A few years ago I started writing a book – The DIY Princess. Like many of us I grew up being read fairy tales and watching Cinderella or Lady in Red movies. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to be saved by Prince Charming? But the truth is, life is far from a fairy tale…or is it? As women, here in our North American first world, though there have been and will continue to be for some time, struggles, challenges and injustice, we can create the lives we dreamed of.
