W.O.W. Group-Session 8




W.O.W. (Women of Worth) is one of my favorite groups!! The group focuses on self-esteem, body image, self worth, etc. If you haven't already read the previous W.O.W. Sessions click on the following links: Session 1Session 2Session 3Session 4,  Session 5, Session 6, Session 7

Session 8 is the last session of W.O.W. so I like to end it on a really good note. Session 8 focuses on giving and receiving compliments. We watch a short video talking about compliments and then the girls get to try it out themselves. They all give and receive about 5 compliments. It's a great little self-esteem boost for them!

14 Souvenirs That Don't Suck



How would you define "souvenir"?? Well I would define a souvenir as anything that reminds you of your travels. It really doesn't have to be anything expensive or fancy...just something that reminds you of a happy time and puts a smile on your face.

 My mom bought a pair of socks on one of her trips to Chicago because the socks she had on kept falling down inside of her shoe....super annoying when you're trying to walk around town. So she stopped at a store and bought herself a pair of $30 socks....hahaha...the most expensive pair of socks she's ever owned. She didn't buy them as a souvenir, she bought them so she could enjoy the rest of her day...but now every time she wears them she says "Oh my Chicago socks."  Would I call my mom's socks a souvenir?? Yep!! haha...I wouldn't call it a great souvenir...but it does bring back a happy memory for her.  

Below are a list of 14 souvenirs that don't completely suck...I mean they're better than collecting thimbles at least.
