That's me. I was so nervous about talking in front of everyone...but I did do okay. I did start to choke up when I told the group how these girls were like my family. I WAS going to tell everyone how they supported me when I had Bailey, but I was too emotional and didn't want to break down in front of everyone. This group is my family here!

Kim-she has twin girls,so cute. Anne Knox, she's a dentist from Murray, KY. Lissette...she's fron New Orleans and has the best accent ever! :)
Katie and BFF!

Everyone coming in and mingling

Signing in and getting name tags.
Yesterday we had our JCRMA welcome lunch at Cobb Lane restaurant in downtown Birmingham. JCRMA stands for Jefferson Co. Residents' Medical Alliance. We're basically a doctor's wives club. Somehow I got the position as president of this group...but it's working out well. We had about 45 people at the luncheon and there were about 20 or so new faces. Throughout the month we have play bunco, have girls night out, mom and children play groups, and we even do chairty work. It's just an organization where we support each other because this is not an easy time in our lives. All of our husband's are either residents or med students and we're often left alone and have no family around. This has become my family and I love these girls! I am so blessed to have so many great friends and such a great support group.
