The real reason I’m inspired to do this 29 day challenge is because of my wonderful friends and blogging buddies: Ami Worthen, Monica Wyche, and Jenny Badman.

The blog theme is “relative,” and I know that without a doubt for me (and all these women), friends are family. No distinction necessary.

Ami always gets me into situations where I feel like me (and not just mom). Also, she gave me my favorite pair of boots.

Monica maried us. 'Nuff said.

Jenny has the greatest laugh, and we don't spend nearly enough time together. She is the one in the middle (and shout-out to our silly friend, Cathy, too).
