Though female friendship has always been very important to me, (women supporting women is practically the Milk & Moon brand in one slogan!) The absolute necessity of it really hit home during the pandemic. All the ways in which my girlfriends have one held another together as we’ve navigated the curveballs of the last few years and their different impacts on all our families have been so life-giving. I could get quite emotional. Friendships for me ( and all of us I guess!) had to become very intentional and the ways in which we communicated and spent time together had to change.
