I'm still not totally on board when I reach the restaurant but then we all get there and hug and settle in for a night of girl talk. And within minutes I feel so lucky to have such wonderful friends in my life. Friends to share the daily ups and downs of being a mother, a wife and a woman. We share so much of ourselves without fear of judgement. We laugh with each other at the silly things and encourage and support each other for the more serious moments. We talk and talk until late in to the night and leave the place with a big smile on our faces.
