Hello and welcome to the very first post from The Daughters Journal. I am so excited that we are both here!
Now as you may, or perhaps may not, have noticed, our website has had a brand spanking new update and I like to think we’re looking much more swish and professional with links through to our Etsy shop, our social media and our new journal.
The idea for The Daughters Journal came about a wee while ago whilst I was still in India on a train coming back from Kochi. The train was delayed and we were slowly creeping our way through stations and along tracks, snatches of sounds from the life we were passing by coming in through the open windows. I was thinking about the women I worked with and how lucky I was to know so many amazing characters. I thought about the shear variety of personalities, talents, stories and passions that they possess and I felt so happy that I wanted to shout about it! The core of Daughters is to celebrate and empower women from all walks of life and where better to start than with my amazing girl gang?! We are all better off when we support each other and I find listening to the hopes and experiences of others a huge boost. It makes me feel braver, stronger and happier when I hear about someone I love being a badass at whatever they have chosen to do.
So this is what The Daughters Journal is. A way of sharing the Daughters journey and the stories of the women I surround myself with. I hope that here you will find a place of inspiration, joy and comradery. We are all Daughters afterall.
