I am Julie,
daughter of Annetta,
daughter of Margaret,
daughter of Elizabeth,
daughter of Anna,
daughter of Magdalena...
This is as far as I can trace
my matrilineage back right now.
My daughters and granddaughter
extend this line into the future.
A few years ago I discovered Mother's Day
is a great time to visit Yosemite Valley.
This year I discovered Mother's Day is a
great time to visit Blanding, Utah. I have
more pictures and stories about my recent
travels, but right now the women in
my life are on my mind.
President Obama had some important
things to say about women recently
and if you are so inclined, you can find
his commencement address to the
Barnard College Class of 2012
