THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED! CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNER! MARCIA BUTLER OF ONEONTA, AL! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED!
Mommy friends… those of us with kids have all got them! They are the women we meet once our little ones head off to nursery school, while we are all feeling a bit frazzled in the “baby boom” years of our lives. Some of it seems rather foggy in my mind, since I had three babies in 36 months — but I have made some fabulous friends over the years. One of mine, met through nursery school a few years ago when our daughter’s were three years old, is Nancy Parmet Cook. She and I both had three children in a very short span of time. Our group of mom friends all agreed that at times, we didn’t know if we were coming or going – juggling toddlers with newborns, feeling frazzled while trying to keep the house in order, feed our kids healthy foods, get them to school, have play dates — and try ourselves to get work done, get to the gym occasionally, maybe have a few quiet moments of peace, all without losing our keys, cell phones and credit cards. Between handbags, work bags, gym bags, diaper bags, grocery “reusable” bags and maybe if you’re lucky – tennis bags, it quickly became clear that locating the core elements (ID/credit cards, cell phone and perhaps a compact and lipstick) was nearly impossible when scrambling to get out of the door with three kids. Enter Nancy, who started to feel that just the simple act of keeping the necessities together from bag to bag was impossible. She got to work developing a small bag, just big enough for a smartphone, money and credit cards and a few others “musts” like lip balm and a compact – and the Crave Simple bag was born. Along with that, she partnered with her sister, Debbie Parmet Sondock, to develop a Crave Simple blog that brings together experts from various fields to share ideas on simplifying life and getting organized.
