oh happy day

here's to all the business women | craftswomen | rockstar women in your lives - cheers!

it's true - today is international women's day. not entirely sure what that means for me but I'm up for it. I've tried to visit the movement's site to read up on the idea but I keep getting the same error message: "The request cannot be processed at this time. The amount of traffic exceeds the Web site's configured capacity".  I'll take it as a good sign.

if that isn't enough reason to celebrate how about the fact that it's currently 70* here in boston and daylight saving time is less than 72 hours away (you have no idea how happy this makes me). I'll be marking this trifecta by meeting up with a couple of women tonight for drinks. my friend leslie is a fellow hockey mom and a big supporter of seagrass studio. at christmastime she gave me a sweet, handmade gnome and tonight she's bringing her friend susan, the craftswoman behind forest mother. I'm anxious to talk to her about her successful etsy business and in turn, she'd like to learn about the web design course I took last year. in general we'll be toasting all the women of 'no mom left behind'.

PS - the roses above were a gift to myself. $9.99 for 18 stems at costco - how could I resist?
