This past weekend, 6 other moms and I headed to North Carolina to spend the weekend at Laura's house from various places on the East Coast (and Texas). I was so excited to go and last Friday couldn't come fast enough. I was also a little nervous to go as I have never been away from Katie overnight since she was born almost 3 years ago! I knew she would be in good hands with Todd so off I went.
I was great to see these ladies, some that I had met before and others that I was meeting for the first time. I have found, as I meet more and more women that I know from the internet, that it's like seeing a long lost friend. You already know about their lives but it's still great to catch up in person. The weekend was everything I hoped it would be, which was relaxing, fun and filled with good eating! It was nice to be able to spend more than a few hours together too.
A huge thank you goes out to Laura (and Jon) for opening their house to all of us. Another huge thank you goes out to my wonderful and amazing husband, Todd, for watching the kids and letting me have this time to recharge. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet so many of these women in person and hope to meet more in years to come.
