“More girls should go on adventures”

3 Apr

You guys should read this!  🙂 

  As a young girl I never really wanted to be the ‘main’ hero, but I always wanted to go along on the adventures. I still do. Perhaps that’s why I have so many dreams of conquering the writing world, creating a few businesses, building my own kind of empire (of friends and allies), and traveling through Europe and certain parts of South America.

      Sounds like it! Adventures are important, whether they’re just exploring your back yard, or another continent.

      (Would OnionSkins be the only acceptable place for dresses like that? 😉 )
