    I am envious of her relationship with her family. I have two sisters and one brother and don’t feel particularly close to any of them. Not everyone is lucky enough to have such a great family.

    Amanda, thanks so much for sharing this kind of frank, honest, adorably sexy POV…am 1 of 3 sisters, less than 2 years between each of us, and Zoe’s interviews hit home each time–for every member of our family. Even Dad. 🙂 Strength, courage, unity, personality…these are the women this generation need to look to, and learn from. xox.

    I consider my biggest achievement thus far in life to be my kids. Trying to raise strong, confident and happy kids is a tough job. (Granted some days I do it way better than others!) Now that my kids are getting bigger I look forward to seeing what my future achievements outside of the family will be.

    I was surprised by Zoe’s take no shit stance to life. She is a strong confident woman, who has unwavering beliefs. I love the relationship she describes to have with her sisters. I wish I had that too. My sibling relationships are a bit dysfunctional:( I love that Zoe is not afraid to use the f-bomb. I like a girl that can say fuck!

    I am married to my high school sweetheart, so I never had any issues introducing a romantic interest to my family. Luckily, my parents always loved him. In fact I think they might like him more than me!
