Getting away with your girlfriends
Since becoming a mom, I’ve run away from home on a regular basis to recharge at retreats, art workshops and gatherings with friends. These regular time-outs have been critical to my well-being.
Tacoma mom Liz Lamoreux agrees that moms need time away to nurture themselves and renew interests and friendships. A teacher, author and artist, she runs creative retreats for women. Check her website for upcoming options.
