I became a mom in 2005 and immediately joined a mother’s support group to cope and thrive in that first year of motherhood. I was nervous about going to a “support group” and wasn’t sure if it was going to be my thing. I never dreamed it would be the very place where I would meet 5 amazing women and create lasting friendships that would carry me through the next five years. I am so grateful for that support group. I am so grateful for these incredible women in my life. I can’t imagine the last five years of motherhood if I did not have each of them in my life. We have raised our kids together, celebrated birthdays together, grieved the loss of pregnancies together, visited each other in the hospital as we welcomed siblings into the world, laughed together, cried together, and stood by each other though it all.
I wanted to do something special with these women, their kindergartners and their families to celebrate our triumphs and tears over the last five years and all the years to come. What better way to celebrate kindergarten, motherhood and friendship than with an ice cream social?!? It was a true honor to have Foodbuzz sponsor this event as a part of their 24×24.
