So today was my Wednesday coffee date with my my old BFF (aka blogger Maria Pace-Wynters). I used to love hanging out with her. She is funny & charming, soulful & authentic, talented & beautiful. And she used to make me feel super cool just to be around her. But that was until I met my new BFF, Justin Trudeau.
Lola and I were just hanging out in Spinelli's (aka The Italian Centre Shop - a coffee shop attached to a great Italian market) with Maria and Scarlett like we do most Wednesdays. We were having a lively discussion about dog poop and dental anesthesia over coffee and calzones. It's the highlight of my week, if I'm honest. Nothing can keep me from it and I mean nothing. Like the fact that I hadn't showered or washed my hair in a few days. Or the fact that moments before I had to leave Lola had just fallen asleep and I had to wake her to get her coat on. These days I don't always get it together before I leave the house. Getting the two kids up, clothed, fed and out the door to walk Meg to school before 8:30 is usually about all I can muster. I put on a hat and a smile and hope nobody stands close enough to smell me. If I am lucky, when I get home from our walk to school Lola will have a nap and I will have a shower. This morning I wasn't so lucky. But as I told you that will not keep me away from my soul nourishing time spent with Maria..... So where was I? Oh yah, dog poop and dental anesthesia.... and enter Justin Trudeau.
