Three Ways Frozen’s Elsa Taught My Daughter to be a Strong Woman


Hi followers and friends. It’s December 1! Can you even believe it? I am still in shock over how fast this year has passed. Anyways…I have a fun post up on Red Tricycle about Disney princesses and how they influence our kids personalities. Would love some views, comments, and shares! This was a neat article to write and I really got to explore a more childlike side of myself while writing about my preschooler’s take on femininity based on Elsa’s character in Frozen. Hop on over and check it out. I promise that you’ll be super entertained!

As always, thanks for your faithfulness to read my words. I don’t take your loyalty for granted. I appreciate you!

Here’s a bit from the article:

“As you very well know, strong women are in dire need these days. The Elsas of the world need to rise up to their full potential and fearlessly behold their strength in the face of ice-cold circumstances. Take this challenge from my spunky three-nager and repeat these words out loud until you believe it: “I know I can!” Then sing your way into victory! (You know you want to.)”

What’s your fave Disney princess? Do you see some of her characteristics in yourself? Leave me a comment (after you have read the piece) and let me know for some good ol’ fashioned fun. 🙂 Happy Thursday!

What Once Was…

I just discovered that my fave female singer, Sara Bareilles, has a new song out and I’m ecstatic! She not only has amazing pipes but she sings with such emotion and her lyrics are mesmerizingly good.

Which means I had to share this video. The song talks about a woman who is mourning the loss of her younger self because of the toll life has taken on her.

Can anyone relate? I know I can.

So here’s to the younger version of myself- I raise a glass to your innocence, your radiance, your resilience. And here’s to the woman I am now- cheers for sticking it out and not giving up. Life may have thrown some stones at you but you haven’t quit.

I accept who I was then and I accept who I am now.
Time may have changed me but one thing will always stay the same: I keep going. 

And that’s worth celebrating.
