While celebrating #WomensHistoryMonth it not only reminds me that ladies are smarter than men but also that when women succeed #America succeeds.
Instead of castling it Women's History Month. Why not Women's Future Month?

I’m also celebrating every female who has faced the effects of marginalization.

These images are the women in my life, with the exception of my late grandmoms Tete, and Caridad, and my MoM Margarita.

From top to bottom are Elenita, Elena, Natasha, Rosie, and Sabrina.

February 29 is Leap Day. No, don’t start jumping just yet, this has nothing to do with frogs or ballet. It has to do with catching up to the Gregorian calendar and the rotation of the sun.

According to the Gregorian calendar which is the most widely used civil calendar in the world, and it's a day that takes place mostly during years that are divisible by four.

So, years including 2004, 2008, and 2012 were leaping years, and this year, we're celebrating leap day again.
