Lucky In Love

I am so fortunate to have The Sisterhood... a local group of (more than 40!) "Sisters" who all have a young child with Ds. It's an amazing group of women - we laugh together, support new moms, support each other through IEPs/IFSPs, revel in every accomplishment, listen when life gets rough (Ds-related or not)... I don't know what I'd do without them. I truly love my Sisters.

And this past weekend some of us Sisters went to Lake Tahoe for some much needed relaxation and bonding time. Just us girls. Ahhhhhh... so lovely. We'd been planning the trip for quite a while, so it was nice to finally enjoy two days of focusing on ourselves (and each other!).

Here's a few pics from the weekend - and I have to give a very special shout out to Laura Beth's family who offered their AMAZING (the word hardly describes it) house to use for the whole weekend. Thank you for rejuvenating these mamas.

(hot mamas, huh?!)

That's Susan on the right... she arrived a bit later :)

This is by far my favorite picture of the Sisters!


  1. I LOVE The Sisterhood!!! I can't wait to do it again!!
    Love, LB

  2. Your sisterhood must be wonderful. I've never been lucky enough to have friends with children who have special needs but I can imagine the support and love that you all must share. Wonderful x

  3. Looks like it was an amazing time! Glad you were all able to get away!
