I have to apologize for today’s food photos. I wasn’t very patient with the camera and my food wasn’t very nice to look at. But, I am documenting all the same
After a casual stroll on the treadmill I had an afternoon snack of a Vita Muffin (part of my hunker down stash).
Valentine’s Day is this Sunday. My mom’s birthday is actually Feb. 14th, so I think of her more than anything on this day. Usually the BF (now husband) celebrate another day.
But the day has an even bigger, very important message related to it – V Day. VDay is a global movement to end violence against women and girls. Events are planned throughout the world. Check it out here.
I saw the Vagina Monologues with my mom a few years back and thought it was cool. But, more than that I love that a group is making efforts to educate people about and stop violence against women – it is tragic how common rape and female circumcision are in our world.
I feel helpless to make any kind of difference, but becoming educated and spreading the world that this is unacceptable is something, right? I want to do more though…
