I spent the past weekend with these sweet ladies from my church during our fourth annual girls beach trip. When 11-year-old Carson looked at this group shot taken by our friend and photographer Allison Hilyer, Carson said, "Hey, I see Ford and Copeland's mom; Braxton and Braden's mom; Jackson and Judson's mom ... . This just looks like a bunch of moms."
Although all of us on the trip who have children love to be "just moms" to our families, for just a weekend each year we enjoy just shopping, just giggling, just eating, just gabbing, just reading, just relaxing -- just having fun.
And it's amazing what a few days of being Just Girls can do.
