Girl Power (and Links)

happy friday - girl power


Happy Friday! In honor of Joan Rivers, this week's Happy Friday column is all about girl power!

Until recently, I didn't know much about Joan Rivers. But she holds a special place in my travel memories...

I was living in Provence with my girls - Dan was still back in Seattle, so I was parenting solo. While the girls were in school, I spent my days exploring the region and trying to speak French without embarrassing myself. It was challenging and thrilling and I loved it!

But it was also exhausting. By the end of the day, I desperately needed to shut off my brain.

And in walked Joan Rivers. Nearly every night after I put the girls to bed, I would pour myself a little limoncello and watch Fashion Police on E! Television. No matter how deer-in-the-headlights I felt, she made me laugh and feel a bit braver. :)

Another ballsy woman: the evolution of Peggy Olsen.

The best music video we've seen in a long, long time.

The girls love this song.

Still have questions? Ask Lena.

Have a great weekend!
