Happy Women's Day!

"International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. It is an occasion for looking back on past struggles and accomplishments, and more importantly, for looking ahead to the untapped potential and opportunities that await future generations of women."

Today I wish to connect with all my blogging friends around the world to celebrate the Woman's Day.
In Italy, where I was born, we have the custom to give to all women we love mimosas, a flower which blossoms in the first days of march. Here in Germany you cannot find them at this time of the year, and so I send them virtually to all the fantastic women I have met in the last year since I started blogging.

Please take this flower a s sign of my high esteem of your creativity, your interior and exterior beauty, the love and warmth you spread all over the world. I'm convinced that every woman has the possibility and the duty to make this world a better place, regardless if she prepares a special meal for her family, writes a beautiful and comforting card to a friend in hospital, creates something extraordinary with her own hands or caresses a baby. We all have endless potential to love and care if we only manage to free it.

Be yourself today. Take some minutes off to connect with your friends and loved ones. Make yourself a special gift like trying a new perfume or browsing through inspiring magazines in the railway station bookstore.
Celebrate Woman's Day today and everyday!
