trendsetters for women’s rights. We need to keep encouraging women everywhere to be outspoken in what they want at work, home, in relationships, in our kids school and even what we see on the pages of fashion magazines! As a woman and a mom to a beautiful little girl, I know it is my job to instill this trendsetter attitude in her mind and heart.
Hope you all have a fantastic week!
