Have you ever met someone who you just thought was pretty awesome and you wanted to be their best friend?
Well, Meet Dalene.
I think she is one cool mama and I am blessed to call her friend.
As we were in Seattle, I slipped away with the two kiddos to have a mama picnic date. It was rainy and not the best weather, but we still made the picnic happen. (indoors of course!) Dalene and I met a couple of years ago at a wholesale market that Imani Collective was a part of and have stayed in touch through Instagram. She makes me laugh through her posts and insta stories, but she also daily reminds me of strength, endurance and grace.
Social media can be a beautiful thing when individuals are raw and true to themselves. Dalene is as real as it gets and to follow her journey through the gram has been a lot of fun.
We laughed at our picnic as we have embarked on the official “dating” stage of a friendship.
We sat and talked for over two hours while our older kiddo’s ran around and we rocked and fed the newbies. To be honest, I wish I just had more time.
I encourage all of you to put down the phones and to connect. I am forever grateful for my phone and that I can be social from wherever I am, but do not let it hinder you in connecting when you have that chance.
Thank you Dalene for making the time for me. I am daily inspired by you.
