{this moment}: the day of the girl

{this moment}
A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see.

Mommy’s little helper

While Charlie and I had fun picking through clearance items at Target, around the world other girls are not leading nearly such charmed lives. That’s why it’s important for events like today, the International Day of the Girl Child. If you haven’t yet, please take the time to watch Jon Stewart’s interview with Malala Yousafzai. HuffPo has a great article by a woman who was sold as a child to her adopted mother on the street. You can also learn more about the day here. You can read more about non-profits that support girls’ education like the Malala Fund and 10×10 (I wrote more about them in March when I saw the film Girl Rising).
