You know, the kind that feel like a warm blanket and cup of hot cocoa at a cool weather slumber party.  I got to know these ladies through work when I was practicing acupuncture in San Diego.  After a few moves (one of the gals was in Germany) and a baby, we got to reunite for our ladies “night/day.” 

HMMMM how would I describe these gems??? A bit of Astrology, Anthropologie and sexy cars. You guess which is which!

I was trying to convey my ultimate joy when posing and when I look at the photos, I see the 4 hours of sleep I had the night prior! 

You can read about some other ways I’ve made friends over on Stephanie’s The Loudmouth Lifestyle. Stephanie recently had a baby and she is quite a cool character! Please check her out! You can also find her on Twitter.


  • Ah, friends. I had a bit of a year in that department. I had to come face to face with the fact that I was surrounding myself with people I coulnd’t be 100% myself with, and had to sever bridges with a couple of them because I came to realize that they had a negative influence on me. Luckily I still have people in my life who love me for who I am, and with whom I don’t have to hold back or edit myself! It truly does give you that cozy, comfortable, warm feeling of a soft blanket and a cup of cocoa on a cold night, I coulnd’t have said it better!

    And you look gorgeous, no matter the lack of sleep! I don’t see a tired mama, I see a sweet gal with a smile that can light up the room 🙂

    • Oh, Elisa, I totally know how that goes! We all go through those restructuring times in our lives. So challenging and so worth it, right? I totally dread those feelings of transition!!! I am sending you encouragement and love. You are so kind to me! Thank you for all of your encouragement as well!!!!XO
