|Is a caption even needed? Didn't think so lol|
I love being a woman! Seriously. I love being able to be strong and soft. Beautiful and sassy. Classic and trendy. Fearless and vulnerable. I feel powerful in my femininity and I seriously believe there's a crown hovering over the head of every woman waiting to be taken a hold of. Yep, it's that deep to me lol
Seeing women strive for adventure, equality, entrepreneurship and education ignites something in me. So it was only natural that I want to spend all my coins on books that speak to the boss chick in all of us ;-)

In this book, we get to hear from the mega talented Shonda Rimes (Grey's Anatomy, HTGAWM, Scandal creator) as she chronicles the year she chose to say YES rather than retreat into her natural introverted self.
