It’s Good to be a Girl

I can think of so many reasons it’s good to be a girl.  You get to play dress-up, wear make-up, be a girly girl OR a tomboy, be a sister, be a mom, be fierce, be the heart of the family, be the soccer mom, be the working mom, be the strong single mom, AND SO MUCH MORE.  But honestly, those are all one sided and to put it bluntly – all about US.  Another reason it’s good to be a girl ((and one of the best reasons in my opinion)), is because girls truly share the joys and burdens of one another and there is no relationship out there like the one you have with other women.

We are always told to be strong, independent, and can be anything we want to be.  I think those are admirable characteristics of course, but it is also important to lean on one another and celebrate with one another!  That’s what girlfriends are for, right?!

While it was not my plan to be single for the last 5 years, it has also given me lots of time to invest in the relationships with my girlfriends.  I’m not saying that someone in a relationship can’t also fully invest in a friendship, but I know I personally throw myself into things 100% and tend to devote myself to the fullest to a few things in my life.  Like ALL women, I am always BUSY!  But my girlfriends ((and mom and sisters!)) have been there with me through it all.

You know who/what else has been with me through it all?  VERA BRADLEY.  I guarantee if you try and think of brands that have stuck with you since you were little and take you all the way into motherhood, Vera would be on that list.  Their most recent re-branding’s major goal has been to target millennials like us who grew up using Vera duffel’s for sleepovers and crossbody’s for vacations and stopped using their product until we were the age we needed baby bags and luggage.  It was time to fill in that gap – and boy did they!  I kid you not when I say that over half the purses in my closet are Vera and every time I wear one I get a compliment.  Seriously!
