Absolutly doing this come summer

Love and Lavender
A "Thankful for Friends Party"?!? What could be more fun and appropriate on a warm summer day? Check out the party and all the details here and here.

I'm working on being a better friend this year. I'm known as a person with few, albeit, close friends. However, I tend to keep to myself most of the time. Ever since I can remember the thought of staying the night at a friend's house felt foreign and not appealing. Yet I love getting together with a bunch of creative, inspiring, and strong women.

"Being a better friend" is hard to define, but I'm working on it. I'm trying to call more often, plan outings that don't revolve around coffee or lunch, and just being more open to hanging out. I'm not sure why it's hard for me to just "hang out" with friends. (Ryan and I are so alike in this way.)

So, this is my goal: I will have a "Thankful for Friends Party" this summer celebrating my dear friends who keep me grounded, sane, inspired, and laughing.


So many opinions

@22 Weeks
Ryan and I have learned that babies bring all sorts of unsolicited advice and warnings. However, the most annoying interesting are the nay-sayers. You know, those people who like to squash your ideas about your birthing plan, cloth diapers, and the hopes of a toy free living room. I realize Ryan and I don't have children. I realize that we are being idealistic. I want others to realize that we can be.

On a lighter note, our new bathroom and bedroom are so close to being finished. We should be moving in on Monday. We had our first Bradley Birthing class this last week; I'm so excited we found a space that values our commitment to a non medicated birth. So, here's to another great weekend of home improvement and reading my new Sun magazine that arrived yesterday. Yeah.
