|Brazen Apron meets|
|Drinks with R., the B-day girl|
The other day I had another opportunity to spend quality time with one of my home girls. I took her out for belated birthday drinks. We talked, we drank (we are really good at doing that together. We're 3 bottle friends), and we bonded as women. This woman always has a smile on her face. Her motto in life is "I just want to have fun". Who can argue with that? She works full time, has a little boy, made it through a remodel with her sanity in tact, and continues... to keep a smile on her face. I love spending time with her. She reminds me how simple attitude is. Attitude is simple, but it's worth a lot.
I don't spend nearly enough time with other women. I wish I did. I wish I knew more women. There is something to be said about the benefits of quality time with them. I'm not talking Real Housewives type of women. I'm talking about real, honest women. If you have women friends, meet for coffee, go out to lunch, take your kids for a walk. Spend time with each other. It is so important. I mean, we blog, we Facebook, we twitter, we email, but we don't see and connect nearly enough.
So phone a friend and invite her over for mimosas. You never realize how important real, tangible friendships are until you don't have them. Take care of your friendships. Nurture them, water them (with booze, obviously), give them sunlight and love. We're the only ones who really know what we're going through.
Go, bond with your women friends.
