I realized while browsing and catching up that it's these little outings and get-togethers that build community. It's the trips to the park and the living room playdates that help you feel connected and in this overwhelming and amazing experience that is motherhood I am learning that connectivity is crucial. Answering your phone, getting out of the house, and communing with people who care should be a weekly requirement for mothers (or at least this mother). We hibernated for a long time after Ezra was born and quite a bit of that was out of necessity, but it feels so good now to be getting out and about town, surrounded by great friends.
Speaking of getting out, this weekend should be full of some pretty exciting outings. I will be working more than usual (not exactly a blast), but we also have some really fun family plans this weekend that I am very much looking forward to!
Wishing you all a beautiful weekend!
