Making time for ourselves is harder and harder with kids, husbands, and jobs.  There is something magical that happens when women take time for themselves- especially to connect with other women!  Being with 11 of my best friends from Princeton to celebrate our collective 40th birthdays was an absolute blast.  We let our hair down ...
