Going for It: Woman Warrior

No friends quite like girlfriends

Aside from my dog, the aspect of life in D.C. I miss more than any other since moving to San Diego is spending time with my girlfriends. 

I've never been the type to join cliques, but have always cultivated deep and meaningful relationships. Over the last few years in particular I surrounded myself with friends who both nourished and brought out the best in me. We expected nothing less than fabulous from one another.

Over warm drinks and breakfast bites in a coffee shop in downtown San Diego recently, I felt, for the first time in months, a sense of camaraderie with a group of girls who started a monthly breakfast club.

Sitting among these creative and entrepreneurial women felt like a combination exhale and burst of laughter, a glimmer of hope that this missing element, so essential to my own success and well-being, might come to life again.
