Happy International Women’s Day!
Today we celebrate with bursts of color and pattern to honor women of all colors, shapes, sizes, creeds, and backgrounds. While not a perfect system, American women are very fortunate to reside in a country that leads the world in opportunities for advancement. There are many countries yet where women have little access to clean drinking water, a balanced diet, education, a choice of career or even their spouse. For me today is both a day to reinforce gratitude, as well as a reminder that there is much work to be done for our sisters here and abroad.

This year’s Project Yarn Bomb details:
On March 8th, the yarn bomb will grace 33 trees along a stretch of Monument Street, just north of Sunset Boulevard. Each tree is named and dedicated to a different woman in American history.
After two weeks, the yarn pieces will be collected and turned into blankets to donate to a local shelter dedicated to helping women and their families transition out of homelessness. You can learn more about Michelle and her awesome work on her blog: Home Made Mimi.
