#365feministselfie November

November was quite a month! The season's first snow fell, and melted away. Delilah turned 5. (There was bunny cake and Chuck E. Cheese involved.) My baby brother signed his Letter of Intent to play Division 1 College Baseball. My husband and I started a 30 day fitness challenge (today is day 16 of working out every. single. day.). We enjoyed a relaxing Thanksgiving. We procured and decorated our tree and I didn't even twitch when Ty put the lights on in a way I would not and Canon put every single musical instrument ornament on one branch. My husband found his class ring and slipped it on my finger and asked me to be his girl. I celebrated my love for scarves and deepened my love for having pretty nails. I snuggled my (not-so) babies and giggled with them. It was a good month, busy and full in the best ways. 


This is usually the spot where I mention what this photo project, and the community that has grown from it, has meant to me. I can hardly believe we are already nearing the end of this year of selfies, this year of friendship and sisterhood, sharing laughter and tears, celebrating births and mourning deaths, lifting each other up, working through conflicts, and growing as women. As feminists.

All of this has taken place over the internet, and we are looking forward to taking our online relationships to a deeper level by meeting in person for two conferences in 2015. Our group is diverse in every possible way, and in order to ensure that those of us with less means have the opportunity to attend, we are raising funds via an online auction. I donated an item made with my own two hands, as did many of the other women in the group. Check it out and do some holiday shopping while supporting a good cause!
