It seems like girl time suffers a lot once the kids arrive--but no matter how busy your life gets you just have to make time for your girlfriends. When you are lucky enough to find a mom friend to be by your side through the early days of parenting, it is a true gift. I met Sherri 8 years ago in line for a "Mommy and Me" movie. It was a theater in Battery Park that allowed moms to bring babies to midday movies. I was going stir-crazy at home with my new baby and thought it would be fun to try. I don't remember the movie, but I do remember meeting Sherri and her new baby in line.
She too was from Maryland and our daughters were born a week apart. We were both new-ish to NYC and trying to navigate urban motherhood--a style very different from the way we grew up. Now almost a decade later we have been through a lot. I count myself incredibly lucky to have Sherri as a friend and I try to celebrate our friendship every time I can. The month was pretty full. Sherri and I got together earlier at the Glamour Shot event hosted by Bailey's (read about it here).
On our night out we went to the Time Warner Center. First we did a little shopping--shoes, foodie treats and more. Then we settled in for drinks at the Time Warner Center. We had small bites as the pianist worked some magic. It was the perfect time to catch up.
The good news? You don't have to go out to create a special night with friends. Create a glamourous night in with this recipe.
