Summer is wonderful for so many reasons, but one of the best reasons to love the season is that it gives us time to visit old friends. I met my friends Tricia and Kim on a Gymboree message board 8 years ago. We each had a pretty new baby to dress so we had a starting point for conversation. Within a year of first talking online, we met up and found that we had a lot more in common than clothes. Our girls became great friends, too, despite the distance between us. They may even look forward to our summer meetings more than we do!
Leslie. You might want to send some cool, positive thoughts. It looks like she is in the heat of things!
