She came over yesterday with all her kids and talked to me while I folded laundry and unloaded the dishwasher. Then she tried my homemade kombucha for me, because I was too scared to try it myself. She helped me chop apples for applesauce and we took all our kids for a walk in the woods in the rain.
When we get together with all the kids, it’s loud, chaotic and just a bit crazy. It’s not as simple as it used to be when we’d walk many, many miles each week with our babies in strollers. But, whether it’s slightly chaotic or not, friendship must still go on because life was meant to be done together, not peacefully isolated.
Today, if you’re thankful for someone, tell them. And if you want to get to know someone better, but life isn’t all shiny and pretty…..do it anyway.
I’ve decided that real people are my favorite- people with laundry and messes and vulnerable hearts. And playdates with lots of loud kids, and Moms scared to try their own weird homemade things. These are the things life should be made of.
To celebrate friendship and adventure, we’re partnering with one of my new FAVORITE companies, to bring you a really fun giveaway.
