Summer break sounded like a great idea a couple months ago. #WhenDoesSchoolStart?
Now that we are BFFs, I just can’t tell you how much I love and admire you. You are so wise about so many things. I can ask you where to get sports bras at a discount. I mean, really. And I will never not know where the nearest Starbucks is. Whew.
We do need to talk, though. It’s about my husband. I think he is smitten, and I wish you would quit chatting with him so much. He doesn’t really need directions to anywhere—he was an Eagle Scout, for God’s sake, and he can read maps.
Once you’re a Mom, the words ‘because I said so’ make so much more sense.
As always, you all had some great stuff to say this week! Here’s some of our favorite feedback:

I know now what I could not have known then: you are an intelligent, talented, kind-hearted, wise soul with endless potential. You can be whatever—whoever—you want to be, and I want nothing quite as adamantly as I want you to be happy.
Being a Mom means knowing how to secretly eat the snacks you just told your kids they couldn’t have.
