I have talked about my village of moms many times...the women who started off as "baby friends" but quickly became best friends. Friends I have only known for 3 years, yet I can barely remember a time in which they weren't a part of my life. And it's not just the moms. I love these kids more than I can say. I have seen them grow from itty bitty babies to pre-schoolers with the most amazing personalities.
Last weekend we all had dinner at our house and our friend who is an amazing photographer came over to take some pictures of the kids. This is one of my favorites and captures how fun they are and just how much they love each other (the only thing missing is Ava....she had just woken up from a nap in the car and wasn't quite ready to have her picture taken).
Leaving this village we have created is at the top of the 'why it's breaking my heart to leave the bay area' list.
