Mom Time

After leaving home at the age of 17 for college out of state I haven't been geographically close to my family. And by close I mean the closest we ever lived was a good 7 hour drive.

For the last year and a half we have lived an hour away from my folks and I've got to say, I don't hate it.

In fact, I kind of love it.  

Because even though I'm all grown up and have kids of my own sometimes I just need my mom.

You know that friend, the one who is so amazing and smart and beautiful...and has the incredible talent of making everyone else around them feel that way amazing and smart and beautiful too? Yes? Well I got to spend time with one of those friends today as well as another amazing gal and it was wonderful. A great event, a picnic in the sunshine, good conversation, and she even threw in the best shoulder rub I've had in a long time.

Only "problem" with such a friend is that you feel so inspired and rejuvenated when you are around them that you feel like you can conquer the world! So now I have all these ideas and inspiration for my family and my blog and my work at Power of Moms and...well, my whole life. But I guess that's a good problem to have.

In the words of one of my favorite movies, "So much time and so little to do! Strike that, reverse it." (Virtual high five if you can name that reference)
