Today by popular demand, I’m starting a new series called Lighten Up about Friendship Over 40. Back when I wrote Women Are Scary, about finding mom friends during the early childhood years, I had women ask me when I was going to write a book about finding mom friends later in life, and finding mom friends when you have teenagers. My response was always, hold on lemme get there first. Well I’m here now and several of you have asked me about friendship over 40 so we’re going to explore this over the next few weeks. I’m excited about this series because I’ve got some fantastic guests coming on to unpack all this with me. And this series is for everyone. If you’re in your twenties and thirties, there’s some relationship gold in here, so enjoy hearing people a little farther along prepare you for what’s coming. If you’re in your forties, you know what we’re talking about, so pull up a chair and come help us solve all our problems. If you’re out of your forties, send us all your thoughts and prayers and feel free to laugh at us behind our backs. Wherever you are in life, text a friend, grab a cup of coffee, and keep working hard at those relationships.
To kick us off, my friend Elisha Beach, founder of The Mom Forum, is joining me. Elisha and I met on the set of Moms Everyday, a TV show we were on several years ago, and I just love her. She’s so easy to talk to and open and honest – so open and honest in fact that a photo she posted of herself nursing while on the toilet went viral a few years ago. I knew we had to be friends immediately. She was on the show all the way back on episode 27, back when I think we both were still in our thirties, in fact, so let’s welcome her 40 year old self back on the show. And I’m so glad YOU’RE here joining us today, so get comfy, listen in, and lighten up.
