The stars aligned last weekend when I took off solo to meet up with two of my oldest and dearest friends of which I haven't seen since before the boys were born. We all left husbands, boyfriend, and children at home to spend two nights at Pismo Beach and shopping shenanigans in San Luis Obispo. The round trip drive through the gorgeous hills and plains all alone
listening to Fresh Air podcasts (nerd alert) without anyone needing anything from me
from the backseat was kind of amazing. Ah....heaven. And whoa, the amount of laughing that went on between us was ridiculous but not at all unexpected. But totally and completely needed.
