We had our Christmas party at home. After our lunch, we exchanged gifts and wished everyone a fruitful 2017.
They are my closest mommy blogger friends. We met first quarter of 2016 in one Eats a Date event in Quezon City. Seldom did we see each after that. Looking after our boys is perhaps one demanding task that hinders us from leaving the house anytime. Blogging events should be scheduled appropriately or else the kids would suffer. And it is the least we want for our children.
An occasion in our family called for a reunion. They were supportive of the preparation and found time to be part of it. We celebrated my son’s first birthday. From there, I know I have girl friends I could run to for help. They care for and love my little man as their own.
Because of our common interest, we’ve attended a few events together. And in each meeting, we exchanged tips and ways to improve our blogs and even ourselves. There was even a time when Mhaan of mommyrockininstyle.com conducted her first makeup workshop with us as her students. She also shared brands she trusts and colors that would complement our skin tone.
Though we rarely see each other, we still communicate through Facebook. We share stories we’ve heard and seen, update ourselves with the latest trends in blogging, and laugh at our silly jokes and mommy musings.
Last Wednesday, we met and celebrated Christmas. We shared food and stories. We laughed a lot. Each wished one another happy holidays. We also prayed for an even stronger friendship that would last a lifetime.
They are my mommy blogger friends, and I love them dearly. Thank you for the friendship. With you, I always feel safe.
A sweet friendship refreshes the soul.
— Proverbs 27:9
