Today I pay tribute to you, the women who inspire me. The women I know, love and admire. The women who fearlessly crush their goals. The women who pray for me. The women who boldly and beautifully demolish glass ceilings and look photo shoot fresh whilst doing it. The women who love on us and treat my children as their own. The women who feed my soul. The women who reach a hand back to lift me up because if “I’m up, you’re up.” The women who pay it forward. Mom goals women. Photographer crush women. Entrepreneur goals women. Transparent, vulnerable you’re not alone women. You are Regal. Your crown precedes you. You are warriors. Keep kicking those barriers down. You are magic. You inspire so many just by being. Happy International Women’s Day!
Mom. I love you.
