“I believe it’s important for women to be reminded of who they are. Every day, we are reminded that we are mothers, wives, professionals, etc. But something that gets overlooked FAR too often is being reminded of who we are inside. Who we were before we were mothers and wives. We are beautiful, we are intelligent, we are witty and fun.“
