I keep thinking about the monumental ways in which #MeghanMarkle’s life has changed & what that must be like for her & her family . All the blessings & challenges that come with being a part of the most famous, yet deeply traditional families in the world . Meghan Markle is a much needed, new example of what a Duchess looks like, allowing for a more inclusive Monarchy for the first time ever . It gives me hope when I get to witness the change of an old system , and today’s historic wedding was certainly a game changer !
In honor of Megan and Harry ( and my birthday today ) our friends had a little Royal Wedding Party ! #Megan&Harry 🎂
The loves of my life . #Atlanta #Ella #Silvan #Mothersday2018
Oh motherhood !!! A beautiful mix of joys and hardships , moments of the most profound love I have ever known and also despair and soul crushing isolation ... Motherhood has been my greatest teacher and motivator to heal .I do it imperfectly , a day at a time , sometimes a moment at a time . I do it with honesty , commitment , and allowing myself to never buy into the completely dishonest narrative that motherhood is a breeze where there are no forgotten school lunches , month old chipped nail polish , un-waxed legs , emails not returned for way too long and cancelled dinners because my bedtime is often at the same time as my kids. Motherhood is messy . At least mine is . So,happy Mothers Day to all the moms , mom figures , people who are without a mom or are estranged from theirs . But an especially Happy day to my tribe of Messy Moms ! 📸 by @MarioSorrenti taken the day before I gave birth to my twins Ella and Silvan .
Never underestimate the collective power of women . #Repost@usowomen Today at #Cannes, 82 women in film climbed the steps of the Palais in silence and stopped halfway to raise awareness about the fact that in the Cannes Film Festival’s 71-year history, there have been just 82 women directors to climb the stairs (compared to 1,688 male directors), and to call for #5050by2020. 📷: @gettyentertainment
I had the honor of being photographed by the incredibly talented @zoeygrossman , and interviewed by the equally brilliant @fariha_roisin for @thevioletbook . I love having the opportunity to work with women who I personally respect and admire . Thanks Ladies for hooking a sister up ! 💗
I just want to say a huge resounding “Yessssss “ to this exciting news today . We need more women with their own shows , controlling the content and messages they want to amplify . @busyphilipps I jumped up and down for joy and I know you will be so great in this new role . Huge , giant congrats my sister from another mister !!!!!! 😘💋🙋👏🏻 #LateNightLadies
Life has been so hectic lately with work , kids , an E.R visit and general messy moments . It’s been months since I stopped and spent time with this one & even longer since I picked up my camera and took a picture . Here’s Mr.V on a sunny Saturday with both kids out the house , which NEVER happens . #HubbyMoment

Often people ask me to share important “ things to know “ that you won’t learn in school .So @girlgaze made a series with our friends @AdobeStudents featuring some bad ass CEO’s and kindly included me !

Today is a monumental day for our family . Those of you who know me personally , know my sister @victoriamahoney . Since the very beginning Victoria was quite literally born to tell stories . She’s one of the most profound and jaw dropping directors that ever was . She’s making history today by being the first WOC and the first female to ever direct #2ndUnit on #StarWarsE9 . It’s not easy to be a #First . But it’s a huge win for each and everyone one of us who was told “ no “ time and time again . And again .... The outliers are finally taking over !
What better honor is there that this one . To be recognised and honoured for being of service in such an impactful and powerful way . @jodikantor I know a little of what went into the stories you and Megan brought into the world . And I’m Forever in awe of your undying commitment to unearthing the truth and creating a new reality for women and girls . So very proud of you Jodi !!!!!! 👏🏻🙋💗 . #pulitzerprizewinner
I know what I’ll be doing on Tues night . This is going to be an extra special episode because @traceeellisross is at the helm . Proud of you !!! #femalefilmmakerfriday

Happy Easter !! I bought this book not only because it’s a Sweet and needed story , but because as @iamjohnoliver says , nothing pisses #mikepense off like decency, tolerance and advocacy ! #BetterBundoBook.com
Happy Birth Day to my first born beloved @atlantabean . There is nothing more fulfilling than watching you flourish . We L💗VE you so much Bean. 🎂💗💋😘
Anyone who has met my beloved Sis @victoriamahoney knows what a bad ass director and woman she is ... “Girl drove two towns to meet me at a panel & kept smiling as tears mounted. I asked, why the tears? Her parents said they wouldn't pay for film school because there aren't any working directors who look like her. She said, now I can go home & tell them I MET ONE.” | Repost by Director @victoriamahoney 🎥#femalefilmmakerfriday #girlgaze
As a daughter-in-law of a female restauranteur and sister-in-law to a chef, I am all too familiar with the inequality in the restaurant industry. Women chefs earn 28% less in base pay than their male counterparts. We can help make the restaurant industry a more equal place for women by dining at or ordering from women-led restaurants. I support #EqualPay #RestaurantHER @grubhub #Grubhubpartner
