In memory of Anna


It's hard to explain to those who have never experienced it themselves.... the bond, the true and absolute friendship, the sisterhood... that you can form with a group of girls, most of which you've never met in real life. Throw pregnancy and first-time-mommyhood in the mix... lots of fears, lots of joys, lots and lots of firsts.... and you create a family of mommys that have a pure respect and love of each other. A family that has been together almost 5 years....

If you've never experienced this, you probably think I've lost my mind. I used to be one of those people...

Yesterday we lost one of the sweetest, down-to-earth mommas. She was a friend, a listener, a supporter, and a mother of 4. I'd love for y'all to keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers. Beth has written a sweet tribute to her here.

Yes, it's crazy how much we can connect to people that we don't meet in person. Thank you for the beautiful tribute to Anna!

I feel so sick about this. How can this be? Really. I mean I *talked* to her about all sorts of stuff. Miscarriages, babies, whats for dinner...right now my heart just aches for her husband and her children. What a sad day.
