At the beginning of the week my good friend Danielle contacted me to say she was ready to kick off the New York branch of Tattooed Hippie Pirate Mommas... exciting because I'd been waiting for her to settle down after her move back to her home state after helping with THPM in Texas when we kicked off the Austin branch.
The next day, Daily Mail Online caught a glimpse of the calendar sneak peeks and called my landline. I had only been answering it because my cell phone has been glitchy so it's been my way of communication for my day job. The story went live that evening and my phone started blowing up.
When I wake up, there will be 10 moms at my door ready to show the world just how amazing we are. The crew from Inside Edition will be here to interview us in exactly ten hours from now for a spot on the show. It's surreal to think how far it's come.
I'm so proud to be part of a group of such special women. It's almost astounding thinking that I created this group because motherhood was lonely without like-minded mom friends. It's become so much bigger than me... girls who deliver meals after a mom has a baby, who listen and give advice, who understand what it's like to be frustrated and sometimes clueless and totally freaked out. Women that are okay admitting some days are hard and being a mom is a damn tough job.
These women have thanked ME, but it's me who should be thanking them. Without them I wouldn't be where I am today. I needed them more than they will ever know.
