On Becoming Lovely
I fully admit that the idea for this blog was born from another blog, one of my very favorites to read and follow called On How to be Lovely. This blog is dedicated to women in all stages of life.
Looking at my life you wouldn't know me to be a feminist. After all, I'm a stay at home mom, a full time homemaker. That doesn't exactly scream modern woman. Well, I am. I am an advocate for Women's rights and I believe wholeheartedly that women can accomplish anything they so desire. The tagline for Becoming Lovely is "Making your Life Monumental." I LOVE that. There are so many small and simple things we can all do to make our lives a little more monumental. So it's time to GO AND DO (not sit and stew).
I don't believe womanhood stops at motherhood. I believe every woman should embrace everything she is from quirky to sexy. Some people think that losing yourself in motherhood makes you a better mother. I believe bringing your own sassy flare to motherhood helps bond you to your children and helps you to seem more human in their eyes.
Today I want everyone to explore Becoming Lovely and to write down three things you want your children to remember about you. My three things (today) are:
1) That I am very passionate about education...not just about teaching and learning but the politics of it, teachers rights, crazy parents, etc.
2) That I love to read and that I make special, unique connections with characters and that almost every book I read makes me cry.
3) Otter pops rule and I will never deny myself when it comes to this icy treat.
What are your three things? Please comment! Don't forget to visit www.becominglovely.blogspot.com (Follow and become a facebook fan! You won't regret!)
