* The world celebrated International Women’s Day this past week, and since I am one, (and Ed loves them) I want to share a blog post from Stack that celebrates both women AND creativity! I’m a magazine lover to my core so this list of 10 Independent Women’s Magazines Everyone Should Read is the stuff of my dreams. (Number 7 is a personal fave…) Happy reading!
