The Mag - She's All that and More


TODAY'S AMERICAN GIRL

"A real girl isn't perfect and a perfect girl isn't real."
-Harry Styles

But she has fun!




"It is easy to see that, even in the freedom of early youth
an American Girl never quite loses control of herself,
she enjoys all permitted pleasures without losing her head about any of them,
and her reason never lets the reins go, though it may be off."

 - Alexis de Tocqueville


If I Were to Call it Like I See Today
for Many American Girls
(especially since I am one)

This Would Be It!





Without a doubt
an American Girl
Votes.
Causes carry more clout
than the party
for the American Girl.






The American Girl's view on religion- 
Is Freedom of choice- 
often following old roots 
worn well, through the ages.



"I like the silent church before the service begins, better than any preaching." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

and kindness for all.





The American Girl was born in the age of Tree People.

So yes, of course she plants trees- 
at home or in honor of others. 





Laughter is America's most important export."
 - Walt Disney


The American Girl believes
 in carrying out yesterday's traditions, 
modernly and wholeheartedly.
The American Girl believes.



"Oh no! Runaway paper turkey.  "You can't catch me!" - Gobble..gobble...gobble.

(She does cook the real deal for Thanksgiving Day dinner!) Ha! Ha!



The American Girl doesn't just play house anymore
she lives that old roll
promising life with her won't ever be a bore.



Today's American Girl
doesn't just bend the rules
she rewrites her own rules.
She sets trends.



Not to forget the American Girl
hears nature's music
dances in the rain
never loses her way 
never hides
but runs
through a forest wilderness
singing mostly-
and snapping photos
everywhere she goes.

Lastly for this American Girl- from snow-country


-just as soon as the first fresh new snow falls, she-


-shapes for herself a winter-buddy of course!

Now that's a good start
 to even begin to describe 
all that an American Girl is. 
Just never ever forget, 
we are proud to be an American Girl, 
every single day.

When I think "American Girl," I think of that doll that sends shivers down men's back and fear to their wallets... Or maybe the Guess Who, that Canadian band, and their song, "American Woman"

Lovely words.
American can be replaced with "modern" & can imply any girl of our world :)

Well, I think apart for a couple of minor details (like the flag) that would be a pretty good bunch of aspirations for 'international girl' too! Loved the picture with the flag - of course! Great post - made me smile - thank you.
