I just had to share this post I found about the meaning of International Women’s Day. Thanks to Judy Leigh for her thoughts on the importance of not only women, but all people, and the best way to love and care for others, by starting with yourself.
Today is International Women’s Day and there’s much debate about whether we need a day to celebrate all women.

I’ve recently begun watching the original Vampire Diaries series on Netflix, and am loving the supernatural soap opera that has plenty of paranormal romance, intrigue, and action for the human and supernatural citizens of Mystic Falls.

“This is a story of magic, of secrets and betrayals, first loves and first heartbreaks. It’s a story of friendship and family, of battling our own demons so we can face the monsters around us.
