Celebrating Women

Father's Day, Mother's Day, Valentines' Day--- When I was a little girl, I told my dad, "We need a kids day!" and he'd said, "Everyday is kids day."  Yeah, right. I was soon to realize, some thirty years later, that we do have control our our days. We can make them anything we want.


Officially--- Women have a day!  
Women's Day. March 8

On Womens's Day--- men worldwide give flowers, open doors, appreciate, and embrace the women in their lives.  Oh yeah--- hug a woman today. You have an excuse!

Thanks to Mireille Goyer, Founder and International Team Leader

    What am I doing?  Getting creative.

    I am going to win the Trophy for "The Most Dedicated Pilot" 

    How am I going to do that? Well my friends, that's a surprise. A surprise because I'm still formulating my plans. But why? That I can tell you...

    An airline, that shall remain nameless, told me during an interview, "You must not be a very dedicated pilot. You only flew three times in three years."

    The year 1988, I was 26 years old during that interview. I'd given birth to my daughters in '83, '84, and '85, and started college in '83 and and graduated in '85. Three kids and a four year degree, and I only flew "3 flights" during those three years. I was kind of busy. Oh yeah--- back to those fighting words.

    Kalimar, Krysta and Kayla.. my daughters
    What I can tell you is that March 12th, we're planning a Fly It Forward Event at our World Famous Airport: KRNT  Renton, Washington. 

    We challenge you to just try to take our  Most Female Friendly Airport in the United States title.

    KRNT
    Please... try to take it from us! We just may go for the world record! Watch out Canada.

    What can you do?

    Enjoy the Journey!
