I had the opportunity to attend an out-of-town wedding recently with several former grad school friends, many of whom I still keep in close touch with. Due to last minute planning, I “represented” our clan while leaving my two young kids and husband behind. As hard as it was to go alone, I had such an amazing time. My friends and I danced, drank, and spent quality time together, talking until wee hours in the morning. As best I can describe it, I felt “alive” again, like my old self- fun, funny, carefree, spontaneous, relaxed. It was glorious!
