Prioritizing Girl Time

January 21, 2014


I’m so lucky to have really great girlfriends!!!  I’ve been part of a book club for almost two years, and from the beginning I knew how great it was to meet up with other women to gossip, to eat, to drink, to laugh, and to cry (every once in a while it happens). Before Annabelle I never had to prioritize girl time.  It just seemed to happen.  But since I’ve had a baby I realize more than ever how important it is to make time for girlfriends.  Sometimes it’s just getting together on a Sunday for an hour for a drink at the grocery store with a couple of girls, but that time is worth more than any amount of money.

I really look forward to those random Sundays that we find the time together or the Friday lunches or the monthly Book Club gatherings.  Even though there are nights that I’m exhausted and just want to go to bed (and Book Club is probably the last thing I need to be doing), but I know that if I just put some comfy pants on, grab a bottle of wine, and go that I’ll have some great laughs and it’s exactly what I need.  And it’s so true, I’ll come home, lay down and smile, saying a little thank you for the wonderful girlfriends I have.  And above is a picture from a couple months ago at one of our Book Club gatherings.

    So, so true! My monthly book club gathering is one of my most cherished evenings. Sometimes it’s hard to pull yourself away from family time, but you always need your girls!

    Erin, glad to hear other women think it’s good for our souls to get away and spend time with girlfriends every once in a while!

    We are a pretty awesome group of people to hangout with, and probably the most attractive group of book readers too!! 🙂
