Within six months all four of us girlfriends had our first baby. It was pretty crazy then and is pretty crazy now. We are all on maternity leave together. We grew up going to the same church and going to youth group together, and now we are in this stage of life alongside one another. We have two other close friends that are also in this stage, but they are both on the west side of the continent. Those of us who are around have been trying to be intentional about time together while we can. So last week we took a day and went to The Beaches in Toronto for a walk and picnic. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time!
