Bottoms Up to Fabulous Friends!
Mom, first let me thank you for teaching me how to sew. Now let me describe this day I had last week. Five of us girlfriends and 8 of our kids got together this week to complete the "cool bag" project. The weather was hot, the food was wonderful, the Miller Chill was cold and refreshing, the sky threatened rain, the kids jumped on trampolines, played in the kiddie pool, drew pictures on the sidewalk, and ate popsicles while us girls -fabrics, notions and sewing machines in hand- completed the coolest tote bags in one afternoon! We had so much fun! I am so lucky to have found this group of funny, interesting, creative, and fabulous friends! When we get together, I know I'm in for lots of laughs and a little therapeutic venting as we talk of the challenges and humors of being modern day moms and wives. A Big, Huge thanks to Megan for coming up with the great idea, and another Big, Huge thanks to Jen for making it a great success at her home. You guys are the greatest! Here's to more crafty adventures to come!
