Mommies, Movies & Munchies

To say I have met the most extraordinary women on this journey and to say that they have become near and dear to my heart would truly be an understatement. What started as a social lunch once a month quickly grew into bonding with some of the kindest, funniest, and special women I've ever known. We all share the same agency, we all are adopting or have adopted from China, and we all - though different in many ways - are bonded through our journey and now, through our wonderful and amazing ability to relate to one another as friends and "sisters". There really is no explanation for it. Why should these women be different from any others? I've tried to socialize in groups before and it never came to more than very basic interactions. The truth here, is that there is no rhyme or reason to it. Erin wanted to meet - so she sent out the invite and we all showed up. That was several months we're inseparable. I can't explain it...why don't I let the pictures do the talking...

Although, I will say this - the other night we got together for Movie Night at Valerie's...and my gosh...I haven't laughed that hard in months! I can't remember the last time I had so much fun! We all laughed and laughed...and so many things came up that have now immortalized the night in our minds...for more on those, you must go visit Valerie's blog! It is absolutely hilarious what she wrote (and so true).

I love ya girls! So Kelley, Erin, Valerie, Robyn, and Jamie - Here's to many, many more! And thanks to Erin and Robyn, who I stole so many of these pictures from...

My, My aren't we getting fancy!! No wonder it took you so long to update your blog. I was beginning to think you were going to have to go after you like we did Jamie.

Seriously, I am so glad we are traveling on this journey together and can't wait for many more memories!!

Erin said...

Well, I love you too, my friend! I am so lucky to know you (and everyone else in "The Silly Six"). You have made my life so much more than it ever was before.

Kelley said...

I love, love, LOVE the slide shows that you have added to your blog. I'll be sitting here all afternoon looking at the photos fly by! I am so happy to be part of your journey. I absolutely adore you and Anton!

Adoption friends help make this journey such an extra special journey.

You are lucky to have each other.

Looks like fun!

Keep smilin!

Jamie said...

Okay so Robyn had to take the cheap shot about me not posting. Blah! I love your slide show Ms. Fancy pants. To me, you will always be the veggie queen.

So the question is, when are we doing the silly six again...with the holidays coming we need to get this planned.

Love Ya!

Valerie said...

Patiently waiting...I was beginning to think you had taken the kids to the pool for an extended visit ;-)

Love the slide show, I a am stuck with the Yabba Dabba Doo blog page and am not nearly so fancy.

Still loving my hat and still laughing when recalling the evening.

Love V
