When my husband and I moved to San Diego, we didn’t know a single person. We didn’t have kids, we had new jobs and I was already missing the East Coast life. After a few months we ended up buying a house and knowing someone on our street..what a small world! None of our families lives near us so when it was time to have kids, it definitely required us to become stronger and learn to just figure it out as we went and honestly I wouldn’t change that for the world! We have learned so much as family and about each other.
We have met the most AMAZING people in San Diego and have the greats circle of friends anyone could ask for. As I started my journey through motherhood I did realize that every mommy needs that one go to friend to keep her and her life sane and I have been blessed to find just that. It’s not just the mommy friend, it’s the whole family that you become friends with.
It’s not easy to find but when you need to vent or cry or smile without a single judgement, having that perfect mommy friend will be the best feeling ever. As I have grown to become like a sister to my mommy friend, there is so much we have learned of why this friendship turned out so perfect.
