Love, Laughter and Food--Lunch with the Play Group

Today I'm taking my own advice and having some of my dearest friends over for lunch. We try to meet at a restaurant for lunch once a month or so, but this time I suggested everyone bring what they wanted to eat and meet at my house.  Most restaurants are loud and I don't want to miss a thing while we laugh and talk and get caught up on one another's lives.

I've been eagerly awaiting Big Mama's new book, 
Nobody's Cuter Than You.
It's a celebration of female friendship and as I've been reading reviews of it, I can't help but be reminded of the importance these friends of mine have had in my life.  I met them through K, who I had met in grad school.  I happened to see her at the church we had just started attending and she invited me to the new play group that she and some other moms had just started.  That was 15 years ago and we have watched our children grow up and we've moved into new homes and changed churches and started new careers---and through it all, they've just been a blessing.  And, honestly?  I've been blessed throughout my life with good friends.  The group of girls I ran around with in high school helped me navigate those awkward years and I was blessed again with another group of amazingly smart and witty and generally awesome girlfriends in college.  After college, I got caught up in work and didn't do a good job of keeping up with these ladies, but facebook has been a great way to rekindle some of those friendships.  


Like Melanie says in the video trailer for her book, strong female friendships are one of my greatest wishes for my daughter.  I hope that she is blessed with friends and I hope she stays connected with them.  These cute printables from Big Mama's blog say it all:


I hope all of you have a fabulous day--take some time to call or text that special friend today!
