My very dearest friends and I are planning to have some girlfriend time. Co-ordinating a day between us is easier said than done, but we do, eventually. We try to catch up regularly but as you all know life gets so busy with little families & living so far away from each other makes the odd coffee quite a challenge.
It's so easy to become totally consumed by our own frantic lives, a catch up inevitably gets squashed way down the bottom of the priority list, that's just the way it is. I think we completely underestimate just how vital that time with our besties is. It's great to sit around and chat, share the highs & lows that are going on in our lives, re connecting & remembering who we were before we were mum's & wives and all that comes with that.
Spending time with my girlfriends is like food for the soul. I have known these beautiful women since school days, some since primary school, and regardless of where our lives might take us, or how long it is between visits, I know they will always remain a constant & integral part of my life.
I look forward to seeing our kids grow up like family, being part of everyone's milestones & sharing in all the most special of occasions. I am blessed to have these amazing women in my life and I feel so very privileged to call them my friends. I love them deeply & I treasure their company, so it's off to make those plans...
