Hey everybody! Happy Thanksgiving!! It is Thanksgiving week - how is that possible??! As moms, we are all too familiar with how quickly time continues to pass. Hopefully, this week, we will all be able to sloooow down and give deliberate attention to those things for which we are incredibly thankful. We would love to know the things that make you feel #blessed!! Obviously, we are all so thankful for family, friends, church, our homes, careers… but what are some other things that make you stop and truly feel full of gratitude? We would love to hear from you!!
For us two, we are thankful for longtime friends. We’ve mentioned our supper club before, and just a week ago, we got away for 48 hours for the very. first. time. ever! Literally, this supper club has been going for about 9 years, and this was the first girls trip! So what better than to bring our podcast gear along and record a conversation! Not all of the girl gang was present at the point at which we hit record, but we love that we get to introduce you to some of our (hashtag)tribe. 😂 And no, Nathan was not along for that part. We hit record all by ourselves and it worked!
This direction of this conversation was maybe a bit planned out, but that was for our safety AND yours. Haha! We just want to encourage you to find co-mom-unity. Find it! It’s not magical, it takes work, even some conflict, and it takes stick-to-it-iveness. Invite some friends over for food, coffee, a book club, whatever! Just do it however feels comfortable for you. We can not live in isolation, especially as moms. It may even feel awkward at first, but keep on! It’s worth it. If you need some ideas or encouragement, or have any questions, post them below! We would LOVE to help you find community where you are.
From our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:
Leslie is totally into Slip Silk Pillowcase, but since Jennifer has talked about this, she also brought Maybelline Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil to the table.
Emily is totally into Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Sunset Tea. Jennifer likes the Harney and Sons Paris!
Amy is totally into Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional Pro Balm Face Primer - it’s like wood putty for yo’ face!
Julianne is totally into Ma Bella Goat’s Milk Soap… almond vanilla smells amazing!
Jennifer is totally into The North Face Chabot Crew Shirt - she wore it for a week straight earlier this month!
Courtney (and so many others) is totally into Disney+! Have you tried it yet?
And don’t forget our next Book Club pick- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. It’s a beautiful choice and fun read for over the holidays! Have a great week, mamas! HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We are so thankful for you!!
