with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
I was chatting with an acquaintance who works at a local store and we got to talking about the holidays and what we’ve been up to. She mentioned that she’d gone out to dinner with friends the night before and had stayed out way to late talking and was tired. Then she joked that she felt a bit weird because she was the only single girl at a table with three couples. I assured her that if they were good friends, nobody else probably even noticed.
As for me, I do have friends who are single or divorced and I haven’t found that it makes our friendship any “different”, just because they don’t have a husband and/or kids. It’s just like I get along with my married girlfriends even though they have different careers and hobbies than I do. My closest single girlfriends do not live nearby, sadly, but when I do get the chance to see them and spend time with them, I appreciate it so much. And I appreciate the great girlfriends who live here in town, who just happen to all be married.
How about you? Do you have single friends that you’re close to? Or do you find yourself hanging out mostly with other couples?
