Sometimes a girl just needs good friends. And wine. And cookies. It's like the trinity of amazingness.
Last night was one of those evenings when all three came together. A planned MNO - or Mom's Night Out.
10 wonderful women came together with 8 dozen cookies each to exchange. A delicious pot luck was enjoyed. Laughter was exchanged. And the conversation was delightful.
I'm so blessed to know these women. Each strong, beautiful, and wonderful in her own way. I met them initially online - in a natural family/parenting forum. They've served as a lifeline of sorts. Even when I'm unable to get together with them on a regular basis - knowing that there are women, mothers, families out there with similar interests and parenting styles to ours makes me feel less isolated.

I love my crunchy mama friends. I love their advice, their opinions, their encouragement, and their understanding. Some I've known now for over a year, others I've just recently met. And I consider myself blessed to know them all.

Thank you mamas, for an evening of laughter, food, and just a wee bit too much wine for me. This last picture is proof that I don't handle my wine as well as I used to.
Yours in the camaraderie of motherhood
