Since we’re on the subject of empowering women at AWTR, allow me to share info about a fun magazine that I thoroughly enjoy, when I’m lucky enough to come across it. It is not a military resource- you may have figured that out when I said “fun magazine.” (Wait! That’s not to say that military resources can’t be fun- think Military Spouse Magazine, for example.) Anyway, I’m talking about skirt! magazine.
Here’s what they have to say about themselves
skirt! is all about women…their work, play, families, creativity, style, health and wealth, bodies and souls. skirt! is an attitude…spirited, independent, outspoken, serious, playful and irreverent, sometimes controversial, always passionate.
It is a great empowerment tool. I have learned about community healthfairs, local holes-in-the-wall to rejeuvenate, great books, and so much more. It empowers my spirit and my mind.
For now, it is a regional magazine that covers from Charlotte, NC to Jacksonville, FL. But don’t dismay, their website is out there for all the rest of you that don’t live in the Southeast. At www.skirtmag.com you can see all about their passions: good books, fun columnists, environmental frontiers, funky jewelry; you name it. Check it out there or just visit to subscribe so you can read their issues in the comfort of your own home/get-away.
Next week I’ll try to give equal time to something fun, creative, and military related. But today, even though I’m an Army Wife, I’m a Woman first and I wanted to share with you all what I’m putting my feet up with this summer.
