At the age of fourteen I started to take life more seriously. What a formidable time in life! Now that I am Eleanor’s godmother and auntie, I want to join her, help her, be there for her as she grows into a sweet girl and later, a young woman. And I thank my mom (and a select few other great women) who saw me through those sometimes bumpy years.
Below are a few pieces that really helped me navigate life as a teenager. It is certainly not exhaustive and could of course be enjoyed by ladies over 18.
