There are more and more beautiful and strong women in our 'pop culture' to watch ... beyond music and fashion. Clearly, this one chapter inspired my desire to share what I just shared with you - with Caitlin. You will do. Don't usually have a STRONG desire to speak directly to the author, but I do with Caitlin. A compliment to her personal style. I connected...
