This is me with one of my dearest friends, Victoria.

Isn't she beautiful? Isn't this photo great?

Tori is godmother to Zee. It's awesome. She totally buys my kids designer clothes. Aunty Torwee. Everyone loves her.

Me, I adore her. She is one of the single most thoughtful and generous people I know. And she makes me laugh. We share a history.

Only Victoria will know that I am totally doing the 'skinny arm' pose in this pic.

I'm just looking through photos tonight and feeling nostalgic about how much the kids have grown and then I happened across this shot and thought, "God, I'm lucky. I have the greatest girlfriends ever."

Through my girlfriends, I am able to stay connected to who I was before kids. It's so very easy to lose yourself in the fog of motherhood. I like myself as a mother but just as much, I like grown up Angie who drinks too much wine and laughs at dirty jokes with her friends. I never want to lose her.

Girlfriends are everything, aren't they?

Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    Yes, this. Such a fabulous reminder to love who you love and love them BIG. XO

    How lovely! Sounds like you are both lucky to have each other.

    Words I should heed – I need to do some reconnecting with a few beautiful friends.

    I can relate 🙂 I love my girls and feel very blessed to have such strong friendships. Most of my pre baby girlfriends are childless and I love that when we catch up, i am reminded of the person I was (and still am even if it doesn’t feel like it sometimes) before the monkeys came along. Although, I am always compelled to drink far too much, dance on coffee tables & stay up all night with them… That’s ot so great!
