Most will agree, as we get older our lives become more complicated. With work, children, relationships and other life obligations finding time to spend with friends can be difficult. It can be near impossible when your best friends live all over the country. However, I strongly believe the best way to reconnect to your true self and therefore being the best version of yourself is to make time to see those who know you at your core. For me, this is my friends. I have a small group of friends from growing up, college and now living in Dallas. I treasure these relationships and do not take them for granted. I may not talk to them every day but they are "my people".
My college friends and I have started a tradition, no matter what is going on in our lives we get together every other year. This sounds like nothing but it is very hard for all of us to leave our families and or jobs. Narrowing down a date is the first step in a long planning process. Once we FINALLY do that (the hardest part), location is next.
For me, the hardest part is still to come. Prepping my husband to watch our three kids for 2 nights. He is a great dad, but I definitely do the most with the kids, so I have to pass along all my expertise to him. Basically I tell him to have a great time waking up 5 times every night :)
Next, the fun part- packing! I love packing cute outfits that don't have to be kid friendly! I get to break out the small purses (no diapers!) and fun tops that won't have runny noses wiped all over them and cute dresses that won't be tugged on! Check out some of the fun things I am bringing!
