My best friend and I have been friends since 7th grade. We have gone through many phases together – adolescence, college (roommates all four years), marriage, motherhood, etc. We have traveled together many times over the years, although the last time we traveled as “just the two of us” was almost 11 years ago. We have said countless times over the years, “We really need to go away, just the two of us.” For one reason or another (usually one of us being pregnant or taking care of a new baby), it just has not happened.
We have decided that THIS IS THE YEAR and I cannot wait! I am really looking forward to relaxing and having girl time with by BFF. As moms, we rarely take that time for ourselves. My fellow CFF blogger Jamie blogged about the importance of girlfriends a few months back. I agree wholeheartedly with her feelings on the topic.
Being the Type A people that we are, we have already started a spreadsheet of options. However, we would love to hear from YOU as we plan our trip.
What advice do you have to share for going on a girlfriend getaway?
Where are your favorite destinations within driving distance?
What are some of YOUR favorite memories from a girlfriend getaway?
If you wouldn’t mind leaving us a comment, we would greatly appreciate it.
Also, if you would like to be featured in a future post in the girlfriend getaways series, please send a response to me at firstname.lastname@example.org (and cc: email@example.com). We would love to share your stories and pictures… Maybe they will inspire more girlfriend getaways!
