International Women’s Day

In the States, March marks Women’s History Month and much of the global community observes March 8th as International Women’s Day. It’s been observed for over a century and celebrates the many advancements that have been made in gender equality, while also continuing to inspire and remind people everywhere there is more work to be done. (And before you ask, yes there is an International Men’s Day — it’s observed in November.)

So I want to take today to think about the women who inspire me the most. There’s my mom, who has pretty much always been there for me to provide love and encouragement. There’s my tia, who I haven’t seen in almost three years but is always so warm and welcoming to me when we have a chance to connect.

And of course, I have my friends. Whenever I see my girlfriends back home in South Florida, I’m left inspired and rejuvenated by their accomplishments and their passion for my life. I couldn’t ask for a better group of women to keep me grounded (especially after some of us have known each other for almost a decade!). My Fordham friends aren’t slouches either — college is nothing if not an accelerated period of growth. Suffice to say we’ve seen each other at our best and at our worst. It happens, and it’s something to appreciate.

I guess it’s a coincidence that the next couple weeks is treating me a few visitors! One of my college roommates is visiting next weekend, and the following week, three of my best friends from home are making the trip up to Philly to see my new city and me. I couldn’t feel more special — or be more excited.

Happy 6 Months!

My dearest Zamboni,

You probably don’t remember this, since you’re a dog and don’t keep a calendar, but you came home with us six months ago today. It was a long car ride up from Wilmington, but you did so well — I knew that was a good sign.

I was so happy to have you home, because it meant having company every night when your dad is off conquering the world of high school sports reporting. It meant having an exercise buddy for walks around the neighborhood (well, when it’s above freezing). It meant having a furry face lick me awake each morning I’m off from work. And even though you take up too much room in the bed, you’re worth it.

Undeniably, the best part of having you around is the extra dose of personality you bring to our home. Not that we needed it, but you know. Your oinks and roars and monthly bark crack us up. Your sarcastic faces are my favorite thing to photograph (I’ve met more dramatic dogs, but you’re the snarkiest). Your curiosity means you fit right in.

Stay cool, kid. We have many more months (and years) ahead. And don’t worry, I’m already planning your birthday for next month.

Love,
Mom
